In the ’80s and ’90s, McDonald’s solo career took off with a string of hits including “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near)”, “On My Own” (with Patti LaBelle), and the Grammy-winning James Ingram duet “Yah Mo B There”. He also co-wrote the Van Halen hit “I’ll Wait”.McDonald has performed with a who’s-who of critically acclaimed artists including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill, ThunderCat and Grizzly Bear.
