The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor song writer Hal David with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, October 14, at 11:30 a.m. in front of The Musicians Institute at 6752 Hollywood Boulevard.   

In conjunction with the star ceremony Hal David will be honored with a musical tribute entitled “Love Sweet Love” in celebration of his 90th birthday, Monday, October 17th at the Mark Taper Forum benefitting The Blue Ribbon of the Music Center and The ASCAP Foundation.

'Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on my Head', 'This Guy’s in Love With You' and 'I'll Never Fall in Love Again' are just three of the hits in a string of standards written by Academy Award-winning lyricist Hal David.   'Raindrops', which was in the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, garnered an Oscar; “Don’t Make Me Over”, “Close to You” and “Walk on By” are all in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

'What The World Needs Now is Love” was proclaimed “The Towering Song” by the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2004, distinguished by its unforgettable melody and prayerful plain-spoken words that sound utterly contemporary today when conflict is so wide-spread around the world, even though it was written in 1965.

In addition, 'What's New Pussycat', 'Alfie' and 'The Look of Love' received Oscar nominations.

Among Hal David's million-sellers, all of which have become Pop standards, are 'Do You Know the Way to San Jose', 'Walk on By', 'What The World Needs Now is Love', “I Say a Little Prayer”, “(There’s) Always Something There to Remind Me”, “One Less Bell To Answer” and “To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before”.
