McClurkin was born and raised in Amityville, New York. When he was eight years old, his two-year-old brother was hit and killed by a speeding driver.
A friendship with a Warner Alliance executive resulted in his signing to the label for his 1996 self-titled LP, with producers Mark Kibble of Take 6, Cedric and Victor Caldwell plus Andraé Crouch. The disc, which featured the perennially popular "Stand," went gold shortly after being publicly lauded by Oprah Winfrey. At the 48th annual Grammy Awards, he won in the category Traditional Soul Gospel Album, for "Psalms, Hymns & Spiritual Songs". McClurkin is best known for his hit songs “Stand” and “We Fall Down” which are played in heavy rotation on both Gospel and Urban radio. His three solo albums have topped the Billboard charts.
