AL KASHA

An Oscar-winning Al Kasha is one of those rare artists who, as a composer/lyricist, has had hit records over the last five decades, starting in the sixties and continuing into the present, ranging from Elvis Presley to Aretha Franklin to Helen Reddy to Sherrie Austin to Donna Summer.

 He has been awarded two Oscars and had two other Academy Award nominations for his critically acclaimed work in films.

His first Academy Award for Best Song was for “The Morning After” from “The Poseidon Adventure,” and his second for “We May Never Love Like This Again” from “The Towering Inferno.” Two additional nominations came from the Live-Action Animated Walt Disney classic “Pete’s Dragon,” which is now a platinum best selling home video. He also received Tony nominations for his work on “Seven Brides For Seven Brothers,” and the musical, “David Copperfield.” In addition, he has received two Grammy nominations, an Emmy, four Golden Globe nominations and the coveted People’s Choice Award.
