For a man who has declared that he may at any moment cease making music to concentrate fully on his passion for ministering, Donnie McClurkin has never stayed away from recording profoundly uplifting music for the soul for very long. Born in 1959, McClurkin was encouraged at an early age by the legendary Andrae' Crouch, after his aunt became a singer in the Gospel great's choir. Fighting through a rough home life and a battle with cancer, Donnie was eventually discovered and recorded a solo album. After an appearance on Oprah Winfrey's top-rated television show, Donnie's solo debut was catapulted to the upper regions of the Gospel charts and his career was born. Donnie has won three GRAMMY® Awards, as well as BET, Soul Train and Dove awards.
