Statement by President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Marvin Hamlisch

New York, NY

“Hillary and I were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our friend Marvin Hamlisch. From his earliest years, Marvin always used his unique gifts to define and redefine the landscape of American music. All along the way, he shared those gifts to help causes and people he believed in. For the last twenty years we were honored by his friendship and generosity. His legacy will live on for future generations of composers and musicians inspired by his work. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.”
