Desmond Child is the only songwriter to have #1 Hits in 6 Decades!
Hard work and Persistance
Ever wondered about the real story behind “Livin on a Prayer”? What about “Livin La Vida Loca”? Ava Max’s current hit “Kings & Queens”? Desmond’s songwriting is responsible for sales of over 500 million records sold, and well over a billion streams. That’s pretty unbelievable if you ask me.
And guess what? Desmond is closing out the fall “Live From MusicRow411” series on Wednesday, October 28th at 7pm. You can reserve your spot for this fantastic conversation and songwriting insights here : YES! RESERVE MY SPOT!
Desmond is living proof everything old is new again. This month he and Rouge just released their remastered classic albums “DESMOND CHILD & ROUGE” and “RUNNERS IN THE NIGHT” on BMG Rights.
As a songwriter, he’s written with the biggest stars of the times past and present, evidenced by Ava Max’s#1 Euro Airplay hit “Kings & Queens”. You can’t go anywhere without someone singing “Livin on A Prayer”. Even Sunday Night Football is using his “I Hate Myself for Loving You” (originally a hit for Joan Jett) with re-written lyrics for footballsung by Carrie Underwood.
A member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he serves on its Board of Directors as well as the Board of ASCAP. In 2018 he received ASCAP’s prestigious Founders Award celebrating 40 years as a proud member of ASCAP. Along with songwriter-producer Rudy Pérez he co-founded the Latin Songwriters Hall Of Fame where he serves as Chairman Emeritus.
He wrote and co-produced “Lady Liberty” on Barbra Streisand’s latest album “WALLS,” and also released his new album DESMOND CHILD LIVE in October 2019 on BMG Rights. Child is released a new single “Viva La Diva” featuring reality star Countess Luann from Bravo’s The Real Housewives Of New York City featured on the season finale.He recently completed his autobiography LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER: BIG SONGS BIG LIFE with David Ritz.
