Author Reveals Life Of Soul Star Donny Hathaway

Very little has been written about the life and work of Donny Hathaway. But before the Chicago-born singer, songwriter, producer and arranger took his own life in 1979 at the age of 33, he became a massive influence on some of the biggest stars of the time, and his body of work has served as an inspiration to many who came after him. Now, author Emily Lordi’s new book Donny Hathaway Live shines fresh light on this massive talent.
