Donny’s first endeavors were in the world of sports. He was the New Mexico State Judo Champion for three years running, as well as Junior Olympic Judo champion. He received a full scholarship to the University of New Mexico for Gymnastics. He then transferred to Pasadena City College and became California Junior College all-around Gymnastics Champion. Donny ended his sporting career at the University of Cal-State Fullerton. He was Team Captain and won fifth rank All-American status at the U.S.A. National Gymnastics Championships.

Donny started his entertainment career in television on “The Guinness Game show” in Los Angeles, California where he achieved a 1980 Guinness Book of world Record. He then tried his hand at acting receiving a part in Melanie Griffith’s movie, “Cherry 2000” and another Sci-fi movie entitled “Rubicon- Red Alert”.

Donny Ray’s first singing job was with the internationally acclaimed singing group “The Platters”. He toured the world for two years as the group’s master of ceremony and base singer. After leaving The Platters, he studied the music of Nat king Cole. Donny’s uncanny looks and smooth base baritone voice landed him a spot at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas, portraying the late Great Nat King Cole in the hit show “Legends in Concert”. In the two years of staring at the Imperial Palace, Donny won the Las Vegas new comer award and Las Vegas Variety Entertainer of the Year Award for both years. He was also a headliner for the “Legends in Concert Broadway tour”.

Donny left Legends after two years and moved to Australia, where he built a strong following becoming a regular performer on national television shows such as, “The Midday Show”, “Good Morning Australia” and “Melbourne’s Tonight Live” show.
