Famed singer-songwriter Michael McDonald served as the musical guest on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. McDonald previewed his upcoming “Home Alone 2 — Birthday Bash: A Party Of One” livestream concert by performing “What A Fool Believes.”

McDonald went solo for his remote performance on last night’s Kimmel, though he was aided by pre-recorded backing tracks. “What A Fool Believes” was co-written by Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. The chart-topping hit was released by The Doobie Brothers on their 1979 studio album, Minute By Minute.

“Home Alone 2 — Birthday Bash: A Party Of One” premieres via Mandolin this Friday, February 12 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Look for Michael McDonald to perform “more hits, covers and a couple Valentine’s day songs” as per an announcement of the livestream.
