#NewYorkNotes #NormanGimbel #WhomWeMiss #WhomYouKnow @RecordingAcad RECORDING ACADEMY™ STATEMENT RE: NORMAN GIMBEL DEC. 28, 2018

GRAMMY® winner Norman Gimbel was a brilliant lyricist highly regarded by the music, film, television, and theater industries. He earned two GRAMMY nominations throughout his versatile career, both in the Song Of The Year category, and was awarded a GRAMMY for his contributions to Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly With His Song" at the 16th GRAMMY Awards®. His gift of songwriting lent itself to some of the most widely recognized television shows of the 1970s, including the theme songs to "Laverne & Shirley" and "Happy Days." The entertainment industry has lost an incomparable lyricist, and our thoughts go out to his loved ones during this difficult time.
