As described by Forbes, a global media focusing on business, investing, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership, and lifestyle, in 2016, “Almost anyone young or old recognizes who Barbara Streisand, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Whitney Houston or Frank Sinatra is. Many don’t know however who wrote or produced the music and lyrics that made their performances come to life...... we really only remember the composers from music history. Most everyone with a little bit of music education knows who Bach, Beethoven or Chopin is. One would however need to be a devotee to know the celebrity performers who actually played or sang their music during their lifetimes..... “. David Foster should be remembered beyond generations.
