Sunshine Boy...Howard Donald

Howard Paul Donald (born 28 April 1968 in Droylsden, Manchester, England) was one fifth of the hugely successful 1990s English boyband Take That. He sang lead vocals on one of the band's many number 1 singles, "Never Forget".

In the 2006 ITV documentary Take That For The Record (broadcast on the 10th anniversary of the band's demise) Howard shocked his fellow band members and manager with the revelation that he had been so depressed with the split in 1996 that he had walked away from the press conference with the genuine intention of committing suicide by jumping into the River Thames. Instead, he spent the years after the break-up developing his songwriting skills and trying to land himself a solo record deal. However, he has since relaunched himself as a successful club DJ.
