It’s been five years since Donnie McClurkin, one of gospel music’s top male vocalists, has released a CD and – needless to say – his million plus fan base is excited to hear from him after the hiatus. The wait is over, and his new CD “We Are All One (Live In Detroit)” is set to hit retail bins across America tomorrow.

On the eclectic CD, Donnie shares the spotlight with some of his long-time friends in the gospel industry, pulling out all the musical stops when he teams up with CeCe Winans, Mary Mary, and Yolanda Adams on “When We Love;” and teaming with the incomparable Karen Clark-Sheard on the current single, “Wait On The Lord.” The single is also available now for download at all digital music stores.

The singer also uses this CD to showcase the extraordinary talents of his veteran background vocalists, Duawne Starling, Andrea Mellini and Sherry McGhee who are all working on their solo careers and featured on “Home Someday” and “All We Ask”.

The uniquely titled song, “Purple,” was written by Darin Atwater and features Baltimore’s Soulful Symphony. That song was presented to McClurkin in the eleventh hour, but the singer was so moved it had to be added to the project. “I think “Purple” is a wonderful praise and worship song, incorporating the various cultures of music, from the classical to rhythmic beats of the church making it one of the signature pieces on the CD,” says the Grammy winning artist.
If you lived in New York City you can can catch Donnie on Good Day New York, bright and early the morning of April 2 and he will be doing a in-store at J&R Music World, 23 Park Row 4 at noon on Friday, April 3 where he will be on hand to autograph copies of his CD.
