Donna Greenberg is a unique and versatile artist. Her warm, sweet voice, innate musicality, dramatic flair, and sensitivity to lyrics are evident in her lively and heartfelt performances. Whether singing originals or standards, Donna captures the soul of each song. Her deep love of music shines through all that she sings and creates.
A vocalist, songwriter, lyricist -as well as a choreographer, former dancer and dance filmmaker - Donna’s earliest musical influences were jazz, opera, musical theatre, and liturgical music. After graduating in English Literature from University of Toronto, Donna completed extensive studies in voice, piano, harmony, counterpoint, and ear training. She performed numerous solo recitals of classical music including programmes in French, Italian, Spanish, and German as well as including gesture in her Baroque song recitals. She has also composed and wrote the lyrics for a number of vocal and choral compositions.
Her first real foray into jazz was her one woman show A Tribute to Gershwin, Porter and Rodgers, which she sang, danced, and wrote. Her decision to study and perform jazz came when she began coaching sessions with Adi Braun in 2008. Since then, Donna has worked with arranger Jordan Klapman on some of her originals which have been recorded on her debut CD Stranger. She has enjoyed her return to the stage as a jazz vocalist and looks forward to sharing her unique blend of talents with audiences.

Welcome to THE JAZZ NETWORK WORLDWIDE "A GREAT PLACE TO HANG"
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
