You may remember about a month back when we mentioned Jermaine Dupri's interest in a Dallas singer nicknamed Phatfffat, who, oddly enough, he found online. Well, I'll have Sachse resident Dondria Nicole'sfull Youtube-to-major label success story in my column next week, so keep an eye out for that.
And here's why: Dondria--or what we've heard of her so far, at least--is actually really good. Listen to this stream of her debut single, "Can't Stop":
A little Beyonce-like, yeah? At the very least, that means my mom's gonna love this girl. (For the record: That's hardly a knock on Dondria. Mom's got pretty good taste.) --Pete Freedman
