Renowned music producer David Foster was born in Canada in 1949. He began his career as the keyboardist in Skylark in the early 1970s, achieving a top ten hit single with 'Wildflower'. After Skylark's demise, he formed Airplay with singer Jay Graydon before going on to collaborate with George Harrison on his album 'Extra Texture'.

He began co-writing and producing other artists' records, making a name for himself in Los Angeles. In the early days, he worked with Earth, Wind and Fire on 'I Am', winning the Grammy Award for Best R&B Song for 'After the Love Has Gone' in 1980. He went on to work with The Tubes, Chicago, Peter Cetera and Kenny Rogers in the 1980s, co-writing the hits 'Hard to Say I'm Sorry' and 'You're the Inspiration' for Chicago, 'Glory of Love' for Cetera and 'The Best of Me' for Rogers. In 1985 Foster wrote the score for 'St. Elmo's Fire', including the number one hit single of the same name sung by John Parr. Continuing the film work, he wrote music for 'The Secret of My Success' (1987), 'Stealing Home' (1988) and 'The Bodyguard' (1992), for which he penned the hit single 'I Have Nothing' for Whitney Houston.

In 1995 Foster launched his own record label, 143 Records, in association with Warner. Irish group The Corrs were one of 143's first artists along with Josh Groban and Michael Bublé. Foster returned to film scoring, writing the credit song 'I'll Make It Up As I Go' for the 2001 film 'The Score'. He regularly donates his time to charities, co-writing with his daughter Amy Foster-Gillies and Beyoncé the hit 'Stand Up for Love' for World Children's Day.
