Donel Mangena was born in 2002 in England and briefly stayed in Bulawayo with his grandmother. He eventually went to England where he lives with his parents and young brother.
In January 2018 Mangena performed on the Voice and was allowed to join the team of popular singer, Black Eyed Peas, Will I am. The Voice is an international reality television singing competition franchise. The concept of the series is to find unsigned singing talent (solo or duets, professional and amateur) contested by aspiring singers. Mangena's grandmother was ecstatic when he performed at the show were Jennifer Hudson ( Oscar-winning actress) and Will I am (Black Eyed Peas singer) 'fought' to mentor Mangena.
In April 2018 Mangena was invited by Prince Harry to perform at his grandmothers 92nd birthday on the 21st of April 2018. He shared the stage with artists like Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, Anne-Marie, Shawn Mendes, Sting, and Shaggy. Donel performed a version of Pharrel’s “Happy”.
