In so many ways, Kitty Donohoe is, as someone wisely observed, "...what we come to expect from leaders in songwriting."
Kitty’s music defies classification, for its influences are as varied as her lyrics are "heartfelt, direct and honest," and her voice "gorgeous," "angelic," and "just right on everything from a mournful ballad to a gritty blues number." Kitty has recorded 5 CD's and has earned the respect of music critics across the country and the abiding affection of fans who know her as a warm and natural performer whose songs are "intelligent, literate...[and] infused with an inherent optimism."
Many consider her song "There Are No Words," her response to the terrorists attacks on 9/11, for which she received a Michigan Emmy, to be profoundly moving. The song quickly made its way around the nation and the world, and was used in a film in 2008 regarding the Pentagon 9/11 experience, which led to an invitation to sing it live at the dedication of the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial. To date over a dozen artists have recorded Kitty’s originals, and Paul Stookey, of Peter, Paul & Mary, was regularly performing ‘There Are No Words’ for some time.
