"Looks Like We Made It" is a song by American singer Barry Manilow, from his 1976 album, This One's For You, composed by Richard Kerr with lyrics by Will Jennings. It was released as a single on 20 April 1977. The song was first released in 1976 on his album This One's For You, and it was released as a single in 1977 where it reached the number one spot on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart.

About the Artist
Wilbur "Will" Jennings (born 1944 in Kilgore, Texas) is an American songwriter. He attended school just outside Tyler, TX, in the nearby Chapel Hill Independent School District. He also attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Grammy and Academy Award-winning songwriter Will Jennings began his Hollywood career with 1976s The Commitment, soon after teaming with composer Richard Kerr to author Barry Manilow's 1977 pop chart-topper "Looks Like We Made It"; two years later, Manilow returned to the Top Ten with the duo's "Somewhere in the Night." After earning his first Academy Award nomination for the song "People Alone" from 1980s The Competition, Jennings collaborated with Steve Winwood for several songs on the singer's acclaimed 1981 album Arc of a Diver; they reunited the following year for Talking Back to the Night, which generated the hit "Valerie." In tandem with Jack Nitzsche and Buffy Sainte-Marie, Jennings next scored his first Oscar for "Up Where We Belong," the Joe Cocker/Jennifer Warnes blockbuster from the film An Officer and a Gentlemen; after working with Jimmy Buffett on 1984s Riddles in the Sand and its follow-up Last Mango in.
