Donnie McClurkin

The Future Of Gospel & Urban Radio

BIOGRAPHY


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.

Besides being one of the best-selling Gospel recording artists in the history of the genre, for eight 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. T&T Creative produced award-winning Donnie McClurkin Show, syndicated by Oceanic Tradewinds/Westwood One, sent a shockwave throughout the entire radio industry with historic results in two of the nation’s biggest radio markets, New York and Philadelphia by snagging the #1 spot! TDMS is also rated #1 in the highly coveted 25-54 age demographic and ranking high in the Top 19 radio markets in the country.

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 .

“Personal Notes” is the most popular daily feature in the DMS. Each day Donnie ends the show with a personal message of inspiration and encouragement. We also have CD’s available for sale that offer 60 Personal Notes on the CD. Perhaps a sponsor would like to have their logo on the cover art?

“Stumper” Stumper is the second most popular segment on the DMS. Donnie claims to know every cartoon jingle ever written so Stumper a rusty old junk yard robot tries to stump Donnie with cartoon jingle trivia. This feature is sort of like name that tune.

“It’s Email Time” Donnie simply answers an email question from a listener.

“Word of the Day” Recorded directly from Pastor Donnie’s church services we provide a inspirational message to our listeners this is accompanied by a video companion piece that we post on FB and donnieradio.com

Friday Funnies” Christian comedians share their jokes with our listeners.

“Power Pick Of the Week” Donnie selects a song that he believes is a hit regardless of what the powers that be dictate and gives a new artist a little air time.

“Kid Bits” Donnie loves kids and Kid Bits can range from Donnie having a funny conversation with a kid because after all they say the darndest things, to creating a song with a kid.

“Sing Along With Donnie” We post one of Donnie’s songs on line for listeners to download minus the vocal track and then they sing along to it and send it back to us. Donnie will then sing along with that recording live on the show.

“AOK” (Acts of Kindness) Donnie works with Pastors from around the country to seek out special people who perform Acts of Kindness just because it’s the right thing to do. Inspired by CNN’s Hero’s.

“I Choose to be Dancing Kids contest” The best interpretation of Donnie’s song in any art form wins

“Heart of Gold” This feature is similar to AOK but this one does not work directly with the Pastors.

Mystery Guest” This is also a listener favorite, in this feature we disguise the voice of a Gospel Celebrity and Donnie tries to guess who it is by asking them questions. Kind of like the old TV show What’s my Line.
