Pastor Donnie McClurkin chats to Move! about his ministry, life and music.

Music and life

What does it mean to you to be called a psalmist?

Nothing. It’s something I’ve done my whole life so there’s no thought process behind it. It’s just who I am. It’s what I’ve always been. It’s what I do because of who I am.

You started singing in church with your aunt...

My passion for music came from my mom being into music. She trained us because in our household, you had to sing. She would put us around thepiano and teach us how to sing threepart harmonies when we were four or five years old.

Tell us about stumbling into success.

By obeying Him, I stumbled into every bit of success. And it’s the craziest thing. For example, God telling you to be in a certain place and you go and sit there for three hours and nothing happens. And then all of a sudden, BAM! You run into destiny at the end of a three-hour-long sitting.
