Nikki Yanofsky is a 16‐year‐old musical prodigy. Since her debut at the 2006 Montreal International Jazz Festival, where she won the hearts of the 100,000+ people in the audience, Nikki has never looked back. Early accomplishments in her career were plentiful.
In 2010, Nikki was a featured artist at the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games held in Vancouver. Performing at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics as well as the opening ceremony of the Paralympics, she was introduced to a world‐wide audience. Nikki was also chosen to sing "I Believe," the anthem for Canadian spirit during the Winter Olympic Games. Written by Stephan Moccio (Celine Dion) and Alan Frew (Glass Tiger), this song quickly became a #1 hit in Canada. The single had the highest first‐week sales of any Canadian artist in SoundScan history and was certified quadruple‐platinum, making Nikki the youngest artist to ever achieve this sales level. As "I Believe" was at the top of the iTunes Canada Pop Singles charts, Ella... of Thee I Swing went back to the top of the iTunes Canada Jazz Albums Chart and "I Got Rhythm" went to the top of the iTunes Canada Jazz Singles Chart. This was the first time since the inception of digital downloading that any artist has held these #1 positions concurrently.
