In the recent CALLED Magazine cover story www.calledmagazine.com Donnie and Andrea opens up about life, music and ministry.

“I am overwhelmed and completely humbled by how well the single is doing! I told the Lord from the onset of the project, to take this music where he wants it to go; He has proven faithful and is answering my prayer. I pray it continues to gain the momentum that he orchestrates and prescribes,” says McClurkin-Mellini.
