Article in the Santa Clarita Valley Signal

I recently spoke with a reporter for the Santa Clarita Valley Signal. They put out an article covering the upcoming Christmas concert I’ll be performing in at Real Life Church December 14th and 15th.

From the Article:

“This production is filled with people at the top of their game…All the performers have such serving hearts,” Donnelly said. “They are humble professionals that want to give their best and want to be used to give a gift back to the community.”

Real Life Church’s annual Christmas concert will be held Dec. 14 and 15 at 7 p.m. at the church on 23841 Newhall Ranch Road.

South Coast Christian Assembly Christmas Concert

I really had no idea I would enjoy doing live concerts as much as I do. It’s kind of a new thing for me to do solo concerts and I’m really liking it. There’s a certain energy like none other. Here’s a clip of “Joy to the World/Go Tell it” from the Christmas concert I put on for South Coast Christian Assembly in San Juan Capistrano. It’s a rough and raw clip, but it’ll give you an idea of how much fun we had.

Clinton Fundraiser with Barbara Streisand

clintons_mdvOne of my most cherished memories was being hired to sing in a group to back up Barbara Streisand as part of a fundraiser for President Clinton. Barbara Streisand was very down to earth at the rehearsals and President Clinton was incredibly kind, greeting us with hugs and even a box of chocolates for each of us with a sticker of the presidential seal on it. (Which I’m pretty sure is the only box of chocolates given to me that I haven’t torn into and eaten!) Heading home from the event I received a text from a friend: “Did I just see you hug the president of the United States on the news right now????” So surreal to text back “Yes!”
