He has won three Tony Awards, an Emmy and a Grammy, as well as being elected to both the Theatre Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Some of his most memorable songs include Tomorrow, Put On A Happy Face, Once Upon A Time and Maybe, from musicals such as Annie, Bye Bye Birdie and Applause.
