Bacharach was known to work closely with Dionne Warwick but he also composed music for Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, and Tom Jones.
Countless artists such as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, and The White Stripes also covered his music.
Bacharach’s creations were well received and well rewarded.
He is an eight-time Grammy winner, a three-time Oscar winner, and, two Academy Awards and he also received Tony awards.
Bacharach was a frequent guest at the White House, whether the president was Republican or Democrat.
He vowed never to retire because he believed that a good song could make a difference.
“Music softens the heart, makes you feel something if it’s good, brings in emotion that you might not have felt before,” he told the AP in 2018. “It’s a very powerful thing if you’re able to do to it, if you have it in your heart to do something like that.”
