NEWS RELEASE
The Recording Academy® Statement re: Robert Sherman
March 7, 2012

GRAMMY®-winning composer/songwriter Robert Sherman has crafted some of the most timeless and instantly recognizable songs of all time. Along with his brother Richard, he composed scores for such legendary films as Charlotte’s Web, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, Winnie The Pooh, and many more. Perhaps most notably, they wrote one of the most recognized songs on the planet, “It’s A Small World.” His work will forever live in the hearts of children as well as adults for many generations to come, and our deepest sympathies go out to his family, his friends, and the child in all of us.
