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.
“If you want to do it to get into the industry, don’t do it. If you want to do it because you feel like you’re a gospel singer, don’t,” McClurkin previously told The Christian Post. “It’s got to be something that God has ordained because although it looks good from the outside looking in and although we bless so many people around the world with our music, inside of this gospel music world it’s not easy.”
