Donnie McClurkin wowed audience members at the “Gospel Goes to Hollywood” pre-Oscar event on Friday, February 28th when he spontaneously called up R&B artist Kelly Price to sing.
Kelly Price and Donnie McClurkin ad-libbed to the new hit gospel song “Better,” originally performed by rising family group The Showers who were the musical guests for the event. The vocalists’ powerful impromptu duet during the pre-Oscar event came immediately after the family had delivered their own stunning rendition.
“Better” was released to iTunes on January 28 and peaked in the Top 30 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel Top 100 Chart. Written and produced by Deon Kipping, the song follows the group’s hit lead single ‘Praise Your Way Through’ which peaked in the Top 30 on the Mediabase Gospel Songs Chart with an accumulative listening audience of over 1 million ears.
The Showers’ self-titled debut album is slated for release later this year.
