Donnie McClurkin, “Duets” (RCA Inspiration)

Donnie McClurkin’s vocals continue to soar smoothly on his sixth studio album, “Duets.”

McClurkin, a three-time Grammy winner best known for the 2000 hit “We Fall Down,” collaborates with a strong supporting cast on this impressive piece of soul-pleasing work. The 10-track set features some of gospel’s top artists, including Marvin Sapp, Tye Tribbett, Israel Houghton and McClurkin’s cousin, John P. Kee. “Duets” even features Tina and Erica Campbell of Mary Mary on separate songs.

McClurkin offers inspirational messages of maintaining a winning attitude on the Tribbett-assisted “We Are Victorious,” learning how to appreciate others more on “All About the Love” and living a stress-free life on the standout track, “Let It Go,” featuring Dorinda Clark-Cole.

On “Come as You Are,” McClurkin, Sapp, Houghton and New Breed Africa sing about making a life-changing leap of faith. “My Past” is an eight-plus minute track on moving beyond mistakes and learning from them.

From mid to upbeat praise and worship tunes, McClurkin certainly hits the mark with this one.
