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

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!!!!

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.
