PASTOR DONNIE MCCLURKIN
DONNIE McCLURKIN The three-time Grammy winner, Donnie McClurkin, known worldwide for his powerful and rich vocal delivery has proven that he is far more than a gospel singer. The man behind the multiplatinum and gold-selling albums have written chart-topping tunes such as “Stand” and “We Fall Down.” His knack for nailing songs that others can identify with has helped McClurkin to carve out a spot in the hearts of millions. The award-winning album The Journey (Live) featured a collection of the singer’s top hits with two new studio recordings. McClurkin penned and produced “I Need You” his first single since the release of his album, DUETS, for which he collaborated with fellow celebrated gospel artists including Dorinda Clark-Cole, Tina Campbell, John P. Kee, Marvin Sapp and Tye Tribbett. Donnie McClurkin is excited about sharing new music on his forthcoming eighth solo album set for release in 2019 on RCA Records| Camdon Music. Besides being one of the best-selling Gospel recording artists in the history of the genre, for thirteen years he has hosted The Donnie McClurkin Show, which draws over five million listeners in 70 plus markets including the international reach in London, Jamaica ,The Bahamas and Nigeria. The award-winning radio program is arguably one of the most successful syndicated properties in the history of Gospel and Urban radio. His highly rated shows are produced by T&T Creative and syndicated by Gary Bernstein’s Oceanic Tradewinds and Westwood One. In the very challenging landscape of the new PPM ratings environment, Donnie’s radio shows sent a shockwave throughout the entire radio industry with historic #1 double digit ratings in two of the nation’s biggest radio markets, New York and Philadelphia! Indeed, TDMS is rated #1 in the highly coveted 25-54 age demographic across a large portion of Donnie’s radio footprint. His social media imprint is impressive with close to three million followers that he interacts with on a regular basis. McClurkin appeared as a judge for six seasons on the popular Sunday Best show that aired weekly on BET (Black Entertainment Television). He performed in the highly publicized gospel tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin during the American Music Awards. On the film side McClurkin penned songs for soundtracks such as, Lady Killer’s (New Line), The Prince of Egypt (DreamWorks) and added his voice to a song featured in An Extremely Goofy Movie (Disney). From the concert stage to the big and small screen, fans have seen the singer shine in cameo appearances on shows such as The Parker, Girlfriends, Paramount film The Fighting Temptations starring Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Beyonce Knowles and a myriad of award shows. However, it was in Sony Screen Gems/ Rainforest Films, The Gospel starring Boris Kodjoe and Idris Elba, that McClurkin made his debut in a character role. He also appears regularly as host on TBN (Trinity Broadcast Network) that has a worldwide reach.
