A glimpse or photo of Canadian musician legend David Foster was all Lisa Windsor was hoping for when she snuck into a gala at the RBC Convention Centre Tuesday.

The 16-time Grammy Award-winning musician and record producer was in Winnipeg to accept the Asper School of Business's International Distinguished Entrepreneur Award.

Windsor, a singer, said she tagged along with her father, who was in charge of video production for the event.

"I really just wanted to get a glimpse of David Foster," she said. "He's behind all of my heroes, all of their big hits ... and just the careers he's helped launch Josh Grobin, Michael Bubl, Cline Dionit's insane."

Before the dinner got underway, one of the event organizers introduced Windsor to Foster.

The pair talked for a few minutes and took a photo together.
