Few other individuals can claim to have fingerprints on more major moments in all of popular music than David Foster. In fact, he and his perfect pitch have 16 Grammy® Awards, an Emmy Award, and a Golden Globe to prove it.
One of the most illustrious composers of our time, Foster created hit songs and award-winning gold and platinum albums for a diverse array of artists, including Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and Madonna. He has escorted singers who have straddled both pop and classical styles like Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban into the mainstream. He has created culture-defining soundtracks for blockbuster films like The Bodyguard, Urban Cowboy, and St. Elmo’s Fire; and crafted timeless holiday classics, including perennial best-sellers like Michael Buble’s Christmas, Rod Stewart’s Merry Christmas Baby, and Mary J. Blige’s A Mary Christmas.
For his remarkable work, Foster has also racked up three Oscar nominations for “Best Original Song,” and been rewarded with professional honors, including being inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame in 2002, The Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2007, both Canadian and U.S. Songwriters Halls of Fame. In 2013, he continued to round out his awards with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame.
