Early life and career

Sager was born in Manhattan to Anita Nathan Bayer and Eli Bayer.[1] Her family was Jewish.[2] She graduated from New York University, where she majored in English, dramatic arts and speech. She had already written her first pop hit, "A Groovy Kind of Love", with Toni Wine, while still a student at New York City's High School of Music and Art.[3] It was recorded by the British invasion band the Mindbenders, whose version was a worldwide hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. This song was later recorded by Sonny & Cher, Petula Clark, and Phil Collins, whose rendition for the film Buster reached number one in 1988. She also had a career as a singer, including her 1977 Australian number one single "You're Moving Out Today" which also reached Number 6 in the UK singles chart in June 1977.

Albums

Sager's first recording as a singer was the 1977 album Carole Bayer Sager, which included "You're Moving Out Today", a song which she co-wrote with Bette Midler and Bruce Roberts.[4] (Paul Buckmaster provided horn and string arrangements for the album). The album went platinum in Japan, Australia, and the United Kingdom. It was followed by ...Too in 1978 and a third and last album, co-produced by Burt Bacharach, entitled Sometimes Late at Night (1981), which included the single "Stronger Than Before", later recorded by Dionne Warwick and Chaka Khan.

Songwriting

She had many hits during the seventies. With Marvin Hamlisch and Neil Simon, she wrote the lyrics for the stage musical They're Playing Our Song which was loosely based on her relationship with Hamlisch. The musical ran for over three years on Broadway. Many of Sager's 1980s songs were co-written with her former husband, the composer Burt Bacharach.[5] She executive-produced the eponymous solo album for June Pointer, of The Pointer Sisters, in 1989.

Sager has won an Academy Award (out of six nominations), a Grammy Award (out of nine nominations), and two Golden Globes (out of seven nominations). She was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1987. Sager won the Academy Award for Best Song in 1981 for "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)", which was the theme song of the movie Arthur.

Sager received the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1987 for the song "That's What Friends Are For", which she co-wrote with Bacharach. This song was originally written for the movie Night Shift (1982), and it was recorded for this movie by Rod Stewart. This song was popularized in a 1986 cover version by Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, and Elton John. Her song with David Foster, "The Prayer" originally recorded by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli, won the Golden Globe and is one of few songs to be sung at weddings and funerals alike. She was rewarded a Star on the "Hollywood Walk of Fame and an induction into :"The Songwriters Hall of Fame"

Along with Bruce Roberts and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Carole Bayer Sager helped write the song, "Stronger Together" sung by Jessica Sanchez.[6] The song was played after Hillary Clinton's speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. The song's title is named after the slogan that the Clinton campaign uses as a show of uniting behind the Democratic nominee. The song is currently #5 on the Billboard Dance Charts this week. (November 7th) [7] The song was widely perceived as positive by the listeners, and even received praise by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez[8] and Kim Kardashian.[9]

Sager is also an artist. Her first solo art show was in March 2011 at the L.A. Arthouse in Los Angeles. Her second show ran for two months at the William Turner Gallery in Bergamot Station, Los Angeles, in 2012. Her third show "New Works" ran from Sept-November at William Turner Gallery in Los Angeles.

Philanthropy

Sager has served for the last five years as a trustee of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

She created a series of PSAs to promote the organization, with animations voiced by Bette Midler, Claire Danes, Sidney Poitier, and Morgan Freeman.
