Singer-Songwriter Lisa Donnelly (www.lisadonnelly.com) made her television debut last night on ABC Television Network’s The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.’s Wedding performing an original song “Here To Stay” as well as the Elvis Presley cover “I Can’t Help Falling In Love”.
Co-written by Ethan Allen and composed specifically for The Bachelorette’s Ashley Herbert and J.P. Rosenbaum’s wedding, “Here To Stay” is now available for purchase at iTunes and all major retail sites. As a special gift to fans, Donnelly’s home page also features a free download of the Christmas classic “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”.
“It was an amazing experience to write the original song, “Here To Stay” for The Bachelorette,” said Lisa Donnelly. “Ashley and J.P. told me how important music was in their lives, and they loved the song I wrote about their story. I was so happy to help make their day everything they wanted it to be. It’s not every day you get to the opportunity to perform your own song on national television so this was an exciting opportunity to get more exposure as an artist.”
Lisa Donnelly found her voice singing in blues clubs in her hometown of Lawrence, Kansas. After college, she turned her focus to singing and songwriting and released her solo debut We Had A Thing in 2010. Working as an independent artist, Lisa recently quit her day job to focus exclusively on music. She is currently in the studio with Composer/
Producer Ethan Allen recording her sophomore release, expected sometime in early 2013.
