I just got to meet young Canadian artist Nikki Yanofsky! She was a true talent and such a pleasure to talk to! As a young artist of only 16, she is very down-to-earth and recognizes how fortunate she is! She believes that her voice is the greatest gift that she has ever received and explained that her love for singing started at very young age. She said that even if she didn't have a good voice, she would probably sing anyway!
Nikki was honored to sing Canada's national anthem at the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Even with all the pressure of singing in front of millions of people, her biggest worry -- walking down the stairs in her five inch heels LOL! She also had the privilege of working with other successful artists such as Justin Bieber, Drake, and Avril Lavigne on Canada's Young Artists For Haiti "Wavin' Flag". She claims that Justin's hair really does look as soft as everyone thinks, and she does a hysterical impression of him doing his hair flip!
No matter what she endeavors, Nikki makes sure to always be herself and not change for anyone! Her powerful voice and strong personality have led her to success, and I'm sure there is more to come! Make sure to check out her debut album, Nikki!
What do you think of Nikki Yanofsky?
