Pianist Angela Donadio finds tranquility on uplifting new album
(Published: March 02, 2016)

Angela Donadio's new album Finding Tranquility is like literally being offered the gift of peace in a CD. Her contemporary piano interpretations of classic hymns will calm your soul.

As you listen to it, Donadio takes you on a stroll at the beach with a view of the sun setting as the ocean touches the tips of your toes. It's the perfect company to start and end your day. Donadio's album will take you on a journey of serenity where every note is full of emotion and every song is filled with hope.

"Amazing Grace" is a classic hymn that has been covered many times. Donadio's version is one that not only captures the heart but also the soul. It starts with relaxing streams of water. The tranquil ripples continues until the full piano plays the song. The song is already moving as it is but Donadio's lyrical piano cover makes it more poignant, comforting, and serene. With waves of water washing over toward the end of the song, listeners will feel renewed by this refreshing track.

Accompanied by Donadio's angelic voice, "I Surrender All" is a track that will move listeners to tears. Powerful and soothing at the same time, this song may just be the catalyst you need to build up your faith in God.

Being a worship leader, songwriter, and artist, Donadio knows very well how to connect emotionally with her audience or in this case, listeners. Her flawless voice and impeccable piano playing gives an inspiring interpretation to the classic hymn.

"It Is Well With My Soul" is a track that speaks volumes done in Donadio's effervescent style. Her version is enthralling but there is grandeur in the way the song is interpreted. It is powerful, majestic, and almost magical especially toward the latter part of the track. It's as if Donadio is speaking on your behalf through her immaculate playing. The smooth flow between subtleties and crescendos of this song makes it every bit remarkable.

Who would've thought that "The Old Rugged Cross" mashed up with "Clair De Lune" would result in a sweet jazz piano song? Donadio created a heartfelt version of the hymn while fusing it with a classic Claude Debussy piece. She gave a sweet rendition of "The Old Rugged Cross" with her effortless playing, as if she is just fluttering through the keys. Her fresh take on the song makes it more emotionally connected to its listeners.

In this album, Donadio allows her listeners to experience a ray of sunshine, a cool breeze, a breathtaking sunset, a serenade of rippling waters, all laid out beautifully in a sundry of tranquil renditions of songs that will uplift your spirit.

Everything you will hear in this collection will speak straight to your heart and soul and that connection is more than enough reason to soak in this captivating music over and over again.
