“Shelter From the Storm” – Donnie C

“Shelter From the Storm”
Donnie C
Kingdom Records (2013)
God is the ultimate umbrella, and Donnie C is feeling “blessed to have shelter in times of stormy weather.”  Although this inspirational slow jam from Donnell Charlton (aka Donnie C) has a rainy day feel to it, the message is about escaping the rain in the sanctuary of the savior.
From Portsmouth, Virginia, singer-songwriter and keyboard player Donnie C sang with his family group, the Gospel Swannetts, before developing his own neo-soul vocal style.  “Shelter From the Storm” is from his forthcoming sophomore album, Shelter.
