He wrote songs known the world over such as “I’ve Got a Crush on You”, “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “Embraceable You”. Gershwin composed the music for many Broadway shows as well as for films such as “Shall We Dance” starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and featuring the song “They Can’t Take That Away From Me”.
