Loved it! Watched it twice in 2 days!
30 July 2020 | by becneilsenSee all my reviews

Ok David Foster is arrogant. Yep he's not a great father and he's been a TERRIBLE husband. BUT he is a musical genius! You cannot deny that. How strange that viewers stopped watching because they thought he was too arrogant?! I did not watch the doco to see a humble man...I watched it to see the life story of a musical genius, and I loved it! His life is absolutely fascinating. I took a walk through my childhood as I listened to the songs he has produced. I forgot just how amazing Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You is... And to hear how it was created is phenomenal. The doco was made extremely well, interwining the music David created with the story of his life. Interviews by the people he "found" and worked with was also fascinating.

I loved this documentary and highly recommend. Don't go in there expecting to see a humble man. Go in there with the expectation only of looking at one man's life and the music he made. You will not be disappointed!
