Donnie McClurkin announces engagement to Nicole C Mullen

Donnie McClurkin was the musical guest on
TBN’s long-running “Praise the Lord” ministry
show Thursday night where it was revealed that
he and Nicole C. Mullen are getting married.
Matt Crouch and his wife, Laurie, were joined on
the show by guests A.R. Bernard and McClurkin
where the former revealed that he would be giving
McClurkin marriage counseling in the near future.
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 getting 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 was going to
make the 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.
“Well praise God,” McClurkin responded.
“Honestly, the only thing in my life that is missing
is marriage. The only thing that is missing in my
life that can cause real family, is marriage.
Financially, I’m there. Spiritually, I’m almost
there. Emotionally, I’m getting it together. But the
only thing that’s missing out of everything that
I’m doing locally, cross country and globally is
that aspect that makes family, family — is that
wife that would make man whole, that element
that brings favor to man.”
The pastor went on to quote Proverbs 18:22. The
verse says “he who finds a wife finds a good
thing, and obtains favor from the Lord.” And that
is what McClurkin says he’s looking forward to in
this season of his life.
“I have a lot of great things, but I don’t have a
good thing, and there’s favor that can only come
through marriage to a man,” he continued.
The New York-based minster talked about
spending his nights watching Cartoon Network
until 2 a.m. and confessed that he has come to
realize the missing part of his existence is to
have a help mate.
“To have someone that I can love. I’m not saying
to love me, ’cause there’s a lot of people that
love me. I want someone that I can love, heal and
comfort, protect and secure. That’s what I want,”
he said.
Bernard agreed that a wife is the accountability
partner that God gives to men to help them in the
maturation process. The show then progressed to
become an on the spot premarital counseling
session for the Grammy Award-winner.
Twenty-three minutes into the program, Crouch
asked McClurkin to name his future bride.
McClurkin then described how God brought him
and Mullen together on an flight to Africa in
December 2015.
McClurkin said that even though they’ve known
each other for 15 years, the first time they really
had a chance to talk to each other was when they
were seated next to each other on a flight to the
Ivory Coast, during which they spoke for eight
Both singers have been open about their love
lives in the past. Mullen was previously married
to CCM singer-songwriter David Mullen, before
they announced their divorce in 2014.
While McClurkin has never been married, the
single father has been open about his struggles
with his feelings of loneliness.
