Nikki Yanofsky will be singing at a theatre near you.



As part of International Women’s Day celebrations, CBC radio last week celebrated various women musicians on their “Canada Live” program. It was on Thursday, when I heard, for the first time, the amazing vocal talents from Nikki Yanofsky – a young Canadian jazz singer.

I found out that Nikki will be on tour in London in May, and thought I’d just help spread the word. She’ll be at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on May 8, 2011.

Not only is this young woman an amazing artist, but she is also using her art to help make the world a better place. So far, she has helped raise over $10M for local, national and international charities. She lends her name and cachet to the Montreal Children's Hospital, The Children's Wish Foundation and MusiCounts, and she's contributed tracks to numerous compilation CDs for various causes.

Turns out she also has a sense of humour. Check out this video which shows off her talents, as well, makes all of us teachers out there remember - intelligence comes in many forms:


Not bad for a seventeen-year-old.

Anyway, let me know if any of you out there are planning to go to this concert while in London.

  1. I love Nikki. First heard her when she was 14, and she was incredible then. Looking forward to seeing her continue to grow and progress.
