Moon River - LaDonna Gatlin & The Lennon Sisters

LaDonna Gatlin has been WOWING audiences since she was five years old.  

Born into "showbiz," LaDonna grew up onstage performing with her brothers, the legendary Gatlin Brothers.  But in the mid 1970's, this gutsy Texas native chose to follow her heart and “sing a different song” apart from her famous family.  

LaDonna has shared that "song" everywhere...from corporate powerhouses...to the prison cells of death row. 
 
Her presentations resonate with audiences all over the country because, simply put, she makes people laugh, lightens their load, and leaves them with a song in their hearts.  AND...they always learn something in the process.

LaDonna is one of only a handful of professional speakers who holds both the Certified Speaking Professional designation and the CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award, two of the most prestigious honors bestowed by the National Speakers Association. 

She's written and recorded her own original songs and sung on both Grammy Award-winning and Dove Award-winning records.

She's the author of The Song in You: Finding your Voice, Redefining Your Life, a you-can-do-it guide that offers practical, emotional, and spiritual insights gleaned from her own life experiences.   In addition, she's a contributing writer to the best-selling book series, Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Married to her best friend for over 40 years, they live in a suburb of Dallas Texas.  They have 2 adult children and 7 grandchildren.
