This morning we lost a great friend, Don Coulter from Penny & the Quarters. His background vocals, along with his two brothers Bill and John, provided the foundation of one of Numero’s biggest “hits”, “You And Me.” He was struck tragically by a stroke almost a year ago and showed amazing resilience while attempting to recover against a number of opportunistic ailments and the inability to speak. We send our heartfelt condolences to his widow Merlene, his sister Nannie (aka Penny), his brothers, and the rest of their vast extended family and friends in Columbus.

One of the greatest blessings of the past six years has been to sing alongside Donald in the Martin Luther King Memorial Choir and the Harmony Project. I will miss his amazing voice and his positive energy and friendship forever.

I will forever miss that mellow tenor voice! It was truly an honor to minister with him and be a part of his gospel group DC Gospel Quest. He was like a big brother and I will miss him greatly.

My sincere sympathies to Nannie Sharpe and the entire Coulter family. I never met Donald but had the privilege to interview “Penny” when I was a reporter for the Columbus Dispatch. Thank you for the gift of “You and Me” and lots of other music. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Jeff Sheban, Columbus, Ohio
