Michael McDonald, whose career has covered pop music with the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan as well as a recent foray into the Motown classics, will appear with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra on Friday and Saturday, March 10-11, at Robinson Center Music Hall.

Both Pops, Live! series shows begin at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $16 to $75 and are available through the ASO box office by calling 666-1761.

McDonald’s husky, soul-laced baritone voice gained national prominence in the late 1970s when he joined the Doobie Brothers and added a pop flair with such songs as “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute” and the Grammy Award-winning “What a Fool Believes.” After leaving the Doobies for a solo career, he charted with “On My Own,” “Yah Mo B There” and “Sweet Freedom.” His “Motown” CD — covers of hits by such R&B acts as Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye — went platinum.

McDonald is right at home singing gospel, ballads and Memphis-style soul.

McDonald will appear in Fayetteville at the Walton Arts Center on Thursday (March 9) at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $45 to $75. Call 479-443-5600.
