Charlie Midnight Co-Write On #1 Streisand Album
Round Hill Music’s Charlie Midnight reaches No. 1 on Billboard 200 charts
co-writer of “I Can Still See Your Face,” by Barbra Streisand
Round Hill Music is excited to announce that their writer Charlie Midnight’s “I Still Can See Your Face” is featured on the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 this week, Barbra Streisand’s Partners. Co-written with Jay Landers and Bernie Herms, the duet is performed by Streisand and Andrea Bocelli. Music industry veteran Midnight has been writing hit songs for over 30 years, since his first success with “Breakin’, Heart of the Beat” from the film Breakin’.
Charlie Midnight has been involved in the writing, conceptualization and production of albums throughout his career that have sold in excess of 50 million copies. His work has been heard on numerous Grammy-winning, Grammy-nominated recordings.
Midnight’s Grammy nomination for “Living in America,” one of the legendary James Brown’s biggest hits, earned him a storied place in music history in a career that has spanned over thirty years. Some of his other notable achievements have been: receiving a nomination for a Golden Globe Award for writing the song “Why Should I Worry,” sung by Billy Joel, for Disney’s “Oliver and Company”; a Golden Globe nomination for “A Woman Loves A Man,” sung by Joe Cocker from the Feature Film “Bull Durham”; and writing “How Do You Stop,” for “Turbulent Indigo,” the Joni Mitchell album that won the 1996 Grammy Award for Best Pop Album.
Midnight has had a chameleon-like career, working with a uniquely wide range of artists. The common denominator has been Midnight’s commitment to discovering the authenticity and honesty of the artist as well as staying true to himself as a writer. Midnight’s passion continues to guide him as he lives by his credo: To never look back and say “what if” but to look around and say “what now” and to look ahead and say “what next” and let the creating and the doing be an end in and of itself and most importantly to “let your passion fuel you.”
Because of his versatility as a writer and producer, Midnight has been privileged to write for and produce such notable and varied artists as: James Brown, Cher, Billy Joel, Joni Mitchell, Barbra Streisand, Andrea Bocelli, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jamey Johnson, Idina Menzel, Hilary Duff, Chaka Khan, Joe Cocker, The Doobie Brothers, Anastacia, John Waite, George Thorogood, Dan Hartman, and Paul Young, to name a few.
