AWARD WINNING GOSPEL SINGER DONNIE MCCLURKIN TAKES THE HIGH ROAD IN RESPONSE TO RECENT SCENE IN THE PREMIERE OF FOX SHOW EMPIRE

  There’s no explanation or understandable reason for the actions people take under the guise of entertainment.  When did the art of creative writing resort to penning scripts for shock value and controversy? During the premiere of FOX Television’s hit show, Empire, the writers targeted gospel artist Donnie McClurkin.   In a recent article in Hollywood Reporter, we learned that actor Sean Penn took legal action to defend his name and character THR: https://www.yahoo.com/tv/s/empire-lee-daniels-sued-sean-171344653.html .   There are several ways one can respond to this new form of bullying and the pastor, singer songwriter took to Twiiter to share his comments:   “It was brought to my attention via social media that my name was included in a “back-handed”  manner during  a scene in the FOX show, Empire. What might have been meant for evil, God uses for good! Despite the scripting used by @leedanielsent it has helped bring attention to the gospel of Jesus Christ that I sing and preach, an empowering moment! To my brothers and sisters, thank you for your support, encouragement & love! No negativity towards @leedanielsent let’s show the love of Jesus,” says McClurkin.   Let this experience be a reminder that as loving Christians we’re called to share the good news of Christ and be examples of God’s love on the earth.
