The ultimate HITMAN, David Foster is embarking on a quest to find his next vocal superstar, in conjunction with the 2009 North American HITMAN, DAVID FOSTER & FRIENDS TOUR. The 15-time Grammy Award Winner, Emmy winning songwriter / producer and three-time Oscar nominee has partnered with NAMEDROP.COM to present the HITMAN Talent Search, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be discovered by one of the music industriesâ€™ giants.
