Nikki Yanofsky Interview

Nikki Yanofsky has been busy! She sang the theme for the 2010 Olympics, recorded with Justin Bieber and now she’s all set to release her new album. Find out more in her interview with Kidzworld!

Nikki was already a big name in jazz, but when she sang “I Believe” for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, the whole world finally got an earful of her amazing voice. Nikki has a lot on her plate this year, but she took some time out to chat with Kidzworld about her new album. “I intend to branch out,” she says. “I love love, love jazz, but I sing everything because if I limit myself to one genre, I feel like I’ll be missing out.” Fans should mark May 4th on their calendars—that’s when Nikki’s latest album hits stores. “I helped write all the original songs, so you'll get to know my personality through the words,” Nikki promises.


Famous Friends

Nikki has recorded with some big names. She lent her vocals to “Wavin’ Flag” a benefit song for Haiti that she recorded alongside other great artists like Justin Bieber, Nelly Furtado and Drake. Nikki was also lucky enough to work with Wyclef Jean, will.i.am and the great Herbie Hancock on a project for basketball legend, Kareem Abdul Jabaar. Who else would she love to work with? “Stevie Wonder, Jamie Cullum would be cool too," Nikki says. "And Paul Simon—but these are huge dreams, it almost sounds ridiculous!”


Staying Grounded

With so many projects and so many famous friends, it must be difficult for Nikki to stay grounded, but she manages just fine with the help of her friends and family. She also has “the mentality that you're never as good as you can possibly be.” “You can always get better,” Nikki says. “The day I think I'm the best at what I do is a very, very bad day. I'm constantly looking for ways to improve myself and my music.” Find out just how far she's come when her new album is released on May 4th!
