*Donny Hathaway: The Ghetto* Incomparable Voice & Talent of Soul



Bring it home Donny.

According to Allison Keyes from NPR, Hathaway's solo recordings are "part of the foundation of American soul music" and have "influenced performers from R&B singer Alicia Keys to rapper Common to singer-guitarist George Benson". He was named the 49th greatest singer of all time in a 2010 list published by Rolling Stone.
Justin Timberlake called him "the best singer of all time." Raúl Midón said that Hathaway is "the strongest soul singer that ever existed" and compares his vocal technique to a classical vocalist. "When Donny sings any song, he owns it," Stevie Wonder was quoted by David Ritz as saying. Amy Winehouse called Hathaway her favorite artist of all time. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donny_Hathaway

1. Kick for Donny, huge talent who gave us much, but was lost far too soon.

2. Loved his duets with Roberta Flack.



Such a sad story though.

A few weeks ago someone posted a "favorite tv theme song" thread....how in the hell did I forget 'Maude'.
