Donnie Johnson was generating buzz on Atlanta’s local music scene even before his debut CD, an indie production called The Colored Section.

While some compare his style with another Donny (Hathaway), he credits contemporary gospel singers such as the Clark Sisters and Commissioned as his biggest musical influences. He grew up in Atlanta, the son of preachers whose strict religious upbringing left him little room to pursue his dream of becoming a soul singer. At age 20, Donnie hit the local Atlanta open-mic scene and performing with people like India.Arie in the late nineties. Today his concerts are part gospel revival, part unity rally, with fans singing along to his Black-and-proud anthems (“Beautiful Me” and “Cloud 9”) and love songs that avoid the typical R&B male bravado (“Heaven Sent”).

Lady Alma's fans run the gamut - from progressive artists like Moby, Kindred the Family Soul, India.Arie, Joan Osborne, Musiq and Les Nubians to regular working-class folk in West London clubs and West Philly barber shops. In cities everywhere from Atlanta and Amsterdam to Toronto and Tokyo, vocal sensation Alma Horton -- known to her fans worldwide as LADY ALMA - has become the name to know, deemed "the heart & soul of Philadelphia's soul scene" and heralded as "the truth in a roomful of lies" among tastemaker's circles.
