EBONY: How has your life changed since you got discovered from those You Tube videos of you singing in your bedroom? I’ve definitely gotten stopped everywhere since then. Just the love and the recognition that I have gotten, that is the biggest change.And then the surprising thing is how many people saw me and know me that are not in America. EBONY: How long were your You Tube videos up before you got discovered? EBONY: I’ve noticed that you are going by Dondria Nicole now instead of just Dondria or Phatfffat. DN: The change was to show my growth as a woman, artist and person.I, as Dondria or Phatfffat, was very inexperienced, young and just kind of going with the flow. My other one is also on my first album: “Where Did We Go Wrong.” It made the album, and I was excited because I was just kind of trying it out, and that made me more confident in my writing. DN: I’m still going to give authentic R&B, because that is really important to me. Just give you a more mature, established sound, because I did a lot of experimenting before trying to figure out where I wanted to go.I had a little bit of say, but I didn’t know what I was saying. I have embraced my confidence, sexiness and sassiness. EBONY: What made you first realize you wanted to pursue a music career?
Dondria began singing at a young age in her church choir after her friend David Baker asked her to join with him.
In 2006 at the age of 19, she created a You Tube channel using the username "Phatfffat" to showcase her singing talent.
