David Foster, the Canadian heart of gossip, brides again

David Foster, the Canadian heart of gossip, brides again It’s never too late. Just ask David Foster. Not only does the stellar Canadian songwriter/producer (16 Grammys! 47 noms!) turn 70 in 2019, he is getting married, too. For the fifth time! File under: events to watch for in the New Year. (Make room, royal Sussex baby.) Bride Five, as some of you may know, is Katharine McPhee, the American Idol alum who’s not only half Foster’s age, but is also someone who goes back some time with the man. Years before the perpetually boyish producer would pop the question, he actually played the piano at her first wedding, as the internet was only too kind to unearth. Gotta love love.

TORONTO - Music producer David Foster is set to be recognized at this year's Juno Awards for his philanthropic work.

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences says the Grammy Award-winning songwriter and composer will receive its 2019 humanitarian award.

The Victoria native will be honoured for his support of hundreds of charities, including the David Foster Foundation, which provides financial help to Canadian families in need of life-saving transplants.

The producer is known for his Miracle Gala and Concert fundraisers which draw some of the world's biggest celebrities to perform live in Canadian cities.

In a release, Foster says he created his foundation in 1986 after meeting a young girl from his hometown who was awaiting a liver transplant.

The Allan Waters Humanitarian Award will be presented to Foster at the Junos industry gala dinner and awards presentation on March 16 in London, Ont.

The Juno Awards telecast airs on Sunday, March 17.
