A Busy Summer is ahead of International SuperStar Pastor Donnie McClurkin as he travels the country singing, speaking and inspiring the masses who listen to his wildly popular radio show. 

Up first for the in demand singer is an appearance at the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) annual convention.  There, McClurkin, who is also a diabetic, will speak and perform on the opening day of the convention during the morning session. He will share the stage with everyone’s favorite doctor, Mehmet C. Oz M.D., fondly known as Dr. Oz. And set to moderate the onstage interview with the two men is former CBS Early Show host, Rene Syler.  


McClurkin will talk about his health issues with diabetes, giving a familiar face-and inspiration – to an ailment that affects millions. It’s “ fitting also because the minister works in radio and host a nationally syndicated radio broadcast, “The Donnie McClurkin Show,’

which airs in more than 60 markets.

The show recently added a second hour, called “Gospel Gold,” which highlights classic gospel songs from influential artists including Andrae Crouch, The Hawkins, The Staple Singers, Clara Ward and the legendary James Cleveland. In addition there’s a new The Belle Report with Sheilah Belle, aka “The Belle” which highlights news in Gospel community from across the country and there’s a segment called “Donnie’s All- Star Kids,” which focuses on children who are doing amazing things in their personal lives and in their community.


Recently, McClurkin featured a 15 year-old professional painter, a 14-year-old college student and an 11 year-old who started a program that’s feeding people worldwide.


“My true excitement about the radio show comes from being able to be interactive while reaching several million people. Through radio, internet, and technology I’m able to communicate with the “All Star Kid” segment and our “Kid Bits” segment,” Donnie says. “Kids call in to ask me about the bible or any subject. We’re able to interact with listeners on-line taking telephone calls from people all over the world.”


Later in August, he has his annual New York Call conference, which happens August 28th in Eisenhower Park. The minister also is kicking off a series of meetings called “Perfecting Music Ministry Conference,” set to launch August 19 in Chicago. The two-day conference will include day- time workshops with guest speakers and evening services.  

“I want to utilize all my gifts to unify and draw from the different wells of knowledge we have. It’s time to realize that our diversities should not separate us, but in this eclectic display of unity I want to show the true love of God and the true love of man,” says McClurkin.
