Video: Donnie McClurkin Talks Fatherhood w/ Kirk Franklin and “The King’s Men” Perform
Check out the video below of Donnie McClurkin and Kirk Franklin addressing their fatherhood journeys. The standout point of the conversation between the two famed Christian leaders is McClurkin declaring to become a better father. He says that he’s now in the process of strengthening the relationship he has with his son, Matthew, now 12.
As many know, back in 2000 McClurkin fathered a son out of wedlock. McClurkin admits that he is good at “providing” material things for his son, however, he hasn’t been “there” for him as much as he should. McClurkin’s call-to-action was when he realized that he wanted to end the chain of neglect that began with his own father.
The fatherhood discussion begins around the 20:00 mark, but make sure you watch the entire video to see performances from “The King’s Men”, Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Israel Houghton and Donnie McClurkin. Also, find out why Kirk doesn’t like for them to be called the “Kings of Gospel”. If you haven’t got your tickets for the tour yet, purchase them now from www.livenation.com!
