donald-lawrence_jacket*Grammy award-winning gospel artist Donald Lawrence inked a deal for his own syndicated radio show, “Music Therapy with Donald Lawrence,” according to AlwaysAList.

The radio show will launch in January 2015 — airing on urban adult contemporary radio stations across the country, which will be distributed by Doug Banks Media Group owned by radio veteran Doug Banks.

“I’m pretty excited about it,” Lawrence said in a statement. “I’ve always been committed to using music as therapy to inspire and encourage as well as to entertain and that’s what the Doug Banks Media Group recruited me to do with this show.”

He added, “There will also be audience call-ins, motivational messages and daily words of wisdom to help listeners live their best life.”

His show will branch out from just gospel music. He’s taking a more mainstream approach, which has Banks excited about the upcoming syndicated show.

“Donald Lawrence is a very talented and well-respected gospel music industry icon! We are excited go bring his Music Therapy program to radio stations around the country,” said Banks about partnering with Lawrence.
