Legendary pop music composer and songwriter Burt Bacharach has died at age 94.
A statement from Bacharach’s representative says he died February 8 of natural causes.
Bacharach is best known for the radio hits and pop standards he crafted with the late lyricist Hal David, including the Dionne Warwick hits “Do You Know the Way to San Jose,” “I’ll Say a Little Prayer,” “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” and others, as well as the Oscar-winning “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” for B.J. Thomas.
Other artists who made hits of Bacharach compositions include Dusty Springfield, Frank Sinatra, The Carpenters, Bobby Gentry, Tom Jones, Herb Alpert and many others.
Bacharach is the recipient of three Oscars, two Golden Globes and eight Grammys, including the 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award, which he shared with Hal David. He and David also were awarded the 2012 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize recognition of their lifetime achievements in popular music.
