Marvin composed some of the most iconic scores of stage and screen, including ‘The Way We Were’ and ‘A Chorus Line.’

The world lost an immense talent this week. Marvin Hamlisch died Aug. 6 in Los Angeles after battling a brief illness, family spokesman Jason Lee tells the Associated Press.

One of the few people in history to “EGOT” — earn an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award — Marvin is responsible for scoring some of Hollywood and Broadway’s most iconic works.

Celebrities took to Twitter to mourn the great loss.

Debra Messing tweeted: “The GREAT Marvin Hamlisch passed away… What a loss. What a talent. What contributions… #rip.”
