Festival season got an early start over the weekend with Florida’s Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival. The second annual event once again saw the return of the PoWoW! mashup collaboration — essentially Okeechobee’s answer to Bonnaroo’s Superjam — which was led this time by yacht rock great Michael McDonald. After finishing her own set an hour earlier, Solange fulfilled a bit of a dream by joining McDonald to perform The Doobie Brothers‘ “What a Fool Believes”.

“Anyone who knows me knows that the doobie brothers are my musical/harmonic/chord change hero’s,” Solange wrote on an Instagram video of the performance, “and that I listen to ‘it keeps you running’ everyday for encouragement. that was fun michael.”
