In the mid-’70s McDonald was invited to join the Doobie Brothers as the band redefined their sound with McDonald serving as singer, keyboardist and songwriter on such Top 40 singles as “Takin’ It To The Streets,” “It Keeps You Runnin’,” “Minute By Minute” and “What A Fool Believes.”
Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, McDonald’s solo career took off with a string of hits including “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near),” “Sweet Freedom,” “On My Own” (with Patti LaBelle) and the Grammy-winning James Ingram duet “Yah Mo B There.” Plus, he co-wrote the Van Halen hit “I’ll Wait.”
McDonald has performed with a who’s who of critically acclaimed artists across a number of genres, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill and Grizzly Bear.
McDonald is set for the October 12 release of Season of Peace: The Christmas Collection on BMG. The album compiles McDonald’s most beloved Christmas recordings including “White Christmas/Winter Wonderland” (featuring Jonny Lang), “Oh Holy Night,” “Christmas on the Bayou” and “Children Go Where I Send Thee” (featuring Twinkie Clark), as well as a new version of “Winter Wonderland” featuring special guest Jake Shimabukuro. The album art hails from an original painting by McDonald himself.
In celebration of the new compilation record, McDonald is adding a number of winter performances to his current North American tour. Confirmed dates include two nights at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl with Kenny Loggins and Christopher Cross, as well as performances at New York’s South Street Seaport, Washington, D.C.’s Filene Center at Wolf Trap with Peter Cetera, St. Louis’ Loufest, the Cityfolk Festival in Ottawa and more.
