Donnie McClurkin allowed Praise the Lord ministry show host Matt Crouch to spill the beans that he is getting married!
While what he thought would be a typical musical guest appearance on “Praise the Lord,” Donnie found himself bewildered as host Matt Crouch announced he was soon to be married!
Also on the show was Pastor A. R. Bernard who revealed that he would be giving McClurkin and his bride to be, Nicole C. Mullen. During the show Bernard also hinted about McClurkin and Mullen’s engagement as they were engaged in a discussion about his new book, “What Women want From Men.” but I guess Crouch just could not keep it to himself, he jumped up and made the announcement.
“OK, are you ready for something? You want me to just drop something on ya?” Crouch asked the audience as he shouted, “Donnie McClurkin’s getting married! Come on!”
It was reported that rumors of McClurkin and Mullen were dating started circulating after the two attended this year’s Stellar Awards together. But the gospel singers never made an official announcement about their romance until Thursday’s episode of “Praise the Lord.”
The audience erupted with praise as the camera zoomed in on a stunned McClurkin who was possibly not aware that Crouch was going to make the announcement on an international television show. Laurie, afraid that her husband had spoken too soon, asked if they should consider editing the information out of the program but McClurkin then proceeded to explain his decision.
“Well praise God,” McClurkin responded. “Honestly, the only thing in my life that is missing is marriage. The only thing that is missing in my life that can cause real family, is marriage. Financially, I’m there. Spiritually, I’m almost there. Emotionally, I’m getting it together. But the only thing that’s missing out of everything that I’m doing locally, cross country and globally is that aspect that makes family, family — is that wife that would make man whole, that element that brings favor to man.”
The pastor went on to quote Proverbs 18:22. The verse says “he who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” And that is what McClurkin says he’s looking forward to in this season of his life.
“I have a lot of great things, but I don’t have a good thing, and there’s favor that can only come through marriage to a man,” he continued.
