||Andrea McClurkin Mellini
It was at the young age of 14 that God developed the ministry of music in Andrea McClurkin-Mellini. To date, Andrea is best known for providing background vocals for her GRAMMY Award winning brother, Pastor Donnie McClurkin and other gospel greats. Most recently Andrea worked with her brother and 4 other sisters on a family CD aptly titled "The McClurkin Project" where she wrote the award-winning title song, "We Praise You".
In 2008, Andrea founded LoveSong Ministries. This company represents her solo recording artist career as well as her ministry in the Word of God. LoveSong Ministries has given Andrea a platform to officially share her gifts with the world via song or Biblical teaching in Praise and Worship Theory. Andrea also faithfully serves as an Elder in Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY where the Senior and Founding Pastor is Donnie McClurkin.
Andrea is currently preparing for the release of her solo CD debut which will truly show the measure of the gift of music which God has deposited in her. Recently she debuted one of her self-written singles on TBN's Praise the Lord, entitled "God is good".
In early 2011, Andrea celebrated 22 years of marriage to the love of her life, Pastor Louis Mellini. Andrea and Louis live in Suffolk County, NY where they are raising their three children, Brittany, Louis and Christopher. Andrea lives by this statement: “My relationship with Jesus defines and sustains me while my relationship with my family completes me and keeps me grounded.”
