Biography

McDonald’s birth name, Cleveland Parker, was later changed to Lee McDonald. He later resumed using his birth name and goes under that name presently. He started singing at the age of 13 in his church choir, school talent shows and on street corners. Always admiring singers such as Smokey Robinson and Four Tops, his main influence was Cuba Gooding, lead singer of the R&B group Main Ingredient. Lee went to New York in 1969 and sang in nightclubs and hotels. He also sang with many local bands. Recording a demo with a group called August Heat was when he met Ron Foster who would eventually produce, write and arrange his first professional recording. His last recording with Ron Foster was a seven song 12” vinyl LP which was released in 1981 on Debbie Records (located in Paterson, New Jersey). All songs are published by Trace Back Publishing also under the umbrella of Debbie Records with the exception of two cover songs, “We’ve Only Just Begun” and “I’ll Do Anything for You.” Other titles on the LP include “Sweet Magic,” “Slow Down,” “Gotta Get Home,” “Show Me,” “Let’s Play Luck,” and an instrumental version of “Sweet Magic.” With the renewed interest in his Sweet Magic LP, Lee had plans to tour behind this recording, especially in the UK, where it has become extremely popular with soul collectors and dance fans alike.
