Following a tough week grieving the loss of his niece, Pastor Donnie McClurkin prepares for an enjoyable time celebrating his birthday with his teenaged son, Matthew
With such a hectic schedule, Donnie McClurkin admits it’s not easy to spend a whole lot of time with his son Matthew.
But today, as the Grammy, Dove and Stellar Award winner celebrates his 56thbirthday, he’s making it a point to hang out with his mini-me.
“Well, it’s my birthday today and I’m celebrating with my son Matthew,” said the Perfecting Faith Church pastor in an Instagram video. “He’s out here with me. He’s been here for a couple of days and it’s a great start.”
McClurkin, who made a stop in Rochester, NY Saturday and Philadelphia, PA Sunday as part of his 5o-city Festival of Praise tour, could use some downtime and enjoyment.
Coming off a hard week, being tasked with eulogizing his 13-year-old niece Trinity, who died following a seizure in her sleep, the syndicated radio show host and Billboard chart-topper is ready for a good time.
“Let the celebration begin,” he said with a wide grin, beaming over his plans with Matthew.
McClurkin, who is also an adoptive father to one daughter, Michelle, first opened up in 2012 about making a concerted effort to be present in Matthew’s life—something his own father, Donald McClurkin, Sr., now deceased, did not do for him.
