“So how do you become a record producer?” During the course of his career, David Foster has been asked that question time and time again, and while his answer might change, depending on the situation, the thought bubble over his head is always the same: “If you have to ask how to become a record producer, you’ll never be one.”

Expounding on this sentiment, the Canadian-born multiple Grammy winner and Oscar nominee explains that, while his own career path took a series of twists and turns, he was always set on being a musician. “How or in what capacity, I wasn’t quite sure,” he says...

It’s a tough crowd in Phoenix, but when they like you, they really, really like you.

And they showered their love onto Reba McEntire and Rita Wilson (along with Tom Hanks via telephone) during the extended live auction section of Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XIX held on March 23 at the J. W. Marriott Desert Ridge Resort. At the champ’s annual fundraiser that supports his Parkinson Center and a host of other charities, the deep-pocketed crowd bid $400,000 — twice — to have dinner with them at Reba’s Beverly Hills manse.



 

Two thousand people packed the ballroom, vying to throw money at the cause after being treated to the bluegrass pickings of Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers and witnessing the 71-year-old Ali walking acr...

Long before manufactured pop era groups such as Il Divo and Bond began blurring the lines between contemporary and classical music, lured by the juicy financial opportunity, Andrea Bocelli was crossing musical boundaries — just because he can.

While he’s hardly shunned the trappings (Bocelli is frequently cited as the biggest-selling classical artist alive today) for the Tuscan, music is its own reward and his fame not something he takes for granted.

“Showing off is an ‘intellectual accident’ that I steer clear of,” Bocelli told tabloid!, in an extensive email interview ahead of his performance in Abu Dhabi on Friday. “Today, as at the beginning of my career, music is a dream I cannot give up...

Earlier this month Josh Groban’s “All That Echoes” knocked Justin Bieber’s new album out of the top spot on the Billboard 200, and that’s not the crooner’s only incursion into territory normally reserved for pop stars.

The crossover artist’s latest release features material by Stevie Wonder and Jimmy Webb, while a deluxe edition available at Target adds Groban’s take on the Dave Matthews Band’s frat-house staple “Satellite.” The album’s producer? Rob Cavallo of Green Day and Adam Lambert fame.

“Rob told me, ‘Make your wheelhouse bigger. You have more in you than you think you do,'” Groban, 31, said recently over coffee in West Hollywood.
