That is what King was all about.”At least one group has come out in defense of Mc Clurkin.
Mc Clurkin has made controversial statements in the past about being "delivered from the sin of homosexuality" by God. Don't tell me that I stand up and I say vile words against the gay community because I don't. I tell you that God delivered me from homosexuality."In July,gay advocacy group Truth Wins Out released video footage allegedly shot undercover at the Christian-affiliated Minnesota clinic owned by Michele Bachmann and her husband, and claimed to find evidence of conversion therapy being performed on the premises.Mc Clurkin, who believes God absolved him from the "curse" of homosexuality, was set to perform Saturday at the “Reflections on Peace: From Gandhi to King” concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of King's March on Washington, The Washington Post noted. He posted a seven-minute video to Socialcam claiming he had been uninvited from the civil rights event because of "politics." He pinned the blame on the mayor, the Arts and Humanities Commission and "a few protestors." The Washington Post reported Monday that Mayor Vincent C.Gray (D)requested Mc Clurkin not attend after activists challenged the singer's appearance.Gray said he didn't want any "potential controversy" to arise at an event focused on harmony and peace.“The Arts and Humanities Commission and Donnie Mc Clurkin’s management decided that it would be best for him to withdraw because the purpose of the event is to bring people together,” Doxie Mc Coy, a spokeswoman for Gray, told the Post.“Mayor Gray said the purpose of the event is to promote peace and harmony.In Mc Clurkin’s eyes, the opportunity to host such an eve trumps being nervous or excited. It’s more of an honor because nobody is a greater support of the Gospel music industry than I am,” the singer told Essence. I want to push what’s happening in the music industry to make Gospel music greater than it was before. “But to host and honor Yolanda — who is such a concentrated focus, hard worker — is an honor.
So by hosting, I get a chance to honor Yolanda.” In giving praise to Adams, Mc Clurkin took a humorous turn while elaborating on how long he’s known the “Open My Heart” vocalist. Everything she does, she does with everything that’s in her.
“Yolanda and I have been friends for almost 30 years and I tried to date her once. I’m just very happy to take this time to honor her and join different artists to do so,” continued Mc Clurkin, who provided a glimpse of what fans can expect from the tribute.
He has also claimed he was "turned" gay because of childhood molestation and reversed it when he turned to religion.
"Don't call me a bigot or anti-gay, when I have been touched by the same feelings," he said.
*Donnie Mc Clurkin’s appreciation for Yolanda Adams goes back a long ways.
So it’s only fitting the gospel entertainer be among those honoring his fellow “Sunday Best” judge as host of the Yolanda Adams Gospel Tribute at the upcoming Essence festival. Either her or Halle Berry, one of the two [LAUGHS].
