How To Book DONALD LAWRENCE For Your Event!
Donald Lawrence and Company
may be available for your next special event!
Donald Lawrence is a man with destiny on his mind. In a world already reeling from the mayhem of everyday life, Donald Lawrence & Company, was first conceived as a "spiritual vitamin" to reenergize a church teetering on the precipice of spiritual despair and desolation. As the catastrophes of September 11, 2001 unfolded, that need was heightened immeasurably.
"I've always done my best work when I follow what my heart is saying to me, and write and record what I'm feeling," Donald comments.
The pulsating, rock-steady, dance-floor-ready sound is classic Donald Lawrence & Company, with Donald in his signature, fluid modern gospel/R&B voice, atop the singers' smooth-as-silk, contemporary-but-timeless take on vintage choral gospel.
"I want everybody to know that even when things are looking up, and starting to change for the better, it's not all that God has in store for you. In fact, compared to the wondrous things He still has to lay on the table before us, we haven't seen anything yet."
Donald Lawrence – songwriter, producer, singer and director-extraordinaire whom Billboard magazine has hailed as a "timeless…tunesmith, lyricist and master of the mix," was a child born with a love for music, who grew up to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the prestigious Cincinnati Conservatory. Anticipating a career in musical theater, his plans were abruptly changed a year after his graduation when pop/R&B superstar
Stephanie Mills the friend of a friend of Donald's met the rising young prodigy and quickly hired him to be her musical director.
By the mid-'90s Donald Lawrence had spent almost 10 years working and touring with the multi-platinum-seller
Mills, and had produced two of her albums, in 1992 and 1994. Along the way he had also established himself as one of gospel music's most
esteemed producers, with a sterling resume comprising work with gospel/R&B/pop superstar
Kirk Franklin, hit-maker
Peabo Bryson, and
the late gospel giants,
Daryl Coley and Thomas Whitfield. Other entries on Donald's dazzlingly diverse list of credits include writing and directing several highly successful gospel musicals and plays, and serving as vocal coach for '90s chart royalty,
With hopes for a future that includes movies, musical theater and TV as well, Donald Lawrence speaks like a man still moving into his own ever-evolving destiny.
"Life is a gift, and God didn't bless us with this gift to live our entire lives in sadness," he concludes. "Sadness will pass, and then it's time to get up, dry your eyes, re-boot and grab back your life. And when you do, by all means, live it ... to the fullest."
