On Michael McDonald-This Christmas: A Soundstage Special Event, Michael McDonald combines yuletide favorites such as “White Christmas” and the more modern Stevie Wonder Motown classic “What Christmas Means to Me” with a few of his signature hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” for a perfect blend of holiday cheer. On other classics like “Peace” and “Have Yourself a Merry Christmas,” McDonald is accompanied by strings, adding an entirely new dynamic to the diverse set. McDonald’s soulful, throaty baritone infuses the popular yuletide songs with a unique vocal styling that adds the perfect twist to everyone’s holiday season!
