Donnie McClurkin Had Surgery to Remove Precancerous Scar Tissue (VIDEO)

After canceling a performance at The Festival of Praise in Tuscaloosa, Alabama in April, gospel superstar Donnie McClurkin is addressing reports concerning his health, revealing that he underwent vocal cord surgery while stressing he does not have cancer.

The minister took to Facebook Live to update fans and followers on the state of his health, saying a “situation with my vocal cords” caused him to undergo surgery to remove precancerous tissue from the area.

“I want to take away the drama. It is not throat cancer…it is precancerous scar tissue, the beginning stages. They want to make sure that it’s not cancerous, so we want to do tests. So, keep me in your prayers.”
