Known worldwide as the tall raspy tenor who commands your attention with his powerful and rich sounding vocals, Donnie McClurkin has more than proven that he is far more than a gospel singer. The man behind the platinum and gold selling CD(s) is an amazing songwriter that not only have penned chart topping tunes like, “Stand” and “We Fall Down,” but has also worn the hat of producer on his projects. His knack for nailing songs that others can identify with and serving them up with a compelling vocal delivery has helped McClurkin to carve out a spot in the hearts of millions.
When asked what message he wants his life to convey, McClurkin says, “I hope people will be able to say that I really had a true relationship with God,“ he concluded.” “Not only did I sing it, but also my very life exemplified it… no façade or hypocrisy. When I was wrong, I was wrong, but I took blame rather than allow holiness to appear to be some fabricated way of life. I want that people will not have seen me, but rather seen that this is what a relationship with Jesus is like and I would hope it could be said that holiness was what I lived, and what I passed on to the next generation, and the next.”
