Early Life

Howard Donald was born on April 28, 1968 in Droylsden. Lancashire, England. He attended Moorside Primary School and then Littlemoss High School. He grew up with his brother Colin, who had a large vinyl collection that strongly influenced the development of Donald’s music taste. As a teen, he listened to electronic acts like Kraftwerk, John Foxx, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, and Gary Numan. He also became interested in dancing and frequented the burgeoning breakdancing circuit in the Greater Manchester area, where he first met his future bandmate, Jason Orange. He also began DJing in the local club scene.

Take That

In his early 20s, Donald auditioned for Nigel Martin-Smith’s new boy band project in Manchester. He was selected for the group along with Gary Barlow, Jason Orange, and Robbie Williams. The group was eventually named Take That. Since their formation in 1990, the group released 28 top-40 singles, 12 of which reached the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart. They also released nine number one albums on the UK Albums Chart. Robbie Williams left the group in 1995 and Take That carried on as a quartet. Donald generally was not often featured on lead vocals, though he did sing lead vocals on the single “Never Forget” in 1995. The single reached the top spot in the UK that year.

In early 1996, Take That decided to split up. Following the split, Donald attempted a solo career. He recorded the single “Speak Without Words” but then abandoned his idea to become a solo artist and instead returned to DJing.

In 2005, Take That reformed and announced a reunion tour called The Ultimate Tour, which they embarked on in the summer of 2006. They also released a greatest hits album called “Never Forget: The Ultimate Collection.” The tour was followed in late 2006 by their first studio album since 1995 called “Beautiful World.” That album spawned two number one hits in “Patience” and “Shine.” Donald was featured on lead vocals on two of the album’s other tracks: “Beautiful World” and “Mancunian Way.” The latter song is a tribute to the band’s hometown of Manchester.

In 2008, Take That released another album called “The Circus.” Donald again sang lead on two tracks: “What is Love” and “Here.” He also shared lead vocals with the rest of the band on the album’s opening track, “The Garden.” They released the album “Progress” in 2010 and Donald sang lead vocals on the track “Affirmation.” He also played drums on several songs on the album. The group’s next album was “Wonderland” in 2017. Donald sang lead vocals on the track “Every Revolution.” They released the album “Odyssey” in 2018 and then the album “This Life” in 2023.

Other Work

Donald has participated in a couple of reality shows in his later career. In 2013, he was one of the judges on the dancing show “Got to Dance” in Germany. In 2021, Donald appeared on the reality show “The Masked Dancer.” He reached the finals and was unmasked in third place.

Donald has been involved in some controversies related to the music industry. In June 2012, it was revealed that he had invested millions in various music industry investment schemes along with bandmates Gary Barlow and Mark Owen. The news attracted attention as some of the schemes could serve as tax shelters for high-net-worth people. However, the band’s lawyers stated that each band member had paid significant tax and had truly believed the schemes were not for tax avoidance purposes.

Personal Life

From 2000 to 2008, Donald was in an on/off relationship with musician Adakini Ntuli. He was granted a super-injunction against her in April 2010 after Ntuli began dating and became engaged to publicist Max Clifford. Ntuli has been in talks with “News of the World” to share details about her life and past relationship with Donald. He was granted the injunction in order to prevent details about their relationship from becoming public. He stated in a 2005 documentary that he had previously struggled with thoughts of suicide, particularly right after Take That had split up, and planned to drown himself in the River Thames. However, he did not go through with his plan and his mental health improved.

Since 2015, Donald has been married to illustrator Katie Halil. They married in a private ceremony on January 2. They have two sons together. Donald also has two daughters from two previous relationships.

Donald has stated that he supports the legalization of cannabis, finding that it is less dangerous and violent than alcohol. He is a fan of sports and supports the Manchester United football club.
