With unforgettable hits like ‘We Fall Down,’ ‘Speak to My Heart,’ and ‘Stand,’ multiple Gold and Platinum records to his credit, and and a trophy case full of industry honors including 3 GRAMMYs, Donnie McClurkin is revered as one of the most successful Gospel artists in history.
However, while his professional achievements are plentiful, those wins – according to him – were not mirrored in his personal life.
Despite rocking headlines in 2018 for alleged ties to a gay cult, the 61-year-old has not bitten his tongue over the years about his reported deliverance from homosexuality – a stance he’s reiterated by vocalizing opposition to same-sex marriage and more.
Due to said view, McClurkin recently took to TV One’s ‘Uncensored’ to speak candidly about his own love life. There, he even asserted he would likely be alone forever despite a desire for love and family.
McClurkin was surprisingly honest and forthcoming while reflecting on his private life, namely his failures with romance – a circumstance he blamed on lack of experience.
“I didn’t know really what a woman wanted,” Donnie said before continuing, “I’ve messed up more than I’ve had good. My past relationships were a sprinkling of everything – men and women.”
Said disappointment has ultimately led the Gospel legend to decide to remain single for the rest of his life.
“When things get rough I go back into my safe place – my music and my ministry,” he stated before concluding, “Never having a long-term relationship in my life and never being married, I chalked that up. I will probably be alone for the rest of my life as far as a mate is concerned.”
