Day 5 of my Top 10 Albums
At number 6 is Donny Hathaway's 2nd studio Album Released on April 2nd 1971, "Donny Hathaway". To me, Donny Hathaway is one of the best male soul vocalists to have ever have graced our planet. He had a huge impact on artists such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklyn, Roberta Flack, Frank McComb and little old me. Just to name a few. The first time I heard Donny Hathaway sing "A Song For you" it brought tears to my eyes. He had the ability to sing the word "AND", and make you feel every emotion. His version of, 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' still moves me to this day. Then there's 'Giving Up'. Man o Man. What a song. Oh and 'She Is My Lady'.. On January 13 1979. Donny Hathaway left this earthly plane. Although he is gone, he left us/me so much music and his stunningly talented daughter Lalah Hathaway. If you aren't aware of his Music/Voice and Soul, sit down one night, with a nice glass of red, and get Your Donny Hathaway on. Be prepared to be moved.
