Donna Tucker has been blessed with not only a vibrant voice, but also a musical style and enchanting presence both on and off the stage. She is an unforgettable talent.
A Kansas native, she began her career in Dallas as a jazz singer/pianist as well as working as a TV commercial actor, voice over narrator and recording jingles. She became a highly visible talent and spokesperson traveling the U.S. and Canada, performing concerts and narrating new products for the Southland Corporation, otherwise known as 7-11.
In 1999, Donna began a long running contract with the Westin Toyko in Tokyo, Japan. Throughout the years, she has truly created a following from “around the world.” Guests of the Westin call ahead to book their travel plans with one question being “Will Donna Tucker happen to be there during our stay?” No other entertainer in the hotel’s history has been contracted as often as Donna Tucker.
My greatest pleasure is performing with music students from various universities especially when the concert includes the orchestra! This particular sampler was recorded live with students gaining the experience of performance and recording skills. These arrangements are from my personal book arranged for professional level players. The Washburn University Jazz Orchestra displayed a great level of talent!
