Bio

Ever since his debut in 2008 as a rising star in Neo Soul Inspirational music with his inspiration album “New Moments New Choice” Donnell Isaac (born Donnell Isaac Charlton), has been creating waves in the industry.

Music isn’t the only thing that Donnell is talented in, as he has made appearances in front of the camera on TV with “Law and Order” and in the movie “My Brother”.

The refreshing and soul touching music of Donnell Isaac was gathering momentum, and he soon caught the attention of record label Executive Bernie McLean. He signed him up to a distribution deal with Indie Charts/ Kingdom Records in 2010, which is the home of Shekinah Glory.

After that the career of Donnie C, now known as Donnell Isaac has grown by leaps and bounds. He had his first major hit with “Shelter from The Storm”, which dominated the radio BDS 100’s charts for more than 16 weeks.

His follow up single was a remake of ‘I Won’t Complain’ from the late Rev Paul Jones, which landed him his first win in the 2014 Chosen Voice Awards Tampa FL, as the ‘Best New Artist’. With such phenomenal success early on in his career, it is no wonder that the career of Donnell Isaac has come such a long way in such a short time period.
How it all began

He was first exposed to music when he was singing in the St. Paul Pentecostal Holiness Church Choir at the age of 9 in Portsmouth Virginia. His gift was nurtured in its infancy by his great aunt, Fairfield Jackson, who played a major role in developing his passion for music and singing. Donnell also sang in his family group, The Gospel Swannetts, in the early nineties, and performed numerous song with them, including, “Well Done”, and “Jesus, when Trouble Burdens Me Down”.

He was raised in a multi-talented family, which shaped his passion and inspired him to dream about having a real career in music and songwriting. The very first song he wrote was “Happiness Is Just a Step Away”, after which he came out with “Never Change Your Heart’s Desire” and “It’s My Season”. These songs are all about empowerment and dreaming towards getting a better life, and he performed them at numerous talent showcases, and charitable events, which includes performing at the YWCA of Newark NJ and Edison Job Corps of Edison NJ, and the Kessler Institute of West Orange NJ.
A New Music Star Rises

The music that is created by Donnell Isaac touches the soul and that is the reason why he is so beloved by everyone that is exposed to his talent. Donnell has been performed at numerous big events, which stretch from the south, and include the International Music Festival and Shakespeare Festival in Nashville TN. He is a resident of Greensboro NC, a native of Portsmouth, Virginia, and is a singer, a songwriter, and a self- taught keyboardist.

Donnell had a rough childhood, as he was raised in a town where poverty was rampant and drugs were prevalent. However, he credits growing up in that community with teaching him how to survive, and he didn’t let any of this bring him down and channeled all his energy into creativity. He has gone through numerous challenges, adversities, hurdles in life, which taught him how to survive in that environment and maintain his love for music.
Making Music for the Soul

In an uncertain world, the refreshing and soul touching music of Donnell Isaac, which is uniquely fused with R&B Soul and Gospel music genres, grows into a powerful genre of music filled with love and happiness. It is music for the soul, which is beloved by all, and that is why the career of Donnell Isaac continues to go grow in leaps and bounds.

Now Experience Soul singer Donnell Isaac has gone on an entirely new level with his powerful new single “Loving you” Donnell Isaac brings a sound to music industry that is unique, sultry and melodic. He performs music that brings serenity to the soul and tranquility to the mind, and invites listeners to embark on a journey to an oasis for which the soul thirsts.

Today’s guest is Music Artist Angel Cintron!

Bio

At only 8 years old, San Antonio, TX native Angelina Cintron, embarked on a journey with singing and performing to perfect her craft of songwriting, which began at just 12 years old. Today at the age of 19, Angel has progressed in her musical abilities and is now capable on multiple instruments consisting of the violin, ukulele, and piano. She entices her followers with a sound of an alternative pop/RnB style. Angel has managed to accumulate an organic following of over 154k on Instagram alone. Her social media outlets on Facebook and Twitter, among others, are also gaining traction into the thousands of followers.

Under the guidance of her management team, Studio 1601 Music, Angel is currently completing a new project written by herself and Ryan “G-Clef” Welch, who is also producing the tracks. More music in the process includes productions from the Co-Stars, consisting of Neely Dinkins Jr. and Vito Colapietro, and Alfonso Lugo of Pulp Music, among others, all of which is being shopped around to major labels.

She began her first venture in the latter part of 2015. Every composition on the EP was near and dear to her heart and gave a glimpse into the personal life of the artist. The writing credit in each of the songs of her EP is given to her as well. The order of the tracks follows a path of how Angel found herself as a person and as an artist. The project was released in October 2016, entitled “Arise”.

Angel has contributed her vocal genius to major organizations like the WNBA’s basketball team-The Silver Stars, Citibank and Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. In working with such organizations Angel has performed at venues such the AT&T Center and the Freeman Coliseum.

With countless musical works coming Angel’s way, 2017 has been a promising year for the aspiring Angel Cintron. She also looks forward to having her music published in films and TV shows as she continues building her song catalogue. Creating brand new material will be at the heart of Angel’s focus for her loyal and expanding fan base.
