GATLIN | LaDonna Gatlin
Motivation. Message. Music.
LaDonna Gatlin knows firsthand that we can’t live someone else’s dream…that in order to be our absolute best, we must find our own voice and “sing our own song.”
She has spent her entire career empowering people to “sing their own song” as well…from the inside out…through their words, their deeds, and their actions.
An active member of the National Speakers Association, LaDonna has earned its highest professional designation, the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP). In 2005, LaDonna was one of five new inductees into the Speakers Hall of Fame, receiving the prestigious Council of Peers Award for Excellence (CPAE), a lifetime award for speaking excellence and professionalism.
LaDonna is a contributing writer to the best-selling book series Chicken Soup for the Soul. In her own book titled The Song in You, Finding Your Voice, Redefining Your Life, LaDonna shares her personal story in a very transparent (often hilarious!) way to craft an uplifting message. This you-can-do-it guide offers practical, emotional, and spiritual insights gleaned from her experiences as part of a famous musical family and as a woman whose faith compelled her to walk away from untold riches and fame to “sing a different song” apart from her brothers, Country Music’s legendary Gatlin Brothers.
With a finely tuned voice, sharp wit, and engaging communication style crafted over a lifetime of performing, LaDonna ignites audiences to boldly discover their passion, connect with their voice, and embrace a life of purpose and meaning.
