Leonard Cohen, David Foster and More to Be Inducted Into Hall of Fame


Leonard Cohen will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 17, joining David Foster, Earth Wind and Fire and other songwriters.

Leonard Cohen and producer/composer David Foster will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2010. The 75-year-old "Bird on the Wire" singer has endured a difficult few months after collapsing onstage in Spain in 2009 and postponing a string of European concerts in early February to recover from a sports-related injury, but he will be saluted by the prestigious organization this summer, when he joins Foster and Earth Wind and Fire's members Maurice White, Philip Bailey and Verdine White among the songwriting inductees.

Jackie DeShannon, Johnny Mandel, Larry Dunn and Al McKay will also be honored at the gala. Hall of Fame chairman Hal David says, "Our 2010 inductees are truly representational of the heart and soul of the world's popular music soundtrack. We are looking forward to another memorable evening, where we honor their extraordinary accomplishments."

The class of 2010 will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 17 during a ceremony in New York.
