James Horner: Oscar-winning Titanic composer dies in crash
Composer JAMES HORNER died in a plane crash yesterday morning. You may not recognize his name, but you WILL recognize his music.
He composed the music for “Titanic”, and won two Oscars for it in 1998: Best Original Dramatic Score, and Best original Song, for CELINE DION’s “My Heart Will Go On”.
But he also did “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”, “Aliens”, “Glory”, “Braveheart”, “Apollo 13”, “Avatar”, and tons of other famous movies. Plus a lot of his music gets used in trailers for movies he DIDN’T score.
Horner was flying a single engine plane when he crashed in California’s Los Padres National Forest. He was 61 years old.
