To say that everything David Foster touches turns to gold-and usually platinum-would be an understatement. This stunningly talented songwriter is a 15-time Grammy Award winner with an unprecedented 46 nominations, a recipient of seven Juno Awards, an Emmy Award in 2004 and a three-time Oscar nominee, all over the course of four extraordinarily successful decades.

Foster's career path soared in the 1980's as he produced and wrote an extraordinary lineup of No. 1 singles, including Chicago's "Hard To Say I'm Sorry," Peter Cetera's "The Glory of Love," and John Parr's "Man in Motion" (St. Elmo's Fire soundtrack). In 2007 he was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Foster has worked with the biggest and best talents in the music industry, including Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Barbra Streisand, Michael Buble', Seal, Earth, Wind & Fire, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and many more. Iconic songs in the Foster catalog include "After The Love Is Gone," "I Have Nothing," "Look What You've Done To Me," "The Prayer" and "You're The Inspiration."

Foster recently produced two top ten albums on the Billboard Top 200 Chart - Michael Buble' ("Crazy Love") and Andrea Bocelli ("My Christmas”).
