Celebrating September, David Foster & Friends

Sunday, September 23, 2018

As we watch today's innovative technology unite the world it seems that the hearts of men are growing more distant from each other. It is my hope that music will continue to tie past to future, reminding us of the love that unites us to our ancestors, to our descendants and to each other.  Maurice White 

The brilliant jazz musician founder of Earth Wind & Fire, Maurice White, created a 70s pop sound that was new and that bridged the multicultural soul, funk, gospel, blues, jazz and rock and roll gap that too often separated the musical tastes of America. He created a sound that conveyed messages of universal love and harmony.

Today's Sunday Morning Stop at the Intersection of Science, Art, Music and Humanities also celebrates the chairman of Verve Music Group, David Foster, the Canadian record producer humanitarian, who is also a composer, songwriter and arranger.

Foster has won 16 Grammy awards and produced for Andrea Bocelli, Toni Braxton, Michael Buble, Chicago, Natlie Cole, Celine Dion, Kenny G, Josh Groban, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Seal, Rod Steward, Madonna, Michael Boulton and Barbra Streisand. His PBS fundraising specials titled "David Foster & Friends" have been some of the highest rated pledge shows of the last decade and are viewed by millions.

The David Foster Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial support for non-medical expenses to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants.

David Foster truly is a difference-maker with high impact.
