Donny Hathaway: more than we could ask for.

A short piece on one of my favorite artists of all time. He was an amazing vocalist, as well as an expert arranger. In fact, the majority of songs on his Greatest Hits compilation album were popularized by someone else in completely different forms (i.e. “Giving Up” and “A Song For You”). Featuring audio from a rare interview of Donny from the mid 1970s.

This originally aired on Vocalo.org WBEW 89.5fm
