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.

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.
