615 Music Receives National Daytime Emmy Nomination?Live for Today? Penned for NBC?s Today Show (February 13, 2006)
615 Music President and CEO Randy Wachtler has earned a National Daytime Emmy® award nomination in the ?Outstanding Original Song category for the 615-produced tune ?Live for Today, which was chosen as the theme for a multi-part series on NBCs Today Show.
Sharing the nomination with co-writers Phil Vassar and Julie Vassar, Wachtler worked closely with NBCs Senior Vice President of Marketing, East Coast Frank Radice on the idea for the theme. Wachtler credits Radice as Executive Producer on the project. ?Frank came up with a great idea, Wachtler commented. ?Being a musician himself, he has one of the best ears of any producer Ive worked with.
In May 2005, the popular NBC morning show mounted a series of reports that chose lucky viewers and made it possible for them to realize their dreams. ?Live for Today was the upbeat and inspiring music chosen from more than 100 submissions as the theme for the series and subsequently was chosen as the theme for the show.
The song was recorded by Phil Vassar April 4, 2005, in the 615 Music studios and was unveiled in a live performance May 2, 2005, by the Arista recording artist on the plaza outside the Today Shows Rockefeller Center studios.
Wachtler has a long history with the Today Show. In 2002, 615 Music developed and produced the theme music for the shows ?Only on Today campaign, and for the last three years, Wachtler has written the lighthearted music to accompany the popular ?Where in the World is Matt Lauer travel series.
