Event Description:

Widely recognized for his distinct soulful vocals, Michael McDonald is often imitated, but never duplicated. Debuting his jazz and R&B sound with the Doobie Brothers, McDonald released Grammy-winning record “What a Fool Believes,” before launching his solo career. His hit song, “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time Your Near)” peaked on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, R&B, and Adult Contemporary Charts. McDonald has also collaborated with a number of artists, including Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Toto, Kenny Loggins, and Christopher Cross. He added his own style to renditions of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and others from the Motown era in his ultimate collection, Motown. Michael McDonald can also be heard featured in records with artists like Grizzly Bear and Thundercat.
