Donny Hathaway

Donny Hathaway(1945年10月1日-1979年1月13日)是一位非裔美国灵魂乐大大师,他最著名的是和Roberta Flack的合作演唱。Donny Hathaway出生在芝加哥,在圣路易斯长大。

在1964年凭借弹钢琴赢取了Howard大学的艺术类奖学金,并在三年后离开了大学。

他后来开始写歌、伴奏,并当过The Staple Singers, Jerry Butler and Aretha Franklin制作人。他的第一首单曲是和June Conquest一起合作的“I Thank You Baby”,接下来是较有影响力的(尽管不是很大)“The Ghetto, Pt. 1”,他的首张LP《Everything Is Everything》反响一般,他的第二张同名专辑与接下来与Roberta Flack对唱的专辑都受到了好评。他接下来也出了一些歌曲,但因为情绪不好的原因,出歌速度在70年代中期渐渐慢了下来.

在70年代末他重新和 Roberta Flack合作了一首单曲《The Closer I Get to You》,之后更多的作品都是以对唱的方式出现,但Hathaway在1979年却意外的从纽约城旅馆15层楼高他的房间跳楼自杀。

Donny Hathaway的Donny Hathaway‘s Live专辑对很多的艺人都产生了影响,包括India Arie和Stevie Ray Vaughan,这张短短的现场专辑还包括了著名的R&B大师Willie Weeks(贝斯吉它)和Cornell Dupree(吉它)。

Donny Hathaway (October 1, 1945 January 13, 1979) was an African-American soul musician best known for his duets with Roberta Flack. Born in Chicago, he grew up in St. Louis and played piano, earning a fine arts scholarship to Howard University in 1964. He was offered jobs in the music industry before graduating, and left school after only three years.

He worked as songwriter, session musician and producer for The Staple Singers, Jerry Butler and Aretha Franklin, as well as with Curtis Mayfield. His debut solo single was "I Thank You Baby", a duet with June Conquest, followed by the influential (though only a minor hit) "The Ghetto, Pt. 1". His debut LP was Everything Is Everything (1970), which was critically acclaimed. His second album, Donny Hathaway, was a major hit and was followed by an acclaimed album of duets with label mate Roberta Flack which included a hit version of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend" and the self penned "Where Is The Love". Hathaway also began working on soundtracks but his output would slow down in the mid 70s as depression set in. In the late 70s Hathaway renewed his collaboration with Flack spawning the hit "The Closer I Get to You" (1978). More recording was set to follow with the duo, but Hathaway was found dead in an apparent suicide in 1979. He was discovered on the sidewalk below the 15th floor window of his room in a New York City hotel.

Donny Hathaway's Donny Hathaway Live has been cited as an influence by numerous artists, including India Arie and Stevie Ray Vaughan. This short live album includes noted R&B musicians Willie Weeks (bass guitar) and Cornell Dupree (guitar).

Hathaway was considered an eccentric by many, and claimed himself to be a devotee of mid-20th century French classical composers. Several anecdotes about Hathaway are contained in Jerry Wexler's book Rhythm And The Blues. Hathaway also lives on with the latest generation of R&B and pop stars such as Brian McKnight, India.Arie, and Justin Timberlake, who have hailed him as a key influence.

Notably, on soul group The Whispers' 1980 self-titled album, the group paid homage with "A Song for Donny," written by fellow soul singer Carrie Lucas. The song was set to the melody of Hathaway's "This Christmas."

In 2005, Neo-soul singer songwriter guitarist, Raul Midon (Blue Note) worked with Hathaway's longtime producer Arif Mardin (known for collaborations with The Bee Gees, Norah Jones & Aretha Franklin) and created a tribute song to Hathaway called "Sittin' in the Middle."

Hathaway's daughter Lalah is an accomplished R&B/jazz singer. Another daughter, Kenya, was a backing singer on American Idol 2006.
