from LOVE LIGHTS THE WORLD
Written by David Foster & Janet Gretzky
In the spring of 1994, David Foster starred in a couple of Japanese concerts in Tokyo and Osaka to celebrate his glorious career. Those shows featured Celine Dion, Peabo Bryson, Japanese music star Anri, Color Me Badd, Jay Graydon and the late Warren Wiebe (1953-1998). Their performances of Foster’s most famous repertoire were backed by an all-star band directed by Foster who also performed on piano with Lee Sklar playing bass, Michael Thompson strumming his guitar, Chester Thompson on drums, the Jerry Hey horns and William Ross conducting the orchestra. Those special concerts resulted in a 90 minute TV special aired on Japanese TV.
