1230 AM WDBZ The Buzz would like to wish one of gospel music’s biggest names a very special Happy Birthday today. Think you can guess who it is?
It’s the one and only Donald Lawrence who’s celebrating his birthday on today – May 4th. As one of the greatest songwriters and producers that this world will ever experience, Donald and his troupe of vocalists – The Tri-City Singers and his newly reformed choir Donald Lawrence & Co., have given us gospel gems worth a lifetime of music. And that’s why today, we honor and celebrate our friend and brother by wishing him a big Happy Birthday shout out Cincinnati style! May God continue to bless you Donald Lawrence and may His favor to continue to rest over your life and everything your hands touch.
Now he’s being modest and won’t tell us how old he is today, but we’re pretty sure if you follow him on Twitter long enough or send him a few b’day wishes, he’ll let us know sooner or later. His talent is endless, his skill is unmatched and it all totally speaks for itself. What a wonderful gift from God Donald has become to the music we know and love as gospel.
Post your comments and birthday wishes for Donald Lawrence below in the comments section. Always active in some new business or musical endeavor, we hear he’s been on the road lately of course working his tail off and preparing for the new seasons of both BET’s Sunday Best and the How Sweet The Sound choir competition, but Donald still checks to see what his friends, family and fans in Cincinnati are up to. We want you to be able to join the celebration right along with us and tell us your favorite song written or produced by Donald Lawrence. Which of his or Tri-City’s hits will you be singing today?
We won’t keep you waiting any longer as we continue celebrating our friend, his accomplishments and the blessings God has bestowed upon his life and ministry. Instead, we’ll let you experience the musical maestro in action. Here’s a live Stellar Awards performance of “Never Seen The Righteous,” one of our favorite gospel throwback from the super-producer we know affectionately as D. Lawrence.
Who knew Donald could really dance?! Haha! We love you Donald Lawrence! Happy Birthday and once again, enjoy Cincinnati!
