Well Deserved Praise
Of course you know the Shermans, for they wrote most of Disney's songs of the 60s, during the entire period from Sword in the Stone to Aristocats, including Mary Poppins, which won them Academy Awards. They were also prolific outside of Disney, including writing the hit She's Sixteen (She's Beautiful and She's Mine). Currently they have Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang shows around the country.
Here they receive the highest national honor in the field of the Arts.
