An award-winning songwriter with a history of hits stretching from the mid-1960s until the early 21st century, Carole Bayer Sager wrote or co-wrote such enduring songs as "Don't Cry Out Loud," "Nobody Does It Better," "Arthur's Theme (The Best That You Can Do)" and countless other polished, emotionally driven pop and adult contemporary songs. A former staff writer for Don Kirshner's Screen Gems publishing company, she scored her first hit, the Mindbenders' "A Groovy Kind of Love," while still a teenager, before forming successful partnerships with such songwriters and composers as Peter Allen, Melissa Manchester and Marvin Hamlisch. With her second husband, Burt Bacharach, Sager won the Oscar for "Arthur's Theme" and co-wrote "That's What Friends Are For," an enormously profitable charity single for AIDS research. Sager continued to generate award-nominated hits well into the 21st century while maintaining a second career as a philanthropist for medical and educational charities. Her vast and celebrated body of work made Carole Bayer Sager one of the most notable pop composers of the 20th and 21st centuries.
