Whilst at the wedding, he was introduced to David Foster, a record producer who had previously worked with Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Barbra Streisand.

Barbra Streisand has set a new world record with the release of her latest album.
It's not easy to be a pioneer in music nowadays, but Barbra Streisand seems to have managed it with the release of her thirty-sixth album 'Partners'. The record has debuted at the top spot on the US Billboard Chart, making Streisand the first singer to have a number one album in six consecutive decades.
Streisand (72) is continuing to break records in the music world
Her first album to reach the top spot was 'People' back in 1964, and she has gone on to have a further nine reach number one in the US, including her latest one. With her ten number one albums, she is now tied for fourth place with the most number one albums alongside Elvis Presley. Ahead of her are The Beatles (19), Michael Jackson (13) and Bruce Springsteen (11), but Streisand is still the most successful female artist. She has also scored six number ones in the UK album chart and thirteen in other countries. She has also achieved five number one singles, her last being 'Woman in Love' which was released in 1980.

The two Take That bandmates went head-to-head in the charts this weekend, with Robbie holding out for the No. 1 spot
It was like 1997 all over again this weekend, as Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow battled it out for the Number One spot on the UK Album Chart. Much like the battles of the mid-to-late nineties, it was Robbie who came out on top again, making him the last artist to top the album chart in 2013.
The Take That guys were fighting for the top spot yet again
Robbie's new big band album, Swing Both Ways, held on to the No. 1 spot for a second week, having emerged victorious from another closely fought contest from last week. It was One Direction who Robbie managed to beat to the No. 1 spot last week, with his latest album beating Midnight Memories to the top spot by just 200 copies. This time around it was a relatively more clear contest, with Swing Both Ways outselling Gary Barlow’s latest solo effort, Since I Saw You Last, by approximately 12,000 copies.

After 20 years, Mariah Carey is still the Queen of Christmas.
A testament to a good single is its longevity in the charts and it looks like Mariah Carey's Christmas classic, 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' could be well-placed for the best Christmas song of all time as sales of the 1994 track quickly approach one million copies in the United Kingdom.
The song is Mariah's biggest single to date, with an estimated 12 million copies sold worldwide, also making it one of the highest-selling songs of all time. However, upon its release in 1994, Mariah was pipped to the post in the charts by London boyband East 17 and their 'Stay Another Day.'
After selling a respectable 306,000 copies in six weeks, 'All I Want For Christmas.' dropped out of the top 40. Thanks to digital downloads and the song's firm reputation as a Christmas karaoke must-have, the heart-warming track returned to the Official Singles Chart some 13 years after its original release to peak at Number 4 and has similarly re-emerged every December since 2007, according to the Official Charts Company.
