In search of personal fulfillment is a quest Douglas Willett has uncovered since relocating to Greensboro, NC in 1990. He was placed and raised in foster care at the age of 2 in Providence Kentucky. Thirteen years later, during his first church solo, Willett first experienced his Gospel Roots and ability to touch the hearts and souls of his listeners by taking personal experiences transcending them into memorable moments for everyone.

His style and music can be paired with Earth Wind & Fire’s inspirational value, self healing, and love. Vocally he can be compared to Brian McKnight, Johnny Gill, and Fred Hammonds. His writing skills are developing everyday through life experiences being around people and listening. He compares his writing to India. Arie, Kirk Franklin, Brian McKnight Norah Jones, and Sade. Willett said," My melodies are influenced by listening to all genre's and being alert to unique pitches in my surroundings." His unique voice quality has made him a requested voice at showcases, weddings, beach shows, and special music programs.

Currently Douglas is studying Entertainment Law, another goal is to obtain his own music publishing co one day. He enters songwriting competions, workshops, and seminars to continue his education. Over the past ten years he’s been studying voice and 3 years of music theory with his private music instructor. This he feels will give him the elements and foundation needed to secure a professional career in music. His accomplishments include a featured soloist for the Greensboro Orchestra Symphony, first single; “Candle Lit For You" was selected as a finalist for the 2005 (ISC) International Songwriting Competion in Nashville Tenn. The single also was in regular rotation with local radio stations. In addition Douglas also made it as a finalist for the (TJMS) Tom Joyner Morning Show 2005 Big Break. His upcoming single entitled, “Move On," was selected as the theme song for a dramatic play in North Carolina. He was also selected a finalist for The Donald Lawrence Demo Critique and just recently was featured on the home page of B E T.COM/yaheard artist.

In the past, Willett has shared the stage with performers such as the Righteous Brothers, Impressions & Kenny Loggings and is looking forward to working with more artists. Consequently each performance has progressed him to a higher means of personal achievement. When asked what sets him apart from other solo artists Willett replies, “ I challenge myself to write a song in any setting at any time and make it conversational."

He will continue to pursue his career as a vocalist, songwriter, performer, and recording artist. For more information, Douglas Willett can be contacted at (336) 255-6803/218 8602 email at
