- Donnie McClurkin, 'Ex-Gay' Singer, Cut From MLK Concert Over 'Potential Controversy'
"Ex-gay" gospel singer Donnie McClurkin was cut from a Martin Luther King Jr. memorial concert Saturday because of the "potential controversy" it would cause.
McClurkin, 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.
On Saturday, things changed. 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."
