After four decades, 45 nominations and 15 Grammy wins, David shares his memorable stories in his new book, Hitman: Forty Years Making Music, Topping the Charts and Winning Grammys, and DVD/CD, Hit Man: David Foster and Friends.
Some of music’s biggest stars, including Céline Dion and Barbra Streisand, send in their messages of love and appreciation for the incredible songwriter.
Forty Years of Hit-Making
David’s hits are ingrained in our musical culture. There’s even an official reference to the “David Foster Sound.” His music career started when his mother realized her 4-year-old son had perfect pitch.
David tells his life story and introduces his loving family.
Inside the Studio
David collaborated with three-time Grammy-winner Seal on his new CD, Soul. Dr. Phil joins David and Seal inside the recording studio, and gets a front-row seat while they perform.
“It moved me.”
Longtime friend, Hall of Fame singer/songwriter and actor, Paul Anka makes a surprise appearance for David. He hands David some sheet music and performs his song “My Way,” with lyrics re-written for David.
Singer/songwriter and eight-time Grammy winner, Natalie Cole, performs “Nice & Easy” from her CD, Still Unforgettable, available in stores now. Tune in to see this exclusive performance!
