Less well known as a performer than as a music industry executive, Gary LeMel began his showbiz career as vice president at Jerry Weintraub's Management III. A stint at First Artists Music followed, and it was there that LeMel was tapped by Warner Bros. to supervise the music for the Barbra Streisand films A Star Is Born and The Main Event; the soundtrack to the former was particularly successful, selling over six million copies in the U.S. alone. After serving as senior VP at Neil Bogart's Boardwalk Company, LeMel moved to Columbia Pictures in 1983; there he supervised a series of smash soundtracks including The Big Chill, Ghostbusters, Against All Odds and St. Elmo's Fire. Three years later he accepted an offer from Warner Bros., in the years to follow moving up the corporate ladder to become the president of the company's music division; again working extensively in film soundtracks, he launched hits including The Bodyguard, Singles and Space Jam. As a jazz vocalist, LeMel also recorded the occasional LP, including 1994's Romancing the Screen and 1999's Bobby Darin tribute Moonlighting. Lost In Your Arms appeared in summer 2001. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
