David Foster is the man behind many singers' success in the musical field. Not only is he talented and composes his own music, he's a step ahead of Simon Cowell in discovering new talents. It's difficult not to like this man who has given us so many great hits from days of St. Elmo's Fire to the recent I Will Be There With You.
Let me introduce you to some of his awesome compositions & then we'll take a tour of his prodigies. Before we do that, know that David is a Canadian and hence his search for talent possibly coincidentally comes from Canada too. In any case, it doesn't quite matter where they come from. Instead, it's of utmost important where they will head!
As for those whose lives will never be the same again ever since they met Foster, there are so many of them but I'll just mention a few whom I truly like.
Josh Groban Josh Groban is phenomenal and one of the best finds Foster could ever come up with. I've written a review on Josh Groban some time ago so if you're interested in finding out more, do take a look!
Here's a pretty humorous video on Josh Groban & Michael Buble who are reversing their roles by singing one another's tunes.
Michael Buble has indeed progressed a lot from his first CD. As Foster claimed, we all have no idea of the magnitude of his talent. I am not that fond of jazz but Michael Buble has certainly brought jazz to life as far as I'm concerned. What a great singer!
Charice is a Filipina singer who appeared on Oprah & was later introduced to David Foster who took her under his wing. A 'Foster' child. Charice did get famous via Youtube though.
As for David Foster, not only is he talented, we can all see that he enjoys live performances as much as he enjoys his own music and his prodigies. Great man! Life has never been the same again since I got hooked on music since childhood!
