Donnie McClurkin Rembers His Mother One Year Later: ‘I Miss Her Terribly’ 

During Stellar Awards weekend, as he dealt with the one-year anniversary of his mother Frances McClurkin’s passing, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, 54, was in the hospital for undisclosed reasons, though his condition mandated an overnight stay.

Via a social cam message, the award-winning singer said, “I love my mother and I miss her terribly,” while adding that he was working to keep the conversation and atmosphere light-hearted as not to create any additional stress for his family and friends.

The "We Fall Down" singer's mother succumbed about a week after suffering a massive coronary heart attack on January 13, 2013 in Bethpage, NY, while he was at the Stellar Awards.

This year, the preacher, who is very active on social networking sites, did his best to remain upbeat for his followers, despite his heaviness and unforeseen health issues.

In his double video messages (Video One and Video Two) he also devote special time to slamming false health reports.

“People have been flooding the social network and media with news that Donnie McClurkin fell out. I ain’t fell out nothin’!” he said, denying rumors that he had fainted, been transported by ambulance to the ER, and was in bad shape.

Attempting to bring some levity to the situation, McClurkin panned the camera over to show off two of his Caucasian friends and said, “Y’all know if I got white people around me, then I’m doing good. ‘Cause you know if you got white people around you, you doing really good.”

He added, “So let the news be spread that Donnie McClurkin is doing well. I’m just in the hospital doing some tests and I got white people with me.”

On a serious note, he solicited prayer.
