Academy Award winner Hal David, the lyricist whose career spans hits from "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" to "Alfie" to "Close to You," was honored at New York's Friar's Club Sept. 13. David also provided the lyrics to the musical Promises, Promises and his hit songs were used in the ill-fated musical What the World Needs Now. Joining David are (left to right) Dionne Warwick (who sang his "What the World Needs Now"), Michelle Lee and Dina Merrill.
