Donald started gaining popularity as the musical director of the Tri-City Singers in the early ‘90s. The group made its debut with “A Songwriter’s Point of View” which was part of the indie record label GospoCentric Records, and which reached second spot of the Billboard Top Gospel Charts. They then followed it up two years later with “Bible Stories”, then being billed as Donald Lawrence & The Tri-City Singers, and releasing several songs.
