NEW YORK (AP) — Friends and admirers of Marvin Hamlisch including Bill Clinton and Ann-Margret gathered Tuesday in New York City to bid farewell to the celebrated songwriter hailed as "the people's composer."
Clinton called Hamlisch, whose casket was covered in yellow flowers, a "great, giving genius." Howard Stringer, head of Sony, called him "the merriest of minstrels."
Hamlisch died Aug. 6 in Los Angeles at age 68.
Hamlisch composed or arranged hundreds of scores for musicals and movies, including "A Chorus Line" on Broadway and the films "The Sting," ''Sophie's Choice," ''Ordinary People" and "The Way We Were."
His funeral was held at Congregation Emanu-El, a prominent synagogue where George Gershwin's funeral was held in 1937.

Ok.. well at least now I know it's true. Saturday there was an "interview" "live" between Marvin and a Philly radio personality from Temple University. I was real confused as she was saying she was talking to him over the phone and not using it in a past tense sort of way. Thank you again for bringing truth into my world!
