Terry Kirkman, (born December 12, 1939) in Salina, Kansas, U.S., is a musician and writer of the hit songs "Cherish", "Everything That Touches You", and "Six Man Band". He left the band Men in 1962 to become a founding member and sometime leader of the musical group The Association. Kirkman co-wrote some material with fellow group member and friend Jules Alexander. His "Requiem For The Masses", a song written about the war in Vietnam, featured requiem-style vocals. In 1964, while he was dating a girl named Barbara Bivens, he introduced her sister Beverly to what became, with her as their lead singer, the folk rock group We Five.
