Oprah Winfrey & Iyanla Vanzant RAVE Over Donnie McClurkin’s ‘Great is Your Mercy’

By EEW Magazine News Staff

Music has power, especially good old gospel music. Apparently Ms. Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant know that full well. The two had an enthusiastic discussion about Donnie McClurkin’s “Great Is Your Mercy” in a preview clip for Super Soul Sunday on OWN. Oprah said, “I think it brought me to my knees.”

The well-known hit single from the “Donnie McClurkin: Live in London” project that debuted in August 2000, is more than a decade old. Yet, it still has the ability to stir the soul. “I don’t go anywhere without my music. Music ministers to me and there’s some I play over and over,” said Iyanla Vanzant, host of OWN’s newest show, “Iyanla Fix My Life,” which premieres in two parts this weekend, Sep. 15-16.

When Iyanla mentioned Great Is Your Mercy, a song she also sent to Oprah, the OWN Network CEO joined Iyanla in raving about it.

“Download that thing right now!” Oprah said. “I was listening to that thing in Maui. I think it brought me to my knees…Took me down!”

Iyanla chimed in, “Take me down, take me down, take me down Lord, take me down!”

Oprah threw her head back, laughing.

“I got to go down. One knee, two knee, face in the dirt,” Iyanla continued gushing over the impact of the song. It is clear that the two ladies are true fans of the melody.

Among her favorites, Iyanla Vanzant also mentioned Yolanda Adams, though she didn't specify a song, Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” and India Arie’s “Get It Together. 

Watch the clip below.

Watch Donnie McClurkin's live performance of Great is Your Mercy.

The song is phenomenal indeed.

I have "Great Is Your Mercy" in my arsenal of Gospel Heavy-Hitters! I love "Create In Me A Clean Heart" by Donnie as well! I got some Bishop McClendon, Judith McAllister, the Clark Sisters, Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin, Bishop Morton, Bishop Potter, Byron Cage, Donald Lawrence, Hezekiah Walker, John P. Kee, Marvin Sapp, Kierra Sheard, Israel Haughton.... I have soooo many faves by them that can bring me to my knees in one note! Gospel is unlike any other genre.... It's just about all I listen to! (And I'm only 21 years old...)
