David Foster has been very successful in the music business for decades...composing and producing with top notch artists.Those collaborations have resulted in a star-studded tribute concert performed at the Mandalay Bay Center in Vegas;recorded this past May.
This is an exceptional event,hosted by David with great camerawork and sound.
Performances by Groban,Buble,Bocelli,Kenny G,Celine Dion,Brian McKnight,Boz Scaggs and Peter Cetera are both exciting and nostalgic....evoking memories
of groups like The 5th Dimension,Chicago and Earth,Wind and Fire.
David also presents wonderful younger talents he has discovered, including Katharine McPhee(my personal favorite),Michael Johns,Charice and Renee Olstead.
For fans of great music,this dvd/cd combo is a must!The McPhee/Bocelli duet of The Prayer,by itself, is worth the price of admission!

I absolutely loved this set. I never realized that David Foster had a hand in almost all of my favorite music and worked with so many artists from different musical genres. Love him or hate him, the guy is tremendously talented in his own right and definitely has the ability to recognize talent in others when he sees it. The duets are great, especially Josh Groban and Brian McKnight on Bridge Over Troubled Water, which is probably my favorite song of all time. The "Behind the Scenes" extra is amusing and insightful. I highly recommend this CD/DVD.

David Foster is by far one of the most prolific and under-celebrated composers, directors, producers of good, quality music of our generation. He has taken some of his best works (whether written or produced) and they have been performed by the people who made them famous. What a treat. All I can say is Bravo. More, please?

I thought the highlight of the DVD was Charice singing the tunes from the movie - The Bodyguard - that Whitney Houston did. I have never heard anyone come close to Whitney's version until Charice sang on this DVD.

This is a well produced CD with many songs of various artist and the DVD reinforces what a great producer of music that David Foster is.

The DVD is wonderful.However, I should have read the detail since I expected all the songs to be on the CD. Instead only 9 songs were on the CD and everything else was on the DVD. If I could play the DVD in my car that would have helped.

Became familiar with David Foster after watching Andrea Bocellli's DVD "Under The Desert Sky" as well as "Live in Tuscany" (both in my music library). Fascinating to learn the vital part David has been instrumental in promoting music with many of my favorite singng and instrumental artists. A very talented and gifted man with the foresight to see the potential in new singers today. After watching Hitman DVD, have been introduced to Brian McKnight, Michael Johns, Michael Buble, William Joseph, Blake Shelton, Boz Scaggs, Charice and Babyface Edmonds and have added some of these artists CD's to my listening library. Long time fan of Peter Cetera. Hitman has such a diverse selection of songs that anyone can enjoy listening time and time again.

What a remarkable career David Foster has had! I guess I never realized how influencial he was to so many careers. From Chicago to newly discovered Charice. A wonderful CD to listen to, sing along with and the wonderful bonus of the DVD! A great one for the variety of musical styles and entertainers. Definately one for your collection. I also put it on my ipod to have wherever I go.

David Foster has found talent that is truly a joy to listen to. I have only one suggestion: that he include more songs on the CD. There just wasn't enough....................

I enjoy David Foster's music so this CD was a must for me to purchase after I saw the PBS special. Great to listen to when you just want some background music. The accompaning DVD was an added plus.

First saw/heard this as a fund-raising promotion program on IPTV a few weeks ago. It was wonderful - Public TV always airs quality & they lived up to their tradition on this one. Through them, I ordered a combo package of the DVD and CD. Then, saw CD availability Barnes&Noble on-line; so ordered two more CD's Same title) as gifts! They're already given - and I've already received "praise and thanks" for the terrific taste I have in gifts. So, "Thank you David Foster for sharing your talent and that of your friends".

This is the best David Foster collection to date- even better than The Best of Me cd. The live performances are excellent. The duets are inspiring. The variety of music shows the versatility of David Foster over the years. I would recommend this to any music lover.

A BEAUTIFUL COMPILATION OF VOCALS, INSTRUMENTS AND PERFORMERS. DAVID FOSTER IS GIFTED!! SO BEAUTIFUL, I ORDERED FOUR (FOR MY SON, SISTERS & FRIEND), AFTER HAVING RECEIVED ONE FROM MY BROTHER. THAT GESTURE, COMING FROM HIM, WAS SPECIAL. HE LOVES BEAUTIFUL MUSIC BUT SENDING A GIFT BY MAIL IS NOT SOMETHING HE'S KNOWN TO HAVE DONE BEFORE.

I enjoyed the cd very much; however, was disappointed with the number of songs the cd had. Would have paid more for the entire songlist from the show. Have not watched the DVD yet.
