On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Jan. 14

Lex de Azevedo was born on this day (1943). Son of one of the King Sisters, he composed the music for the popular musical and film, Saturday’s Warrior (1973) (book and lyrics by Douglas Stewart). The story, inspired by Nephi Anderson’s Added Upon (1898), follows a family throughout their premortal to mortal existences and beyond. De Azevedo has also been nominated for a Golden Globe and has served as musical director for The Sonny & Cher Show, and for the Jackson Five and the Osmonds. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lex_de_Azevedo
