David Walter Foster, OC, OBC (born November 1, 1949), is a Canadian musician, record producer, composer, singer, songwriter and arranger, noted for discovering successful singers Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Charice and Michael Bublé and for producing some of the most successful artists in the world.
Foster was born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. David’s cousin, Billy Foster, died in a race car accident in 1967.
Foster has been married three times, has five biological daughters, an ex-stepdaughter, and two ex-stepsons. His first marriage was to singer/writer B.J. Cook. She already had a daughter Tamre Winger, and together B.J. Cook and Foster had one daughter, Amy Foster (b. July 29, 1973), a songwriter who has collaborated with classic artists in the 2000s such as Andrea Bocelli, Michael Bublé, and Josh Groban.
His second wife was former model Rebecca Dyer. They had three daughters: Sara Foster (b. August 24, 1981), Erin Foster (b. August 24, 1983), and Jordan Foster (b. September 1986). As of May 2008, Sara was engaged to tennis player Tommy Haas. Foster revealed on the show that he also had a daughter, Allison Jones (b. April 6, 1970), from a previous relationship.
Foster married third wife Linda Thompson on June 27, 1991, and the two became a songwriting team, collaborating on several songs including “I Have Nothing” sung by Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard and “Grown-Up Christmas List”. Thompson filed for divorce Monday July 11, 2005, the day after her short-lived reality series, The Princes of Malibu premiered. Thompson is the mother of Brody Jenner and Brandon Jenner from her previous marriage to Bruce Jenner.
Foster’s sister, producer Jaymes Foster, is the mother of Clay Aiken’s son Parker Foster Aiken.
In 1992, David Foster was driving on the Pacific Coast Highway when his car struck actor Ben Vereen, who had been on the road because he had crashed his car and was in a daze. Despite being thrown 90 feet, Vereen survived. Vereen also went on record to say that it probably saved his life: he had a serious drinking problem caused by the death of his daughter.
On the May 11, 2010 episode of Oprah, Foster revealed that Charice gave him a letter asking him to be her godfather, and he accepted.
