David Foster is one of the most successful record producers in history, creating albums that have collectively sold in the hundreds of millions. He is also a musician, songwriter, composer, arranger, and recording artist, whose drive for perfection and greatness is the reason why the world’s greatest superstars like Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Andrea Bocelli, Michael Buble, Josh Groban and Stevie Wonder, have trusted him with their voices.
Indeed, few other songwriters and producers have had their fingerprints on more major moments in all of popular music. Foster has created hit songs and award-winning gold and platinum albums for a diverse array of artists including Earth, Wind & Fire, Natalie Cole, Michael Bolton, Seal, N’SYNC, Boz Scaggs and Gloria Estefan. He has also propelled singers who have straddled both pop and classical styles like Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban into the mainstream. Adding to that Foster’s soundtrack work for culture-defining movies like The Bodyguard, Urban Cowboy and St Elmo’s Fire – his influence on popular music and culture cannot be overstated.
For his illustrious work, Foster has won 16 Grammy Awards, including 3 for Producer of the Year, an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and racked up 3 Oscar nominations for Best Original Song. In June 2010, he was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame, and in May 2013 Foster received his star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame.
