Carole Bayer Sager, one of the most prolific and successful songwriters of our time, has had a hand in hits like “Nobody Does It Better,” “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” “Don’t Cry Out Loud” and “It’s My Turn.” Time and again, her music has tapped into the emotional themes for our lives.
So, how does she write music that touches people’s souls, Oprah asks Carole. “I’m just curious as to what you tap into to bring that kind of art that resonates with the world into a form that’s called songwriting?” Oprah asks.
Carole says she strives to create songs that are a healing experience. “I tried very much for my songs to have some ability to touch others and help them be in a better place than before they heard the song.”
In the above video, Carole shares the spiritual intention behind her songwriting process.
