Michael McDonald and Chaka Khan at Ravinia Festival

Michael McDonald, a former Doobie Brothers frontman and Steely Dan collaborator, is known for his distinctive and ultra-smooth vocal style. He has won five Grammy Awards and has released nine solo albums. A younger generation of artists have embraced McDonald’s music in recent years, leading a groundswell of unexpected collaborations. Virtuoso bassist Thundercat recruited the singer (and Kenny Loggins) to co-write “Show You the Way,” a track on his 2017 LP, Drunk, which they performed together at the Coachella Festival. “[McDonald’s] singing is so specific, and it has so much depth,” Thundercat told the LA Times. “Michael is such a stark example of staying honest and open in your music.”

Chaka Khan is one of the world’s most gifted and celebrated musicians, and the 10-time Grammy Award winner has curated a rich musical legacy. A songwriter, actor, author, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and activist, Khan has influenced generations of recording artists. She has the rare ability to form-fit her voice across music genres, from R&B and gospel to pop, rock, and country to world music and classical. Affectionately known around the world as Chaka, she is revered by millions of fans as well as her peers for her timeless, classic, and unmatched signature music style and ability. Miles Davis often said, “[Chaka] sings like my horn,” and the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, said, “[Chaka] is a one-of-a-kind, premier vocalist.”
