Donna Bey is a native of Newark, New Jersey, who had entertainmentaspirations from an early age. As a child she studied ballet at GardenState Ballet, in Newark, New Jersey, but unfortunately had todiscontinue it due to lack of funds. She realized at the age of ten shecould sing and began to write songs and forget how the melody went. This was very exciting!! since dancing wasn't possible.
She sang inelementary school, middle school chorus, and gospel church choirs. Shealso was a member of the drama club at school, so she participated inplays there as well. She began to get so immersed in both of thosetalents that she decided to tryout for Arts High School, where sheattended as a Drama Major, for three years. After High School she wasthe recipient of "The Dionne Warwick scholarship" for music, Ms. Warwick decided to give back to the "Inner city" youth at that time.

She then studied music, at Essex County College, which included, voice,keyboarding, ear training and sight singing and music theory. She alsosang with the jazz ensemble and college chorus, during which the jazzensemble had the opportunity to sing backup for Ray Charles.
