Donnie McClurkin Show

Sundays (7am – 9pm)

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 CD(s) is an amazing songwriter that have 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 current song, “I Need You” is making a buzz in the industry and recently one of the most added at gospel radio. Penned and produced by McClurkin “I Need You” is 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 draws over 5 million listeners in 60 plus markets including the International reach in London, Jamaica and The Bahamas. The award-winning radio program is arguably one of the most successful syndicated properties in the history of Gospel and Urban radio. His highly rated shows are produced by T&T Creative and syndicated by Gary Bernstein’s Oceanic Tradewinds and Westwood One.

In the very challenging landscape of the new PPM ratings environment, Donnie’s radio shows sent a shockwave throughout the entire radio industry with historic #1 double digit ratings in two of the nation’s biggest radio markets, New York and Philadelphia! Indeed, TDMS is rated #1 in the highly coveted 25-54 age demographic across a large portion of Donnie’s radio footprint. As a way of celebrating his success with his listeners and affiliate stations, Donnie decided to embark on a 10 year anniversary tour this year where he is visiting some of the cities that have helped him achieve such incredible milestones. He is also recognizing deserving “Unsung Heroes” in every city with his personal “heart of gold award”.

On the film and television side McClurkin penned songs 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 the singer shine in cameo appearances show such as the “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. He has been featured 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.
