From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Julie Gold (born February 3, 1956 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a New York singer/songwriter. She is best known for Bette Midler's version of her ballad song "From a Distance" which won the Grammy for Song of the Year in 1991.

Julie Gold performs at the M'korstock event at M'kor Shalom synagogue in Cherry Hill, New Jersey in 2009.

That song has since received close to 4 million air plays: It has been recited into the Congressional Record (by Senator Barbara Boxer). It has been recorded internationally and translated into many languages. It has been illustrated as a Children’s Book and mass- produced in Music Boxes. It has been quoted in books, calendars and greeting cards. It was used as the wake-up call for astronauts in the Mir Space Station the very first time the Americans hooked up with the Russians in outer space. A wide range of recording artists have covered it, singers from Jewel to Cliff Richard to The African Children’s Choir to Judy Collins to The Byrds to Donna Summer—just to name a few.

Nanci Griffith, the first to record "From a Distance", has also recorded Gold’s songs "Heaven", Southbound Train" Good Night New York", and "Mountain of Sorrow". Other artists who have covered Julie Gold songs include Patti LaBelle, Patti LuPone, Lea Salonga and Andrea Marcovicci. Gold’s Emmy Nominated lyric "We're 4 New York" is currently running on the local NBC affiliate. Her song "Thanks to You" was featured in the motion picture Andre, and her song "Dream Loud" was featured in the motion picture Unfaithful, starring Richard Gere. "Dream Loud" is also a favorite song of The Girl Scouts of America.

Julie Gold is originally from Philadelphia; she graduated from the Philadelphia High School for Girls in 1974 and from 1990 to 1994, she was a member of Four Bitchin' Babes, along with Christine Lavin, Megon McDonough, and Sally Fingerett.
