Angels were definitely watching over Donnie McClurkin early this morning. The gospel singer took to Facebook to inform his followers that he was involved in a car accident after he passed out while driving at the wheel.
“Lost consciousness driving…but two human angels followed my swerving car with their emergency blinkers onto stop traffic…drove behind me until my car crashed into the middle concrete island. I remember none of it except those two angels pulling me out of the passengers side of the crumbled TOTALED car..airbags deployed…crushed metal and Fiberglas [sic]!!”
The minister is currently under hospital care, a little beat up, with stitches in his left thumb, a sprained wrist, and hurt knee, but he praises God that he made it through the mess in order to see a miracle.
In October, McClurkin took the stage with Cece Winans, Mary Mary, Gladys Knight and others to celebrate Aretha Franklin at the American Music Awards.
Donnie has three solo albums that have soared to the top of the Billboard charts, won two Grammy Awards, ten Stellar Awards, two Soul Train Awards, an NAACP Image Award and so much more! In addition to that, he has his own radio show, The Donnie McClurkin Show, where he combines encouragement, spiritual nourishment, and interviews with some of the biggest names in gospel music.
So happy he’s okay, and he’ll probably be back to singing “Total Praise” in no time.
TELL US: Do you think Donnie will write a song out of this experience?
