JAMES HORNER (1953-2015)
As many of you know, composer James Horner died in a plane crash on June 22nd, at the age of 61. He scored over 100 films–and won two Oscars (Best Original Score & Best Song) for “Titanic” in 1997. This week, we’ll look back at the career of James Horner—from “Battle Beyond the Stars” to “Avatar”.
