Praise Featured Video


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.’”
