Donald Lawrence Shares Cancer Testimony During Performance in Memphis

Recently, Grammy Award-Winning Producer, Composer and Gospel Recording artist, Donald Lawrence performed his fan-favorite song “Not Making Sense, Making Faith” in Memphis after a Grizzlies game. During the performance he revealed to an unsuspecting audience that he hasn’t been in the public eye lately due to him being diagnosed with cancer. He explained that he has been receiving treatment for the diagnosis in Los Angeles. However, through the grace of God, Donald was proud to announce that there is now NO SIGN OF CANCER IN HIS BODY! His performance in Memphis was his first time performing with his singers, Co., in three months. We at uGospel are relieved to know that D. Law is winning in such a trying battle and will include him to our prayers.

Donald Lawrence has set the standard for excellence in the gospel music field over the last two decades with signature #1 radio smashes such as “Back II Eden,” “Encourage Yourself” and “The Blessing of Abraham” which spent 18 weeks at #1 on Billboard magazine’s Hot Gospel Songs radio chart. On his third solo and latest masterwork, YRM (Your Righteous Mind), Lawrence blends the classicism of traditional gospel music and retro soul grooves with uplifting, messages of self-affirmation and daily How-To-Faith lessons on the fourteen-track set.

Lawrence learned his spiritual principles from an aunt who raised him in Gastonia, NC – not far from Charlotte. A fan of the music of Walter Hawkins and Thomas Whitfield, Lawrence taught himself to play the piano by the age of fifteen and put himself through the prestigious Cincinnati Conservatory of Music as a musical theater major. He and his Professor, Worth Gardner, wrote the 1986 musical revue, “Sing Hallelujah!” that played across the country – including an off Broadway stint at the Village Gate that earned praise from The New York Times. Lawrence eventually returned to North Carolina and joined the music staff of Jim & Tammy Baker’s PTL Club television program. However, word soon spread about his talent and Lawrence was recruited as a vocal coach for En Vogue and, in the early nineties, became music director for R&B star Stephanie Mills.

As Lawrence’s stature as a producer increased, requests poured in for him to collaborate with artists as diverse as Mary J. Blige; jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis; Hezekiah Walker & the Love Fellowship Choir (cutting his #1 smash “Souled Out”) and the legendary Clark Sisters on their Grammy Award winning comeback CD, Live: One Last Time. However, he also set time aside to carve out a career as a solo artist with backing by his group, Co. His 2004 solo CD debut I Speak Life featured the radio hits “You Covered Me” and the rousing anthem, “Healed.”

The music industry has taken note of Lawrence’s majestic career and Verizon Wireless tapped him as its spokesman for its How Sweet The Sound (HSTS) national gospel choir talent competition in 2007. He has served as the face of the promotion in national television commercials, print advertising and as emcee of the actual events ever since. He also spent a year as musical mentor for BET’s “Sunday Best” television talent competition. It’s all a part of Lawrence’s future goals of expanding his career into television, film and more musical theatre.

    Thank God for Mr. Lawrence’s life and ministry. Recently, went through an experience where I met Jehovah Raphe. I AM healed. However as I walked along that path it was the ministry of Donald Lawrence that encouraged me. “I Speak Life”, “Second Wind”, The I AM Factor”. The list goes on. His music is a source of encouragement like none other. Thank you Donald for being a great blessing to the Body of Christ and for sharing your gift with the world. Greater Grace & Peace to you!

    It’s my opinion that a property foreclosures can have a significant effect on the applicant’s life. Foreclosures can have a 7 to decade negative effect on a borrower’s credit report. Any borrower having applied for home financing or just about any loans even, knows that a worse credit rating is usually, the more tricky it is to acquire a decent loan. In addition, it may affect any borrower’s power to find a quality place to lease or hire, if that gets the alternative property solution. Interesting blog post.

    Thanks for your posting on this blog site. From my experience, there are times when softening right up a photograph may well provide the professional photographer with a little bit of an artsy flare. Oftentimes however, the soft cloud isn’t what exactly you had planned and can quite often spoil a normally good photograph, especially if you anticipate enlarging this.

    Thanks for your strategies. One thing really noticed is that banks and also financial institutions have in mind the spending practices of consumers and also understand that plenty of people max outside their real credit cards around the holidays. They sensibly take advantage of this specific fact and then start flooding your inbox along with snail-mail box by using hundreds of no interest APR card offers soon after the holiday season closes. Knowing that when you are like 98% of American open public, you’ll get at the chance to consolidate credit card debt and transfer balances for 0 interest rates credit cards.
