American singer and songwriter Michael McDonald has developed a loyal fan following thanks in part to his uniquely soulful baritone voice, lauded for its richness. His career spans more than three decades, earning him five Grammy Awards with an illustrious body of musical output that he continues to release. His most recent album Soul Speak was released in 2008, peaking within the Billboard 200’s top 20.
McDonald’s career started with the critically acclaimed bands Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers, touring with the former and becoming a full-time member of the latter. During his time with The Doobie Brothers, the band would go on to experience tremendous success with singles like “Takin’ It to the Streets” and the chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning “What a Fool Believes”. After leaving the band, McDonald would go on to even greater success, recording several top ten hits including the number one duet “On My Own” featuring singer Patti LaBelle.
Fans of Michael McDonald can currently catch him touring the country performing some of his material interspersed with familiar and original holiday-themed tunes during his “Michael McDonald: This Christmas – An Evening of Holiday & Hits”. The show is coming to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood later this month on Thursday, December 17th. Previous reviews have complimented the balance of McDonald’s songs and holiday classics like “White Christmas”, as well as his interaction with the audience.
