Donnie McClurkin (born January 25, 1959) is an American gospel music singer and minister. He has won three Grammy awards, ten Stellar awards, two BET awards, two Soul Train awards, one Dove award and one NAACP Image award for his work.
A friendship with a Warner Alliance executive resulted in his signing to the label for his 1996 self-titled LP, with producers Mark Kibble of Take 6, Cedric and Victor Caldwell plus Andraé Crouch. The album, which featured the perennially popular "Stand," went gold shortly after being publicly lauded by Oprah Winfrey.
At the 48th annual Grammy Awards, he won in the category Traditional Soul Gospel Album, for "Psalms, Hymns & Spiritual Songs."
McClurkin is best known for his hit songs “Stand” and “We Fall Down” which are played in heavy rotation on both Gospel and Urban radio. His three solo albums have topped the Billboard charts.
Dovetailing off the success of his near double-platinum selling live album, McClurkin released “We All Are One: Live In Detroit” in 2009 which also topped Billboard charts across various musical genres.
He performed tracks on his last live album in Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and Dutch.
