    About our headlining artist Donnie McClurkin
    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 multi-platinum and gold-selling CD(s) is an amazing singer/songwriter known for chart-topping tunes like "Stand" and "We Fall Down" and has also worn the hat of producer on his projects. His knack for nailing songs that others can identify with has helped McClurkin to carve out a spot in the hearts of millions.

    Penned and produced by McClurkin, his song "I Need You" went to number 1 on the charts, his first single since the release of his 2014 album, Duets, for which McClurkin 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 as well as classics on his forthcoming seventh solo album.

    Besides being one of the best-selling Gospel recording artists in the history of the genre, for ten years, he has hosted The Donnie McClurkin Show, which airs on Magic 106.9 Sunday from 9 am to noon and also draws over 5 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.
