Donnie

The smooth style of modern day soul singer Donnie is comparable to such other similar sounding artists as Macy Gray, Jill Scott, Seal, and Maxwell. Born in Lexington, Kentucky during the mid '70s, Donnie was raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and came from a very religious family (both of his parents were ministers). Singing for a choir at an early age, Donnie soon expanded his musical horizons, as he became influenced equally by such gospel artists as Walter Hawkins and Mahalia Jackson plus such soul/R n' B masters as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Aretha Franklin. By the early 21st century, Donnie was signed to the Giant Step label, and issuing such singles and EP's as Holiday, Masterplan, Do You Know?, Excerpts from the Colored Section, and Our New National Anthem. The singer's anticipated full-length debut, the Colored Section, was released in November 2002 and eventually picked up for release by Motown. The Daily News, an even more ambitious album, followed for Soul Thought in 2007. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

I love this entire CD. I remember first hearing him on a BET commercial years ago. He did not disappoint.

Hey svwill3 ask Donnie when he's gonna get us fans some new music I so looking forward to new material. I still listen to the old stuff though, lol.
He belongs to my church the House Of God ( Marvin Gaye , 7 Arelus, Bob Womack and Jermaine Stewart and Lil Shon Willis to name a few artist that this church has been blessed with) I know him personally and his spirits is just as beautiful as his musical artistry.

What a voice!!!
Count me in cause I'm a DONNIE FAN! Love his vibe!

HI had never heard of him he does remind you of D.. Hathaway i thank you pandora
I really like his voice and I have never heard of Donnie reminds me of Donnie Hathoway and Stevie
Around the same time his first album came out, I had been in Coconuts (remember that? lol) looking for something and extra to get into. I happened to see the name and immediately had to know who this brotha was, of course, due to his namesake. So, I bought the CD (yes, I said CD-lol) and immediately felt a jolt go up my spine. That power in the voice immediately reminded me of Donny Hathaway, which nearly brought me to tears. This man is magnificent! ! ! ! I so wish that all of our american siste

Donnie is an Exceptionall y Gifted artist...Yes , he is the truth! His music is real, soulful and classic. He has the sounds of Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield and Kindred Family Soul all in one, with a slight tough of Bilal, De'Angelo and Carl Thomas. Donnie please release a NEW album soon...you have many fans, the world could use some new ballads. Peace!!!!
rossineal, it's called Playground. Not sure how new it is though, probably from the last year.

I agree with you lesleewilbur n 5 , Donnie and Rahsaan Patterson, wow! These two need to be in concert together.
rossineal
erupert6, what's the new song Donnie has out
I remember when The Colored Section came out, I got the EP, the album AND the Motown re-release because it was so good. He does have a new song out, in case you're wondering.
lesleewilbur n 5
Donnie and Rahsaan Patterson - Nuff said!
rossineal
I really like this young man's voice. Everytime I hear one of his songs on Pandora I think it's Jonathan Butler. I will be following Donnie's music from now on out.
So soulful and honest lyrically! Donnie is brilliant!
rosemaryriv
Ooooh, yes, thank you Pandora...I am wondering how I didn't know him before now!
Thank you Pandora for exposing me to yet another great artist!
Thank you Pandora

Donnie doesn't get all the credit he deserves, he is a wonderful singer and I love your lyrics and music.
He is so under rated. I applaud Pandora so much for showcasing his talent.
Donnie is one of the best R&B artists out there today! Got both releases. This brother is so underrated.

Blessed Donnie...God Given Gifts!
Donnie is great live! I remember seeing him in like 2000 in Atlanta in a little place that used to be called Yin Yang. Wow! You MUST see him live.

Huge fan of Donnie's, had the opportunity to see him at a free outdoor concert in Philly a few years back and I keep his "The Colored Section" in heavy rotation on the IPOD.
"Rocketship" is my absolute favorite of favorites!! Phenomenal singer, I wish more people knew about him!!
sistatea

Love his song Cloud 9!!!! OMG!
Saw him in concert @ the Apache in Atlanta recently...A M A Z I N G show! It was truly a spiritual experience. People have been sleeping on Donnie for years. I can't get thru my day without him.
And here I thought that I was the only one who is "left handed in my right mind" ;-)
