Donny Hathaway Anthology Box Set Releases November 12th
The life and music of Donny Hathaway is celebrated in Never My Love, The Anthology available in stores nationwide on November 12th. Included in the set are 3 gospel flavored tracks, namely Thank You Master (For My Soul), Lord Help Me and Come Ye Disconsolate, a duet from Hathaway’s successful music partnership with Roberta Flack.
Hathaway’s gospel roots run deep as his first musical experiences evolved from being a part of the church choir under the watchful eye of his grandmother in St. Louis. Hathaway continued a close affiliation with gospel music, producing and writing for Albertina Walker and the Caravans. Hathaway’s impact on gospel music is felt and heard in the varied covers of his music by Keith Pringle, Marvin Sapp, Darius Brooks, Richard Smallwood and Ted & Sheri. His daughter, Lalah continues to wow audiences with recent appearances on Donald Lawrence’s chart topping Best For Last CD.
