Carole Bayer Sager: Music as Prayer

Apr 1, 2018

Oprah sits down with Carole Bayer Sager, the Grammy-, Golden Globe- and Oscar-winning singer/songwriter and painter, to discuss her legendary career. Carole shares the stories behind some of her biggest songs, including "That's What Friends Are For" and "The Prayer." One of the most prolific writers in pop history, Carole has worked with numerous legendary performers, such as Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion and Stevie Wonder. In her memoir, "They're Playing Our Song," Carole reflects on her spiritual journey both in and out of the recording studio, including her decadelong marriage to, and painful divorce from, composer and singer Burt Bacharach. She opens up about how her mother's harsh criticism of her weight led to lifelong emotional insecurity. Nevertheless, Carole says she found healing in her songwriting and believes that her life's purpose has always been to touch others' hearts through her work and to help them feel connected and less alone.
