DONNY: This Christmas


Powell knew — from the moment Hathaway heard McKinnor perform the song — what it would become. Hathaway’s music is a case study in the black experience in America, then and now — its soul, its beauty, its pain and its frustration. This Christmas, released on Atco Records, an Atlantic Records subsidiary, is no different. “It was Donny’s intention — all of our intention, really,” Powell said, “that we wanted to make a song that would become a standard.”
