in both acting and music, yet Frank Stallone has managed to
pull it off.

Hollywood insiders abuzz at Oscar time, and his #1 smash hit
single, 'Far From Over' from Staying
Alive was likewise touted for a “Best Song”

everything from a street singer, a rock singer, to a big-band
singer. Frank was also nominated for a Grammy for Best
Soundtrack, and a Golden Globe for Best Original Song for Staying
Alive. Frank has written songs for 11 films, and still
plays to SRO crowds in arenas and concert halls from Los
