Nikki Yanofsky

Fifteen year old Nikki Yanofsky is a young jazz-pop singer from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. In the summer of 2006 when she was only 12 years old she became the youngest performer to headline her own show in the 29 year history of the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Since then, she has performed to sold-out crowds at each of the subsequent Montreal festivals. She has also performed at Montreal's Bell Centre, The Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Montego Bay, with Marvin Hamlisch at Carnegie Hall in New York City and the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and with The Count Basie Orchestra at the 2008 Luminato Festival in Toronto.

The following are highlights from her first release "Ella... of Thee I Swing." This Concert DVD comes with an Audio CD of the concert and has been on sale in Canada since late September, 2008.
