Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Richard Marx, Melissa Manchester and several others have teamed up with The Tribe, a group of session musicians, to record a new version of the late Donny Hathaway's classic "This Christmas.”
Proceeds will benefit the Donny Hathaway Legacy Project, which was established by his youngest daughter, Donnita Hathaway, to honor Hathaway’s musical legacy and provide effective resources to aid those who suffer from mental illness. She said, “It is my life’s goal to honor my father by addressing the issues that tragically ended his life."
Hathaway suffered from mental illness and died by suicide on January 13th, 1979 at the age of 33.
