Claudine Clark (born April 26, 1941, Macon, Georgia, United States) is an American R&B musician, best known as the singer and composer of the 1962 hit, "Party Lights",[1] which reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Clark grew up in Philadelphia, began recording in 1958 for the Herald record label, then moved to New York. She had a hit with her second single for Chancellor Records, the self-penned "Party Lights," but her follow-up, "Walkin' Through a Cemetery", was a commercial failure. She continued to record and compose, including under the alias Joy Dawn for the Swan Records label.
