Milky is a dance production group based in Italy. The act consists of producers Giordano Trivellato and Giuliano Sacchetto, with Italian people singer Giuditta serving as their lead singer on their album, Star. Although Giuditta was the singer on the recordings, a model, the Egyptian born and German raised Sabrina Elahl, was used for the music video for the "Just The Way You Are" single. The same model was used for the vinyl cover.

Elahl's voice did not appear on any of Milky's recordings, where all songs were sung by Giuditta. The latter can be seen on the "Be My World "12" cover, as well as in the video for "In My Mind". Two of the tracks from Star eventually became hits in the United States: " Just the Way You Are" reached the number one position on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart in 2002. The track also reached No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart. In September 2005, "Be My World" peaked at number 6 on the Hot Dance Airplay chart and also charted in Sweden.

Giuditta also provided the vocals on electronic artist, Joe Pacino's song, "Miss You So Bad".

Milky (pudding)

Milky is a dairy pudding produced in Israel by the Strauss corporation.

Milky is claimed to be the most successful dairy product on the Israeli market since its debut in 1980. Milky is sold in small containers with chocolate pudding on the bottom and whipped cream on the top. Milky was identical, in its original version, to a dessert sold by Groupe Danone in Germany as "Dany Sahne".

The company also produces מילקי הפוך (Milky Upside Down), with vanilla pudding and chocolate cream, as well as a vanilla-flavored Milky, a Milky with sprinkles on top, and an "aerated" version.

In 1986 Strauss premiered Milky's first video commercial to Israeli moviegoers entitled "Battle of the Milky." The commercial became a big hit and led to two sequels, "Battle of the Milky 2" and "Battle of the Milky 3." The actresses in the commercials were known as "Milky girls" and became an icon in their own right, Sandi Bar, Hila Nachshon or Bar Refaeli among them. In 2003, a 22-year-old Technion student, Elaad Yair, discovered that whipped cream used in Milky contained a rennet-based gelatin. Vegetarians and those who keep kosher complained, resulting in the company's announcement that it would henceforth only use vegetable-based gelatin.
