Best known for his sweet duets with Roberta Flack in the 1970s, Donny Hathaway was one of soul music's saddest stories. He was born in Chicago and began as a session musician for Aretha Franklin, Jerry Butler & The Staples Singers. His intensity & creativity were recognized from his first solo recording, but his career was cut short by suicide at a young age. Join host Tom Shaker as we celebrate the life and music of Donny Hathaway this week, starting at 7pm.
