Welcome, and thanks for visiting Donna McClary-Derrick music!

Donna is a Christian Folk singer/songwriter from Beech Island, SC, who's music is both refreshing and heartfelt as she draws her lyrics from life-related moments.  






What listeners are saying about Donna's music:

"Keep God in Sight is a calming, uplifting, beautiful rendition in which Donna's true emotions and heart shows through. Her music has a purpose other than just putting words to music to get something out there. Each song tells a story that has impacted her life, but also brings memories to her listeners of similar events in our lives which have touched our hearts. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this CD over and over- usually driving down the road and thinking about the love of God and how He takes us through trials and helps us to be thankful for His blessings. I hope Donna does not stop at this one, but keeps them coming."   Sharon Brown

"I think Donna is going to be a fresh, new voice in Christian music. I found this CD to be both inspiring and relaxing. I also believe Donna's heart and soul comes through in the words and music. Looking forward to hearing more from her in the near future."   S. L Savell


I just felt led to write this email telling you what a blessing this site and your music are to me. I have played dulcimer for a few years, and have been constantly searching for "contemporary" christian music for the dulcimer and JUST NOW FOUND YOU!! Thank you so much for your ministry and I hope to be able to share it with my church. God Bless!

Today I’m sharing a song that I wrote a few years ago for a friend who had passed away~ Sabrina Jones Heath. She was such a beautiful person, and my hope is that this song will bring comfort to her family, as well as others who have suffered the tragic loss of a loved one. 

Many thanks to Mike Frost for all of his wonderful contributions to this piece. 

Hard to Say Goodbye is now available on all streaming platforms, and is also available for purchase anywhere digital music is sold

Please feel free to share this song with anyone that you think may be comforted by it. 



My latest single I Thank God For You has been released today!

Today I’m sharing a song that I composed for my husband a few years ago, and I was able to record it just in time for our 20th Anniversary that we'll be celebrating on May 29! Mike has been a wonderful husband and father, and I wanted to do something memorable for this special anniversary. I Thank God For You is available on all streaming platforms and everywhere music is sold. I hope you enjoy it!
