The 5th Quarter is the third film to include original recordings by Stacy Earl. Stacy broke onto the music scene with RCA and her self-titled album, STACY EARL. The album delivered 3 top ten singles, “Love Me All Up,” “Romeo & Juliet” and “Slowly.” The first single, “Love Me All Up,” jumped 27 points on the Billboard Hot 100 in its second week on the chart. The follow-up, “Romeo And Juliet” was the most added single in America – a first-ever for a new female artist. In Japan, the record was second only to Michael Jackson. With a multi-octave voice that transcends the merely technical, with a heart-stopping blend of youthful innocence and worldly sophistication, Stacy brings an unmistakable signature to every song she sings.
The New York Daily News compared Stacy to Bessie Smith and Dinah Washington in her “breathy, understated style that projects a subdued, yet driving sensual energy that is always classy and never crude.” Interview Magazine described Stacy’s demeanor as “ blissing out on R&B ballads, pop, and bubble-funk.” It called the debut album “optimistic and seductive”, and added that “Stacy Earl runs on smile power.”
