Cruise host Kirk Whalum, who was instrumental in securing McClurkin for the cruise, calls Donnie “one of the most devoted and talented performers I have ever seen and heard, regardless of the genre.  It will be fun slotting Donnie into our shows.  Who knows where and when he will pop up and wow everyone?”
