Nikki Yanofsky

Nikki Yanofsky

Nikki Yanofsky (voice), 14, hails from Hampstead, Canada in the Quebec territory where she discovered jazz through the music of Ella Fitzgerald when she was just ten years old. For the past two years, Nikki has performed in front of sold-out crowds at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. She made her recording debut on Verve Records’ all-star collection We All Love Ella: Celebrating The First Lady Of Song along with contemporary artists such as Natalie Cole, Diana Krall and Etta James. Inspired to give back to her community, Nikki founded the Nikki Yanofsky Foundation at the Montreal Children’s Hospital and is the spokesperson for oneXone, a non-profit foundation committed to supporting, preserving, and improving the lives of children all over the world.
