Donnie Mcclurkin Biography
Donnie Mcclurkin born Donald Andrew McClurkin Jr., is an American gospel singer and minister. He was born on November 9, 1959 in Chester, South Carolina.
Year 2010 started with McClurkin being honored with a BMI Trailblazer’s Award alongside his mentor, Pastor Andrae Crouch, he received his third GRAMMY Award for “Wait On he Lord”, the hit single with Karen Clarke Sheard from his We Are All One: Live From Detroit CD, and was nominated for another NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Gospel Artist category. In 2007 McClurkin was honored at both the 15th Annual Trumpet Awards and the NARAS Recording Academy – NY Chapter. Nestled beside the honoree trophies are several other Grammy, Dove, BET, Soul Train and NAACP Image Awards, statuettes and plaques.
McClurkin’s talent did not go unnoticed by “the suits” on the other side of the entertainment fence. The studios soon came calling for McClurkin to create tunes for soundtracks such as, “Lady Killer’s” (New Line), “The Prince of Egypt” (DreamWorks) and “The Goofy Movie” (Disney). From the concert stage to the big and small screen, fans have also seen this gospel crooner shine in cameo appearances on UPN’s “The Parkers”, “Girlfriends”, “Meet The Browns” (Tyler Perry Paramount Pictures, “The Fighting Temptations” starring Cuba Gooding, Jr and Beyonce’ Knowles and a myriad of Award Shows. However, it was in Sony Screen Gems/ Rainforest Films “The Gospel,” starring Boris Kodjoe and Idris Elba, that McClurkin made his debut in a character role. His face has been sprawled on the pages of USA Today, New York Times, Essence Magazine, Ebony & Jet Magazines, Billboard, Daily Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. There is definitely far more to this man than his music.
It was never McClurkin’s intent to retire as a recording artist. He always knew that singing was just one of the gifts that would be used as a platform to crossover to another arena in the business. His long-time vision of starting a record label has finally arrived; Camdon Music, the name of McClurkin’s label, is well on its way to becoming a reality. Heading up a label will position him to showcase his many gifts while allowing his keen ability to hear great talent and discover the musical potential in artists from every walk of life. Already signed and sealed to Camdon Music is McClurkin’s sister, Andrea Mellini, who sang background with him on all his recordings, and Perfecting Faith Choir.
Camdon Records will not only be home to the best music around, but it will feature the spoken word as well. The Donnie McClurkin Ministry Series, which can currently be found in Wal-Mart stores across the U.S. and www.camdonmusic.com is another division of the label that fans will enjoy. Powerful messages like “The Valley of God” and “Attachments” is just a sample of what’s to come.
