Losing parents is difficult at any age. This especially rings true for award-winning gospel singer Pastor Donnie
McClurkin after both his parents died approximately 10 months apart. But he is finding comfort in the arms of
Jesus and through gospel music.
On a recent airing of TBN’s Praise the Lord, host McClurkin opened up about a very private moment of
distress, when he was all alone, bawling over his struggle to move forward without the physical presence of the
mother and father he deeply loves.
“I had a pity party a week ago, I mean just a 54-year-old pity party,” he said, while interviewing Grammy-
nominated solo artist Erica Campbell. “You ain’t never seen a man sit down and want mama and daddy at the
same time, and have to deal with a sense of loss, and then rest back on your bed and imagine yourself resting
in His arms and just saying ‘This will do. This will do.’”
