Elvis Stojko to release record

Published: 2006-08-16
Canadian figure skating star Elvis Stojko is getting ready to swap his skates for a microphone?

According to CBC, Stojko has just finished recording his as-yet-untitled debut disc.

"I've always loved music ó skating to music, moving to music [and] singing," Stojko said."My mom was a dancer, my dad's a singer and I've always had that kind of music in my life."

Produced by Mark Lalama the album is to have an adult contemporary sound but "more edgy." Lalama also works with the hit reality television show Canadian Idol which is probably why Stojko will be hooking up with finalist Ashley Leitao. The duet will also appear on the debut album of Leitao's band Braided.

Stojko is hoping for a late 2006 release.

Aside from skating and singing, he also won a silver medal at the World Kickboxing and Karate championships last year and appeared in the stage production of Grease in 2004. He also hopes to pursue a film career.
