Donnie McClurkin Biography

Donnie McClurkin is an American gospel music singer and minister. He has won three Grammy awards, ten Stellar awards, two BET awards, two Soul Train awards, one Dove award and one NAACP Image award for his work.

When McClurkin was 8 years old, his 2-year-old brother was hit and killed by a speeding driver. Soon after the loss, McClurkin experienced family turmoil and shortly after became a victim of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of his great uncle, and years after by his great uncle's son. Two of his sisters dealt with substance abuse as well. The young McClurkin found comfort in church and through an aunt who sang background vocals with gospel music musician Andraé Crouch. He formed the McClurkin Singers by the time he was a teenager, and later formed another group, the New York Restoration Choir.

He was hired as an associate minister at Marvin Winans' Perfecting Church in Detroit, in 1989. McClurkin served as an assistant to Winans for over a decade. In 1991, a sharp pain and swelling, followed by internal bleeding led, he says, to a diagnosis of leukemia. The doctor suggested immediate treatment, but McClurkin, who was then 31, decided to take his own advice. "I tell people to believe that God will save you," he says, "[and] I had to turn around and practice the very thing that I preached."

He was ordained and sent out by Winans in 2001 to establish Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, New York, where he is now Senior Pastor.

A friendship with a Warner Alliance executive resulted in his signing to the label for his 1996 self-titled LP, with producers Mark Kibble of Take 6, Cedric and Victor Caldwell plus Andraé Crouch. The disc, which featured the perennially popular "Stand," went gold shortly after being publicly lauded by Oprah Winfrey. McClurkin is best known for his hit songs “Stand” and “We Fall Down,” which were played in heavy rotation on both Gospel and Urban radio.

Tom Versen and Tony Sisti of T&T Creative signed McClurkin to a radio syndication deal with advertising giant Dial-Global and syndicator Gary Bernstein. T&T Creative provided a mobile recording studio in Pastor Donnie's church that he can also take on the road. In 2009, he also broadcast his own television series, "Perfecting Your Faith," on cable television. His television appearances include "Good Morning America," CBS’s "The Early Show," "The View," "Girlfriends" and "The Parkers." He has also been featured in such films as "The Gospel" and "The Fighting Temptations."
