Remembering Soulful Crooner Abraham McDonald: 02/17/1977-03/10/2018

Abraham McDonald


Many got to know him as the winner of Oprah's Karaoke challenge on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Others know him for his powerful voice and commanding presence that sang for the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama and his friend Niecy Nash. Still others got to appreciate his humble spirit and call him a friend.
On March 10, 2018 soulful crooner Abraham McDonald died suddenly at the age of 41. In his amazing life he achieved so much and touched music lovers and dreamers around the world.




His family released this statement to Conversations: "The McDonald Family and the music community around the world is saddened by the death of our prolific singer Abraham McDonald (aka Oprah's Crooner). Abraham touched the world through his lyrics,songs, smile and bigger than life personality. He was immensely loved by the world, and he truly loved God. Memorial services are being planned by his sister Breeze McDonald in the city of Los Angeles. Details will be released soon. For now let the world join hands and sing."

Since 2010 McDonald had been a frequent guest on Conversations LIVE with host Cyrus Webb, even sitting down with him in person in 2016 for their last interview together in Los Angeles. “Abraham was more than a regular guest,” says Webb. “He was someone I am glad to call a friend. He will definitely be missed,but I know his music will continue to touch the world.”
