Herb Alpert

Herb Alpert, is a Grammy-winning recording artist, label exec musician/ philanthropist, and co-founder with his wife, Lani Hall, of the Herb Alpert Foundation.  With five No. 1 albums, nine Grammy Awards, and over 72 million worldwide record sales, Herb Alpert is the only musician to hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart as both a vocalist  (“This Guy’s In Love with You,”) and an instrumentalist (“Rise.”)  Following the 1962 formation of A&M Records with his partner Jerry Moss, Alpert launched a series of hit albums and singles for artists ranging from the We Five to The Carpenters, Sérgio Mendes and Brasil '66, Bill Medley, Liza Minnelli, Janet Jackson and, Lani Hall, the original lead singer with Sérgio Mendes.  In the 1980s Alpert created The Herb Alpert Foundation and the Alpert Awards in the Arts with The California Institute of the Arts. The Foundation supports youth and arts education as well as environmental issues. In 2007, Alpert and his wife donated $30 million to University of California, Los Angeles to form and endow the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music as part of the restructured UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture. In 2012, the Foundation gave a grant of more than $5 million to the Harlem School of the Arts, which enabled the school to retire its debt, restore its endowment, and create a scholarship program for needy students; in 2013, the school's building was renamed the Herb Alpert Center. In 2016, his foundation made a $10.1 million donation to Los Angeles City College that has provided all music majors at the school with a tuition-free education, since the fall of 2017. This was the largest gift to an individual community college in the history of Southern, CA, and the second-largest gift in the history of the state.[31] In 2020, Alpert bestowed an additional $9.7 million on the Harlem School of The Arts to upgrade its facility.
