Even though he’s now a gospel music super star, Donnie McClurkin tells inquiring fans that his road to success was paved with challenges and disappointments.
The 56-year-old “We Fall Down” singer was asked on Twitter about the hardships he faced before reaching his veteran status in the industry.
“@donnieradio what has been the most challenging part in getting to where you are in your career today? #COGchat,” one person questioned McClurkin.
The singer responded by saying “the hardest thing in getting to where I am was finally believing what God said and thought about me regardless [of] my failures.”
The pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, New York, has been a leading voice in gospel music with a career that spans 20 years. Still, McClurkin has warned people who believe they can be the next platinum selling artist in gospel music world.
He previously admitted that it was a tough industry and cautioned people not to do it if they did not feel called by God.
