The lyricist was highly decorated in terms of awards, receiving three Academy Awards, four Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and others throughout her career.

They worked with some of the best melodists in the world, including Marvin Hamlisch, Cy Coleman, and Michel Legrand, and were performed by some of the best singers in the world, from Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand to Aretha Franklin and Michael Jackson.

“If you really want to write original songs, that really speak to people, you have to feel that you created something that did not exist before, which is the greatest achievement, right?” Bergman told the outlet. “And to do something that wasn’t there before, you have to know what came before you.”
