LaDonna Gatlin knows firsthand that we can't live someone else's dream...that in order to be our absolute best, we must find our own voice and "sing our own song."

LaDonna literally grew up on stage singing with her brothers-the legendary Gatlin Brothers. In the early 1970's the Gatlins took their family harmony to Nashville. But a detour appeared on the road to stardom...LaDonna got married. At this defining moment, she realized that success for her could be measured in a different way. So she took a giant leap of faith, chose to follow her heart, and "sing a different song" apart from her brothers.

She has spent her entire career empowering people to "sing their own song" as well...from the inside out...through their words, their deeds, and their actions.

A seasoned professional, LaDonna has shared her message everywhere...from corporate powerhouses to the prison cells of death row. She truly speaks from the heart with stories that are the stuff of life, driving home common sense wisdom for everyday living in the process. LaDonna is uniquely gifted to speak and sing her message straight into your heart. Her presentations educate, inspire and entertain and are an unforgettable experience for her audiences!

LaDonna is an active member of the National Speakers Association, and has earned its highest professional designation, the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP). In July of 2005, LaDonna was one of five speakers (and the only woman!) inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame (CPAE Council of Peers Award for Excellence), a lifetime award for speaking excellence and professionalism. She's recorded 4 solo CD's and is a contributing writer to the best-selling book series Chicken Soup for the Soul.
