Donnie

So you say music has lost its "uumph" and they don't make it like they used to? Think again.

Donnie has a voice reminiscent of Donny Hathaway, a message reminiscent of Marvin Gaye, an originality reminiscent of Stevie Wonder. All with a 2007 and Donnie spin and freshness.

And in an age of digitized voices and ghettofied lyrics, it's refreshing to have a real voice and live music back in r&b. And songs that mean something other than giving dance move instructions.

I went to Donnie's show in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend and was blown away by him and his band. And if you get his newest CD, The Daily News, or his debut, The Colored Section, I know you'll be blown away too.

Check out Donnie's MySpace, and hey, while you're online, log onto LOGO to get his latest video moving up The Click List chart (If I Were You, left side, 6th from top, and don't worry about leaving your info before submitting your vote).

Happy listening.

Fred: This is Craig Bowers from Donnie's label (based in Los Angeles) SoulThought Entertainment.

I just wanted to stop by and thank-you for the "Donnie love" and for helping to spread the word about his new album, "The Daily News".

Be easy.

i loved his first album and wondered what happened to him. i'm more impressed with his attitude than his talent (which is hard to do - dude can sang). the new album will be copped, post haste.
