THE GUITARS - CHRIS CLARK
Chris Clark is an American soul singer who recorded for Motown Records. Recording on the V.I.P. label, one of several Motown imprints, Chris Clark is still acknowledged by Northern Soul fans for songs such as 1965's "Do Right Baby Do Right" and 1966's "Love's Gone Bad."

Another of her notable songs was the 1967 single "I Want To Go Back There Again." The United States' answer to Dusty Springfield, Clark managed to top the R&B singles chart. "Love's Gone Bad" made #105 pop, and #41 R&B in 1966. She also co-wrote the screenplay for "Lady Sings the Blues," a 1972 film starring Diana Ross, Billy Dee Williams, and Richard Pryor.

In recent years, Clark has become an art photographer and has exhibited her work mainly to art dealers and galleries. She also performs on stage occasionally in clubs in the United States and in Europe. She currently lives in Santa Rosa, California.
