Who's the only man ever to write songs for Barbra Streisand, Warren Beatty, John Travolta, and Kermit the Frog? That would be Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winning Hall of Fame songwriter and ASCAP President and Chairman of the Board, Paul Williams. Paul sits down with director Stephen Kessler (Paul Williams: Still Alive) to discuss his amazing career. There might even be a little singing as well.
Recognized as one of America's most prolific and gifted lyricists and composers, Paul's standards have been recorded by such diverse musical icons as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, David Bowie, Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughn, Sarah McLachlan, Johnny Mathis, Jason Mraz, The Carpenters, Luther Vandross, Willie Nelson, REM, Diamond Rio, Anne Murray, Gladys Knight, Diana Ross, Diana Krall, The Dixie Chicks, The Scissor Sisters, Gonzo, and Kermit The Frog.
