COME WHAT MAY

This brilliant duet, sung by superstars Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, was recorded for the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack. The movie, directed by Baz Luhrmann, was a very successful modern-day musical.

GOODBYE

From ONE LIFE TO LIVE – The Best Of Love
Written by David Foster & Linda Thompson

“I miss Warren very, very much. To me, he was probably the greatest male singer I ever had the chance to work with. Céliné, Barbra, Natalie, they all fell in love with him and his talent. There was nothing he couldn`t do vocally. I wish I had done an album with him. Now I`ll never get the chance, but I will remember him forever.”

DREAM WEAVER

From THE DREAM WEAVER
Written by Gary Wright

There is an interesting tale about how “Dream Weaver” was included at the last minute on Gary Wright’s album of the same name. A ballot was created with another composition, “Empty Inside,” and it was David Foster’s decisive vote that included it on the album. If that’s the truth, Wright should thank Foster’s ear because “Dream Weaver,” a profound song about spiritual matters, became a Billboard #2 smash at the beginning of 1976.
