Jerry Livingston

Jerry Livingston 1909-1987(composer/lyricist) was born in Denver, Colorado. In 1932, he moved to New York City to try and "make it" in the music industry. Within a year he had written three hit songs and grew even more popular on the road in the midst of the Big Band craze. But when he married in 1940, he decided to quit the touring life and focus on a career in songwriting. He joined songwriters Mack David and Al Hoffman in the late 1940s to write the music for Disney's CINDERELLA. His efforts earned him an Oscar® nomination for the song "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo". He went on to earn two more Academy Award® nominations in collaboration with Mack David for "The Hanging Tree" in 1959 and "The Ballad of Cat Ballou" in 1965. His peers elected him to the Songwriters' Hall of Fame in 1980.
