Magic On The Stage

LaDonna has been performing since the age of three, receiving her first paycheck at the ripe old age of five! The stage is her second home. She connects with her audience using BOTH words and music that will leave a lasting impact.

World Class Speaker

LaDonna is one of only a handful of professional speakers awarded both the Certified Speaking Professional designation and the CPAE Hall of Fame Award, two of the most prestigious honors bestowed by the National Speakers Association. This lady knows how to deliver a powerful, effective message to your audience.

Songwriter, Entertainer, and Recording Artist

The baby sister (ONLY sister!) of the Gatlin Brothers, LaDonna has excelled in the world of country and gospel music. She's not only toured with her brothers, but has performed with country greats like Johnny Cash, June Carter, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, and countless others. She has written and recorded her own songs and performed on both Grammy-Award-winning and Dove Award-winning records. Yet, she is down to earth and completely focused on serving her clients.

Author and Expert

She is the author of The Song in You: Finding your Voice, Redefining Your Life. She is also a contributing writer to the bet-selling book series, Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Through her experiences as a performer, professional speaker, and author, she has developed an expertise in showing people how to tune up their life so that their success becomes...well, music to their ears. And don't think this expertise comes from a magical lifestyle where everything was given to her. Much of LaDonna's wisdom comes from the ups and downs of her own fascinating journey.


LaDonna connects with the common experiences of everyone in your audience because of the life she has led and the values she embraces.

This "gutsy" lady left a career in the spotlight with the Gatlin Brothers to pursue her own path and "sing her own song..." That "song" has taken her from the heights of success to the depths of clinical depression. Emerging a stronger, wiser person, LaDonna brings that wide range of experience to the platform every time she steps on a stage.

Most importantly, she is a family-oriented woman who has been married to her husband Tim for more than 40 years. They have two adult children, six grandchildren (and counting!)...and a lifetime of amazing memories...

She is an engaging personality who will bring a spark to your next event.
