Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin has performed a new song all about his struggle with depression and suicide. Presenter Adrienne bailon asked Donnie what inspired him to write this song, entitled ‘I Need You.’

“The song really came from a series of depressions I was going through. I know it’s not you know, appropriate to say,” McClurkin said. “I was going through a series of depressions. My mother, my father, my cousins, my aunts, my niece all died in two years. My mom and dad died ten years, ten months a part. And it left me at the point of really… thinking, hoping to die next, suicidal.”
