For his legendary work, Foster has won 16 GRAMMY Awards, including three for Producer of the Year, an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe, and was a three-time nominee for Best Original Song.

Apart from returning to the road, Foster is preparing for the release of his feature documentary on his life and career – David Foster: Off the Record.

Later this year, Foster’s new PBS special, An Intimate Evening with David Foster, will air nationwide as part of Great Performances on PBS. Foster is also gearing up to take on the Broadway stage with several projects including a new musical about the classic, animated character Betty Boop, along with writing the music for a musical based on the Amy Bloom novel and New York Times bestseller Lucky Us.

Foster is also known for his philanthropic efforts, creating The David Foster Foundation in 1986 and volunteering his time and talent to more than 400 charities. The David Foster Foundation’s mission is to provide financial support to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants, along with a new focus on organ donor awareness.
