Donnie McClurkin

SUN 8A-10A

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 multi-platinum and gold-selling albums is an amazing songwriter that has penned chart topping tunes like, “Stand” and “We Fall Down,” and have 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. His three solo albums have all topped the Billboard charts including both the Gospel and secular R&B playlists.

With that type of Gospel and Mainstream popularity, it should come as no surprise that Donnie's list of awards and accolades includes two Grammy Awards, ten Stellar Awards, two BET Awards, two Soul Train Awards, one Dove Award and an NAACP Image Award.

Truly an international Superstar, Donnie performed tracks on his last live album in Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and Dutch.

Donnie's love of radio has led to his building a mobile recording studio in his Church that he can also take on the road." As much as I love music and singing, I really love doing radio and the direct feedback I get from my listeners all over the country. I never thought I would be having this much fun doing radio and I could touch and impact so many people. Trust me, I read every single e-mail and respond both in writing and on the radio to all my listeners", says Pastor McClurkin.

More important than being one of the premiere figures in Gospel Music, Donnie is first and foremost a humanitarian, teacher, and man of God. McClurkin served as an assistant to Pastor Marvin Winans at Detroit's Perfecting Church for over a decade. He was ordained and sent out by Winans in 2001 to establish Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, Long Island New York, where he is also now head Pastor. 

We are proud to welcome him to The New 97.7 family where he can be heard Sundays from 8am to 10am.
