EGOT #7 is a name you might not know, Jonathan Tunick. He's best known for being the orchestrator for most of Stephen Sondheim's musicals. He and Audrey Hepburn are the only EGOTs to have won only one award in each category.
Diva: "The Glamorous Life" from the movie of *A Little Night Music*
Mensch: "No One Is Alone" from *Into the Woods,* sung by Cleo Laine
I'll warn you, the Cleo Laine video is seriously dippy!
