Donna De Lory is a singer, dancer and songwriter. Part of a musical family, De Lory has been performing since a young age. Her voice can be heard on albums by Carly Simon, Ray Parker, Jr., Kim Carnes, Santana, Laura Branigan, Belinda Carlisle, French singer Mylene Farmer and Madonna, the latter whom De Lory accompanied as Backing Singer/Dancer on every concert from the Who's That Girl Tour in 1987 up to the Confessions Tour in 2006. Her performance with Madonna at the Live Earth 2007 concert in London was their most recent professional collaboration. De Lory is committed to her own solo tour for the first six weeks of Madonna's 2008 Sticky & Sweet world tour and this will mark the first occasion in more than 21 years that De Lory has not been a member of Madonna's touring company.

The De Lory family is well-known in the music industry: Donna is the daughter of musician/record producer/arranger Al De Lory, who played piano, electric organ, and harpsichord on The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds album and was responsible, among other things, for Glen Campbell's three-album "golden era" on Capitol Records.

De Lory performs Elise's theme, "My Destiny", in the 2006 game Sonic the Hedgehog. Her song, "In the Sun" was featured at the end of episode 5 of NBC's drama Life.
