Warren also co-wrote “Why Did You That?” with Lady Gaga for the 2018 film “A Star is Born” and is the sole owner of the publishing company Realsongs.

Allan Rich is a two-time Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe nominated songwriter who co-wrote Natalie Cole’s “I Live For Your Love,” James Ingram’s “I Don’t Have The Heart” and Whitney Houston’s “Run to You.” Rich has also written songs for Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Luther Vandross, Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Ray Charles and Dolly Parton.
