Donaldson launched her career as a nightclub singer and then toured with Harry Belafonte and Lena Horne. During the 1970s, she was a popular Broadway star and was most famous for portraying the loveless chorine Miss Adelaide, opposite Robert Guillaume, in an all-black revival of Frank Loesser's Guys and Dolls in 1976. She and Guillaume were again paired in Purlie and No Place to be Somebody.

At the time of her death from cancer, she was playing Lillie Belle Barber on the soap opera The Young and the Restless.
