Hello Everyone, Happy Holidays! I hope you are all taking time to enjoy this holiday season. I have so many things to be grateful for and am taking time to stop and reflect on them this season. I am also very blessed to be surrounded with family and friends throughout the year. This year has been a year of personal and professional success, change and an opportunity to try new things. It's always been a dream of mine to cut an album (do they even call them album's anymore?) and I got to fulfill that dream this past year. I accomplished this by picking some great cover songs that I've always wanted to sing, wrangled the best musicians I could find and, in the end, learned A LOT about the making of an album. It was a fantastic journey! My debut album "LISA DONAHEY: SHE'S GOT IT COVERED" will be available the week of December 15. For whatever mood you're in, I think you will enjoy it as I cover many great musical styles. It includes everything from jazz to country, pop to r&b and I think you'll like it. You will be able to purchase the CD from me during December and I will also have digital download cards for those who would rather have digital files versus an actual CD. On December 25, it will be available through CDBaby.com. Visit the BUY link on my website to get yours today. In mid-January, it will become available on iTune. I will send a reminder when that distribution channels is live. Thanks to everyone for your on-going support! Now for the part where you can play an active role and make a lot of children in need very happy....I will be performing a Charity Concert & CD Launch event in January 2009 and sharing the stage with 11 of the finest musicians in town! There's no better way to celebrate with friends and family then a party with live music, laughs and libations! We will perform songs from my album, as well as tunes that span the past 50 years covering all styles from country to jazz, 80's to disco, theatre to rock!
