Michael McDonald to Perform at the Center for the Arts

By  | 

When it comes to singer-songwriters, there are few who rival Michael McDonald. Known for his distinctive, soulful voice, McDonald will be performing at the legendary Center for the Arts in Escondido. This is truly the moment you’ve been waiting for – to witness a legend like McDonald make his triumphant return. The “Blue-eyed soul” vocalist and musician will hit the stage on October 8, 2019, at 7:30 pm.

McDonald debuted his signature jazz and R&B sound in tandem with the Doobie Brothers. Following the release of his Grammy-winning record “What a Fool Believes,” McDonald launched his solo career, with songs like “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Here)” peaking on the Billboard Hot 100. 

McDonald has collaborated with a number of successful artists like Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Toto, Kenny Loggins, and Christopher Cross. In addition to his original material, McDonald went on to add his own stylistic rendition to the works of great artists like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and a variety of other stars from the Motown era in his ultimate collection. 

His solo career spans the release of nine studio albums and a number of singles, but for the first time since 2000, McDonald is releasing a brand new set of all-original material, titled Wide Open. This album is a true testament to the singer’s immeasurable talent, and this time, his material is fiercer and fresher than ever. Wide Open is set to be a project that will continue to carry on the legacy of McDonald as a true master of his craft. The time has finally come for him to reclaim his rightful spot in the solo spotlight.
