Gospel Music Stars Donnie McClurkin & Israel Houghton Announce Engagements & More Gospel Music News…UPDATE…


Hello World,

I’m a hopeless romantic so I’m happy to announce that two gospel music stars have found love! Donnie McClurkin, who also hosts “The Donnie McClurkin Show” announced on Thursday’s night broadcast of TBN’s “Praise the Lord” that he has fallen in love with Nicole C. Mullen! He initially joked that he was marrying Halle Berry, whose birthday is today actually, before revealing that he is engaged to Nicole! See the video below…UPDATE: It seems that the TBN host Matt Crouch assumed Donnie McClurkin had proposed to Nicole C. Mullen, but Donnie said in a Periscope broadcast today, Aug. 16, that while he is in love with Nicole, they are not engaged…hmmm…more will be revealed at a later date I’m sure…I didn’t see the whole TBN show, but I wonder if Donnie corrected the host’s statement later in the broadcast…

But they’re not the only singers in love and getting married! This weekend sospel music star Israel Houghton announced on Instagram he is engaged to “The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon, who is also a singer and actress…Look at that ring, and they’re in Paris…Swoon..

I have seen and felt the essence of Gods grace through the life, the kindness and the courage of this woman. I’ve seen her attacked, lied about, wrongfully accused, mocked, laughed at, and misunderstood. But, I’ve also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I’m learning from her example. She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves people. Even the ones that don’t love her back. I pray God give me that same grace in my life. I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… She has graciously granted my request… She said yes. Thanks Be To God. Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me.
