Bacharach died Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles of natural causes, his publicist, Tina Brausam, told The Associated Press Thursday.

Bacharach was one of the most prominent composers in the 1960s and ’70s, writing several top 10 hits, including Dionne Warwick’s “I Say a Little Prayer” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose.”

He triumphed in many art forms. He was an eight-time Grammy winner, a prize-winning Broadway composer for “Promises, Promises” and a three-time Oscar winner. He received two Academy Awards in 1970, for the score of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and for the song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head.”
