Lori Lieberman is an American singer/songwriter. She was born in California and grew up in Switzerland, and signed a deal with Capitol Records in the early 1970s. Her self-titled debut album featured the tune "Killing Me Softly with His Song", written by composers Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel after Lieberman saw Don McLean in concert. Fox and Gimbel developed the tune for Lieberman, and it would go on to be a chart-topping single for Roberta Flack in 1973. Lieberman released several albums on Capitol in the 1970s and also provided music for the Schoolhouse Rock TV show in the late '70s and early '80s. In the 1980s Lieberman receded from the industry and had three children; in the mid-1990s she began recording again for independent labels.
