Donnie McClurkin is a Grammy Award winning American gospel music singer and minister. In 2009 he released a successful live album, We All Are One (Live in Detroit), which topped Billboard charts across various musical genres. McClurkin told Christian Music Today that this is his favorite track from the set. He explained why: "The song 'We All Are One' gives me the opportunity to use my music to bring out the truth - simply that we were never intended to be classified by denominations. That was the greatest accomplishment of Satan: divide the body of Christ. Jesus stated that a 'house divided against itself cannot stand.' Paul asked the question in 1 Corinthians 2: 'Is Christ divided?' He said some were saying that they were of Paul and others were saying they were of Apollos, some of Cephas, others of Christ. We're much worse today.
Baptist, Methodist, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Anglican, Catholic, Roman Catholic, Assemblies of God, Church of God, Church of God in Christ, Wesleyan - and the list is hardly over with these. It's chaotic. But this song allows me to reiterate what Jesus declared and wants even in today's church: unity. The song ends with adult voices transforming into the voices of children - driving home the point that unless we become as innocent as children in our worship and beliefs, we won't see heaven or God."
