Former Bad Boy Records Recording Artist Donnie Klang Signs With Twenty Two Recordings To Release New Material Under His Own Imprint.
About Donnie Klang: Klang was born in Brooklyn, New York. He began modeling as a baby and doing television and film work from a young age, getting minor roles on NYPD Blue to The Nanny. He was in jazz band and band in middle school, later attending chorus in high school. He was part of pop groups in St. Dominic High School and Island Trees High School, namely Playa Deception and INT. The latter which released an independent record called Hip-Pop. He attended Hofstra University briefly on a scholarship studying music management and business and minoring in music. Klang decided to take a semester off of college to pursue a music career with his group.
Klang had been in INT for nine years before it broke up because their parents wanted them to go back to school as the band was going nowhere. He auditioned for American Idol twice but never got past the first round. These events led to him being apprehensive of pursuing music further. Not long after returning to Hofstra and working at a warehouse, the chance came for Making the Band 4 and he again took time off from college in 2007. A friend had entered his MySpace account into an audition which he later attended at the encouragement of his family and friends. He was awarded his own solo contract by Diddy instead of a spot in the group. Klang released his debut album, Just a Rolling Stone, in late 2008 which peaked at number nineteen on the Billboard 200. He later opened for Janet Jackson in the fall. Since Then Donnie Klang Has Been Busy Recording A New Studio Which He’s Preparing To Release In Fall of 2012.
