Carole Bayer Sager performs at Feinstein's at the Regency. Sager's work is currently represented on Broadway in the musical The Boy From Oz, has written songs recorded by the top stars in the music industry including Frank Sinatra, Dolly Parton, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Melissa Manchester, Christopher Cross, Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, the Doobie Brothers, Gladys Knight, Roberta Flack, Johnny Mathis, Leo Sayer, Carly Simon, Bette Midler, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Patti LaBelle, Bob Dylan, Kenny Rogers and even Carole herself.
The lyricist constitutes one-half of one of the world's most successful songwriting teams, as she and partner, Burt Bacharach, have proven many times. They have enjoyed two number one songs, "On My Own," recorded by Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald, and "That's What Friends Are For." Records of both songs went gold. "That's What Friends Are For," recorded by Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder, also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the American Foundation for AIDS Research. "That's What Friends Are For" - nominated for Grammys for "Song of the Year" and "Record of the Year" in 1986 - was the number one song of the year.
