Nick Scotti

Nick Scotti, who makes his feature film debut in Kiss Me, Guido, has already had more successful careers than most people twice his age. Born in Ozone Park, Queens, Scotti left high school to travel the world for a career in modeling, moving to Japan at age 17 and Paris at 19. In the process he became one of the fashion world's top male models. Having come from a family where music was a big part of their lives (one Grandfather was an opera singer and one a violinist), Scotti was well prepared for what came next. At a party given by famed photographer Herb Ritts, he was introduced to pop icon Madonna, who encouraged him to pursue his music by writing a song for him to record and singing background vocals on the track, entitled Get Over. Scotti's debut album Wake Up Everybody (Warner/Reprise) was released in March, 1993. The first single from the album went to number 3 on the Billboard charts and was used in the soundtrack to the film Nothing But Trouble, starring Demi Moore and Chevy Chase. In the creation of his album, Scotti worked with a who's who of contemporary music talents, including Diane Warren, Maxi Priest, Patti Austen as well as Madonna. Among his many concert appearances, Scotti has played at Town Hall with Marsha Wash and has performed at benefits for AMFAR and other charities. This past year Scotti has turned toward the acting profession, having played a regular role on the TV series Educating Matt Waters, with Montel Williams, and then landing the role in Kiss Me, Guido.
