Gospel artist Donnie McClurkin led a massive worship celebration in New York this weekend designed to unite people of all denominations.

The tenth annual New York Call drew thousands to the city.

“Jesus made the statement,” McClurkin began. “He said the house that is divided against its own self won’t be able to stand.”

“We have gained the commerciality of religion, but we have lost the power and the zeal,” McClurkin said. “And we don’t fellowship. It is quite often that you will find that pastors really don’t fellowship unless they are trying to do something political.”

This year’s conference comes on the heels of some unexpected political

controversy for the gospel singer.

Just three weeks ago, the Washington, D.C. mayor’s office withdrew its invitation to McClurkin to perform at a concert honoring the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream Speech.”

“I was a very good and personal friend with Corretta Scott King for years,” McClurkin said.
