Niagara Catholic Distinguished Alumni Nominated for Grammy, Oscar

Artist, composer, producer, performer, arranger, conductor are among the many titles Stephan Moccio, a graduate of Saint Paul Catholic High School might use to describe himself on any given day. By the end of this month, he may be able to add “Oscar-winning” to his resume. Moccio, who was one of Niagara Catholic’s first Distinguished Alumni Award recipients, is up for an Academy Award for Earned It,  which he co-wrote with Toronto rapper The Weeknd, for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.
