About Donnie McClurkin
Donnie McClurkin is one of the world’s top Gospel music artists with over 10 million albums sold worldwide. In addition to his three Grammy awards, other top honors include 11 Stellar Awards, four BET Awards, four NAACP Image Awards, and three Dove Awards.
His world was characterized by violence, alcoholism and abuse, but young Donnie McClurkin found a safe haven in his church, Bethel Gospel Tabernacle, Assemblies of God. It was there, at the age of nine, when he made a commitment to Christ. Throughout his troubled youth, amidst the strife of daily life, he learned to stand on the promises in the scripture. “A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men” (Prov. 18:16). “I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it” (Rev. 3:8).
