Pastor Donnie McClurkin plans to teach and empower up-and-coming musicians with his new record company Camdon music, and has enlisted the help of Andrea McClurkin Mellini and Nancey Jackson to ensure off-the- charts success.

McClurkin,54, may pastor Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, N.Y., but he is also a distinguished singer in the gospel music industry who has received Grammy, Dove, Stellar and NAACP awards. Now, he has decided to provide a platform for other singers by creating the brand-new Camdon music group using the wisdom he has gained throughout his almost 20-year career.

“We’re looking for great talent across the country and even out of the country. We’re going to give them a platform that won’t be as consuming as record companies of yesterday, whereas you had to sign for a long period of time and it took away all of your rights,” McClurkin told The Christian Post. “I want to give that to the Gospel community, what I wanted and didn’t get, and that’s a platform that will teach and empower the artist.”

Camdon music, a play on McClurkin’s first and last names, “Mac” and “Don,” is a new record label not wasting any time in releasing new artists. Andrea McClurkin Mellini is not only Donnie’s sister, but a new artist on his label who is stepping into the spotlight after serving as a veteran background singer for her brother.
