“Some of us have forgotten that R&B music is to sooth the soul, not to abuse the mind and heart. It’s not hip-hop and it’s not rapp, but we seem to have lumped it in to those categories and that’s all wrong. R& B is for adults and mature minded individuals who don’t allow their adolescent emotions and behavior to hijack their brain, which is why Donald and his team take what they do and stand for so seriously. Quality material without the smoke and mirrors…”

Donald’s Weezie Productions has worked on several full length CD’s, single, and compilation dance projects and has produced and recorded several voice-over commercials for television and radio advertisers. They really do it all.
A tough job but the “doing it yourself if you want it done right” attitude everyone has at Weezie is important and Donald is giving everyone another option for good R&B music and production services.
After a success performance singing the title song for the off Broadway Show ‘The Mammy Project’ (written, performed & directed by Michelle Matlock), ‘Old Aunt Jemima Blues’, Donald along with Randy Wilson arranged a captivating song that fit her production perfectly. The show ran successfully for more than 4 years.
Recently Donald had the pleasure to perform at the Gran Piatto D’Oro in Harlem for a special Valentines Day dinner show where there was standing room only. The show was one of the best they’ve ever had. Donald was then invited back the following month to open for Sony recording artist Alyson Williams, where he brought the house to its feet while warming up the audience before she took the stage.
He also had the pleasure of being one of the performers on the Soulchoonz LIVE tour at SIP Lounge with other well known independent recording artist.
