Niki Haris and Donna De Lory release double-track debut single of Rain

Over the years we have received many kind words from our fans expressing how much they wanted us to sing together again. It is because of your encouragement that we have decided to come together to launch this duets project. What better way to start than with the release of “Rain,” a song we have always loved singing live together with Madonna. On stage, our three part harmonies felt magical.
Working with Madonna was a blessing on many levels, but we both are most grateful for the friendship we were able to forge from all our experiences together.
Here we are 29 years later ready to make music!

[Exclusive Interview] Niki+Donna of the Holy Trinity

Ever since Donna De Lory and Niki Haris met more than 30 years ago, the singers have shared a deep kinship, both musically and spiritually. Fans felt it, too, as they heard the pair’s extraordinary harmonies wrap around each other to form one singular voice for nearly 15 years as they backed Madonna on several tours and videos. Their lives had other uncanny parallels too: both are the children of professional musicians and their daughters, now 13, were born one day apart.

Now, Niki and Donna have reunited, as Niki + Donna, for their double track single, a cover of Madonna’s “Rain,” available digitally May 13. The remix version sparkles with sensual vibrancy, while the acoustic rendition highlights their amazing vocal union, reminiscent of when they first performed the song with Madonna on 1993’s Girlie Show tour.

De Lory and Haris came to wide attention in 1987, when they began a long working relationship with Madonna, initially backing the diva on her Who’s That Girl World Tour. The ladies continued to work with Madge on record and in live performances for many years (Haris through 2001 and De Lory through 2007) and can be heard on such classic albums as Like a PrayerI’m BreathlessEroticaBedtime Stories and Ray of Light.

The pair hopes to record an EP of covers and never-before-heard originals through a crowdfunding campaign on PledgeMusic.
Niki and Donna have each had remarkable solo careers. Donna has recorded albums on MCA, then formed a partnership with cellist Cameron Stone for her first independent release, Bliss, as she moved into world music, had her music heard in yoga studios around the world and, most recently, released The Unchanging, on which Niki appeared on the track “Kinder.” Niki has released 9 studio and live albums, as well as collaborated with such artists as Whitney Houston, Tom Jones, Ray Charles, Santana and Enrique Iglesias. Now they’ve come back together in response to both their fans’ requests and their own hearts.
