STACY WIDELITZ, COMPOSER, SONGWRITER:  With a multi-platinum album for his contribution to Dirty Dancing, an Emmy nomination for a wildlife documentary score, more than a dozen television themes, and music for more than two dozen movies for both the big screen and TV to his credit, composer Stacy Widelitz has already built up an impressive resumé. Stacy first came to prominence with the song “She’s Like the Wind,” co-written with Patrick Swayze and featured in Swayze’s blockbuster Dirty Dancing.  Featured on the movie’s wildly successful soundtrack, which sold 11 million copies in the United States alone, it was the third single to be released and reached no. 3 on Billboard’s top-40 chart (no. 1 among adult-contemporary radio listeners). He also received two BMI awards for the tune as among the most-performed songs of that year. In the past few years, he has scored more than twenty made-for-TV movies, written the end-title song for Disney’s “Pocahontas II”, and has recently moved to Nashville to collaborate with some of that city’s top songwriters. Stacy wrote the title song and scored all the episodes of Children’s Television Workshop’s acclaimed animated series Cro, and has worked with directors such as Todd Holland, Waris Hussein and James Contner. Stacy recently completed the score and much of the dance music for the up-coming film One Last Dance, and received four Gold Addy awards for an ad campaign in Kentucky. He has also worked with many noted musicians, such as Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Edgar Winter and Danny Wilde (The Rembrandts). Stacy is noted for his diversity, being as comfortable in front of an orchestra as he is in the state-of-the-art digital studio he maintains at his home.
