Donna De Lory made her professional singing debut at age eight singing a Recipe dog food commercial. She sang on children’s albums for Walt Disney and was heard on the tune “It’s a Small World”, featured on a ride at Disneyland and Disney World. She also sang on commercials for McDonald’s, Mattel, and Eastman Kodak. In addition, she contributed vocals to projects by Kim Carnes, Barry Manilow, Santana and the Rocky II soundtrack.
She moved to Nashville with her father and brother at the age of 16 following the death of her mother from breast cancer in 1980. Her father found a professional home in Nashville’s Music Row area as a producer for Capitol Records. She started working at a vegetarian restaurant and from there, became a vegetarian. De Lory made friends with a few songwriters and became inspired by seeing how much effort they put into their work. She started spending a lot of her time on writing songs and recording demos before going back to California after finishing Hillsboro High School to study dancing, singing and acting.
