Donny Hathaway (1971)

Donny Hathaway is the eponymous second studio album by American soul artist Donny Hathaway, released on April 2, 1971 on Atco. The majority of songs featured on the collection were covers of pop, gospel and soul songs that were released around the same time. The most prominent of the covers were Hathaway's inspired rendition of Leon Russell's "A Song for You" and a gospel-inflected cover of Gladys Knight & the Pips' "Giving Up". This was the second of three studio albums Hathaway released during his lifetime before his suicide in 1979.


Suffered from crippling schizophrenia, which culminated in his suicide at the age of 33.


Attended Howard University, graduating with a degree in Music Theory.

Danny - This man was my idle. I loved his voice and the quality of music that he wrote. WBeing a fraternity brother, each year I did a concert in honor of him while in college in the late 70`s. He was truly a talented artist. What`s even greater is to hear him in the voice of his daughter. (4 years ago)

Claudia - Donny died when I was a toddler but I wish I could have been around to hear him sing. Even today I thoroughly enjoy his music. Some of the songs seems just as up to date as recent artists. He was truly amazing. (6 years ago)
