In a recent segment from NBC’s Nightly News, Nikki Yanofsky sat down with anchor Brian Williams for a glimpse into the young singer’s life. In the clip the two discuss everything from Nikki’s musical influences and the details of her upcoming album to balancing the pressures of high school with her growing stardom.
Candid and refreshingly down-to-earth but with a voice that rivals legends like her idol, Ella Fitzgerald, Nikki is set to take the world by storm in 2010. Look for her US debut album later this year, which will feature covers of classic jazz, folk, and pop tunes as well as original material (including collaborations with famed songwriters Jesse Harris and Ron Sexsmith). Her cover of Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm” is available for purchase now on and be sure to visit her official website at NikkiYanofksy.com for more information on this rising star.
