At a very young age, Donney Wright knew he wanted to perform and write music.
READ BIO >
His mother wrote poetry before he was born and his father was a radio DJ. Though his parents divorced when he was only three-years-old, music and writing continued to be a part of his childhood.
Donney grew up on the north side of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, surrounded by poverty and drug activity. Instead of turning to a destructive lifestyle, he found creative writing as a positive outlet. He also kept busy by being involved in his local teen community center, continually seeking out male mentors. Still, he felt the absence of his biological father. That feeling stayed with him until he heard about a relentless love.
Donney describes it, “I remember hearing that God wanted a relationship with me and that His love was greater than any of the emptiness and hurt that I experienced in my life.”
That stuck with him; it resonated in such a way that he began to live a life that honored what he believed in. He has shared his music for well over a decade and continues to inspire and point people to the hope that he has.
When he’s not performing, Donney enjoys eating sushi, traveling, and spending time with his wife and friends.
