Donna DeLory: Sky Is Open (Music Video)

I have a not so secret love for long time Madonna back up singer Donna DeLory's solo music. I generally don't like ambient music but her voice is so sweet and soothing that I really can't help but listen. This is the title song from Donna's latest studio album "Sky Is Open" (2006). The video was directed by her friend Nick Spanos and was shot in and around her house in California.

As mentioned, Donna has performed back up vocals for Madonna during every one of her tours from The Who's That Girl Tour (1987) up to The Confessions Tour (2006). Donna was not available to perform on Madonna's latest trek (2008's Sticky & Sweet Tour) due to conflicts with her own solo tour and the fact that she is expecting her second child this month. She already has a daughter named Sofia. Here is a clip from an interview she did, describing an experience she had while preparing for Madonna's Drowned World Tour.
