The Hitman Tour: An Intimate Evening with David Foster!

As a studio musician, arranger, and recording artist, Foster is one of the most successful songwriters and record producers in history- shepherding albums that have collectively sold in the hundreds of millions.

Few other individuals can claim to have their fingerprints on more major moments in all of popular music than David Foster. He has created hit songs and award-winning gold and platinum albums for a diverse array of artists including Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Andrea Bocelli, Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Michael Bolton, Seal, Chaka Khan, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Chicago, Hall & Oates, Brandy, ’N Sync, Boz Scaggs, and Gloria Estefan. He has escorted singers who have straddled both pop and classical styles like Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban into the mainstream. He has created culture-defining soundtracks for blockbuster films like The Bodyguard, Urban Cowboy, and St. Elmo’s Fire.

For his remarkable work, Foster has won 16 Grammy Awards, including three for Producer of the Year, an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe, and racked up three Oscar nominations for “Best Original Song.” He has also earned a reputation as a keen spotter of new talent, playing a key role in the discovery and career launches of Celine Dion, Josh Groban, and Michael Bublé. Foster has also been rewarded with professional honors, including being inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame in 2002, The Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2007, The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010, and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in the U.S., also in 2010. In 2013, Foster received his star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame.

 

Katharine McPhee

Renowned for her powerhouse presence and show-stopping performances, Katharine McPhee possesses a voice for the ages.

Audiences first fell under the chanteuse’s spell during a storied run on American Idol Season 5 in 2006. Propelled by the smash “Over It,” her 2007 self-titled debuted bowed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and achieved an RIAA gold certification. 2010 saw her return with not one, but two records – Unbroken and Christmas is the Time To Say I Love You. Simultaneously, she became a force on the big and small screens. McPhee co-starred alongside Debra Messing on Smash from executive producer Steven Spielberg as well as guest appearances on CSI: NY, Community, Family Guy, and more. Meanwhile, she starred in various films. A sought-after performer, she has taken stage for PBS specials — including her own special — Soundstage: Katharine McPhee, and Foster and Friends.

In the Fall 2017, McPhee reimagined, recharged, and reinvigorated a host of timeless jazz standards on her fifth full-length, I Fall in Love Too Easily [BMG] produced by Don Was [The Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt].

She has recently wrapped her starring role in the CBS drama Scorpion, and starred on Broadway and London’s West End in the hit musical Waitress to much fan praise.
