About David Foster (12/6/2013)
Behind every great song is a great writer, producer, composer and arranger. But no one has left their mark on the industry quite like David Foster. He has worked with the crème de la crème of music, from the late Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson to current powerhouses Beyonce Knowles and Christina Aguilera. Trust us when we tell you, his resume is the stuff of legend.
Foster began studying the piano at age five, enrolled in the University of Washington's music program by the age of 13, and had a slot in a backing band just three years later. As a keyboardist he would appear on recordings from the likes of John Lennon, Barbra Streisand and Rod Stewart. And those were just Foster's warm-up acts.
You'd be hard-pressed to find someone Foster's production career hasn't touched. From Hall & Oates and Kenny Rogers to Lionel Richie and Chicago, Foster's success culminated in a Grammy for Producer of the Year in 1984 (for Chicago's smash single "Hard Habit to Break"). He later worked with Celine Dion, generating the hit "Have a Heart," and in 1992 collaborated with Whitney Houston on the multi-platinum soundtrack to her film "The Bodyguard," which earned him another Album of the Year Grammy award, with "I Will Always Love You" taking home Record of the Year.
Think we're done name-dropping yet? Think again. Foster's astounding run of success carries on. He helped to launch the careers of two of music's biggest names in Josh Groban and Michael Buble, and continues to garner awards and accolades at a dizzying pace. Thus far he is the recipient of some 16 Grammys from 47 nominations, undoubtedly with more to come.
