"Was in a serious accident at 12:50am this morning...passed out while driving on the highway. Totaled the car...hospitalized, going through a myriad of tests.....But I'm alive!!!" Gospel Singer Donnie McClurkin wrote in a post to Facebook. 

"Lost consciousness driving...but two human angels followed my swerving car with their emergency blinkers onto stop traffic ....drove behind me until my car crashed into the middle concrete island. I remember none of it except those two angels pulling me out of the passengers side of the crumbled TOTALED car..airbags deployed...crushed metal and Fiberglas," he added. 

McClurkin mentioned he was left "somewhat mangled" with a "sprained wrist, hurt knee" and stitches. 

"Two angels saved my life! I owe them...I am still here by the grace of God!

Thank you, Lord...thank you!" he concluded. 

Doctors pushed the Christian artist to rest and recover, but the gospel singer had a different plan in mind. 

"I overrode doctors and sisters advice and flew to KENYA today for ministry Saturday @ TWO RIVERS. and home on this Sunday to celebrate life," he wrote. 'My new Christmas single "MY FAVORITE THINGS" has one more thing added to the list....LIFE!"

The recording artist stated that he is still "hurting and limping" but the most important part, he says, is that, "I'm STILL HERE!!!"
