Donald Williams, 71, of Washington, DC has always been very passionate about the community in which he was born and raised, DC, as well as our country. He served a full term of 6 years in the Army Reserve during the Vietnam War. Along with loving this amazing country, he has also always loved music–all kinds of music. Donald has been involved in the music industry his whole life. He started out his professional career after the Army Reserve as a music director for the WPFW radio station in DC and hosted a show called “Bright Moments.” He has also attended a multitude of music festivals and was even the manager for a friend’s band, which is when he got into comedy and eventually started opening for his friend’s band doing stand-up.
Donald attended several music festivals back in the day, but hasn’t been to any in years. Wish of a Lifetime sent Donald to New Orleans with his daughter, Margaret, the first weekend of May of this year. Donald and Margaret spent the weekend experiencing the history and heritage and all that the city has to offer including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival itself. While there, was able to meet Don’s favorite musician, Charles Lloyd. When Donald was asked about his wish, he said, “It was a WIN WIN WIN! We just had a wonderful time with everything that we did and it was nothing but positive! Thank you Wish of a Lifetime for granting my Wish of a Lifetime!”
