Gospel singer, musician, composer, missionary, and ordained minister Donn Thomas was born again at the age of nine when doctors diagnosed him with a terminal case of spinal meningitis. Lifted by his mom’s prayers, Thomas heard the Lord calling him to the ministry, he answered and fully recovered. His best friend, LaVoughn, provided encouragement during down periods; the childhood friends/sweethearts married in 1972.
He always wanted to record the music in his head, and a chance meeting with David Diggs fulfilled the dream. Thomas had written songs and produced demos, but Diggs elevated the process and secured him a deal with Myrrh Records.
