*Earlier we reported on the engagement of Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton. Well, hold the presses ’cause we have another one! Gospel singers Donnie McClurkin and Nicole C. Mullen are also jumping the broom.
The news of the engagement was made this past Thursday night on the on TBN’s long-running “Praise the Lord” ministry show. Hosts Matt Crouch and his wife, Laurie, were joined on the show by guests Reverend Doctor A.R. Bernard and McClurkin where Bernard revealed that he would be giving McClurkin marriage counseling in the near future, according to Christian Post.
Rumors that 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.”
Bernard hinted at McClurkin’s engagement during a discussion about his new book, “What Women Want From Men.” Crouch then stood up and announced that the 56-year-old “We Fall Down” singer and Perfecting Faith Church pastor is, in fact, on course to get married.
“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!”
The audience erupted with praise as the camera zoomed in on a stunned McClurkin who was possibly not aware that Crouch would make that 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.
