Donell Jones (born May 22, 1972, Chicago, Illinois) is an American R&B singer, songwriter and record producer. He is most notable for the hits “U Know What’s Up“, “Where I Wanna Be” and his cover of Stevie Wonder‘s “Knocks Me Off My Feet”.
Jones’ upbringing was rough. He struggled between wanting to be a musician and a member of the Gangster Disciples, a street gang. After a brush with death, Jones left the gang and focused on a music career forming the group Porscha. However, Jones was gaining notice as a writer penning songs for established R&B acts such as Usher (he produced the singer’s 1995 hit “Think of You“) and 702 (band)‘s “Get It Together”. Jones also wrote for groups such as Brownstone and Silk.
He has five daughters.
