I would like to specify a list of functions such as:

funcs = {f1, f2, f3}

and a list of values to which the functions will be
applied:

vals = {val1, val2, val3}

I would then like to apply to each function to each
corresponding value
respectively to obtain the following list:

DesiredOutputList = {f1[val1], f2[val2], f3[val3]}

I can do this explicitly by defining the functions in terms
of the
explicit elements of the list such as f1[x_] := x[[1]]^2 and
so on
for the other functions, but I was wondering if there is a
built-in
way to apply a list of functions respectively to the elements
of a list
of values which would be simpler and more efficient.  I
looked through
the Mathematica book and nothing obvious popped out at me,
but is seems
like such a simple concept that it must be there somewhere.
