Kenya: American Gospel Artiste Survives Road Accident Ahead of Nairobi Concert - Photos

American gospel artiste Donnie McClurkin, who is set to perform in Nairobi on Saturday, has been hospitalized after surviving what termed as a "serious" car accident.

The 59-year-old Grammy Award winning singer shared a picture of himself in hospital in a Facebook post on Thursday saying that he passed out while driving.

"Was in a serious accident at 12:50am this morning... passed out while driving on the highway. Totaled the car... hospitalised, going through a myriad of tests... but I'm alive!!!" he explained.


In the post, the King of Urban Gospel added that he lost consciousness while driving but two human angels followed his swerving car with their emergency blinkers onto stop traffic and drove behind him until his car crashed into the middle concrete island.

He added that he could not remember anything else except those two angels pulling him out of the passenger's side of the crumbled totaled car. Airbags deployed... crushed metal and Fiberglas!!


"Somewhat mangled, stitches on left thumb, sprained wrist, hurt knee, but I'm still here! God and two angels saved my life! I owe them... I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord... thank you!." he wrote.

In his statement confirming that he will still perform in Nairobi on Saturday at Two Rivers Mall, the singer said that he knows that God has a purpose for him and it is going to be a powerful thing in Nairobi.

"I am truly thankful for those in Nairobi who are praying for me and my message to them is - come let us rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice for we have the victory. See you on Saturday.
