Nikki Yanofsky is All Praises for Chariceai??i??s Glee Stint

In a recent interview by Just Jared Jr., Nikki Yanofsky said that sheai??i??s really proud of Charice bagging a part in the second season of Glee. She also revealed that if given the chance, she would love to have a role in the very popular show.

If youai??i??re a bit unfamiliar with Nikki, you would love to know that, like Charice, sheai??i??s also a young artist with an amazing voice. Sheai??i??s a sixteen year old jazz sensation from Canada who has debuted in Carnegie Hall when she was just thirteen. She started off her singing career with a performance in the Montreal International Jazz Festival of 2006. Sheai??i??s the youngest singer ever to be featured in that festival.

The jazz scene paid more attention to Nikki upon hearing her version of Ella Fitzgeraldai??i??s ai???Airmail Specialai??? on the album, ai???We All Love Ella: The First Lady of Songai??? form Verve Records. Other contributors to that album included big names like Diana Krall and Michael Buble. NIkki is also the youngest artist to have ever recorded for Verve Records.

Just this year, Nikki sang, ai???O, Canadaai???, the national anthem of Canada, in both the opening and closing programs of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. She was also the chosen singer of songwriters Alan Frew and Stephan Moccio to record the broadcast theme, ai???I Believeai???, of the Winter Olympics.

As talented as she is, Nikki has nothing but good things to say about Charice in the Just Jared Jr. interview, especially about Charice being Sunshine Corazon. Nikki revealed that Glee is her favorite show and she has actually watched Chariceai??i??s performances in the pilot episode. She also thinks that Reviews on generic maxalt Charice is ai???doing great!ai??? on Glee. ai???It was just really cool to see her up on the [television] screen and she totally deserves this. Itai??i??s so neat that they [the creators] based a character on her and Iai??i??m just so happy to see her on it,ai??? she added.

Charice and Nikki are actually good friends. They first met in the famous New York Cityai??i??s Canal Room. A few months ago, they both attended the 41st Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame Award Show, where they even posed together on the red carpet for the photographers and press. Both of them performed during the program. Charice was also there to honor songwriter David Foster who was inducted for his numerous achievements, including 44 Grammy nominations and penning a great number of unforgettable songs.

And itai??i??s not only Charice who has worked with the amazing David Foster. Nikki also shared the stage with Foster, Ruben Studdard, Charice, and Joshua Page at the 63rd Annual Horatio Alger Awards in Washington D.C. The Horatio Alger Award is given to people from disadvantaged situations who become successful through perseverance while maintaining their moral principles.

It is indeed true that birds of the same feather flock together in Chariceai??i??s and Nikkiai??i??s case. Both are young and talented artists who bring a positive attitude to the usually crazy world of music. Hopefully, their friendship would still continue throughout their long careers.

    her co-artists naturally have a better appreciation than others of her talent, because they know all too well how difficult it is to do what she does, especially with someone as young as her, and this generates great professional respect. But when they meet Charice personally, get to know her and get won over by her charm and humility, they can’t help cheering for her, like Nikki does.

    still, that is so big-hearted of Nikki to speak publicly this way of Charice – more power to her!

    After the Olympics in Vancouver, everyone in Canada knows Nikki Yanofsky’s name. She’s a talented jazz singer. Charice’s friendship with Nikki will no doubt strengthen Charice’s fan base here in Canada.

    I have read somewhere that Niki is also half-filipino, please correct me if I am wrong. It was to hear positive comments from Charice’s friend and colleague, just affirmed that she is great

    Yes, I agree, those “Billboard Top Songs” that are posted some are not legitimate, for I noticed that when I voted, it stated below on that site that you can copy it for your own poll.

      the top 100 Billboard song voting is not LEGIT… come on guys, you have to be better than that… its frustrating, we are fans i know but you don’t have to go down low like that… if its your personal poll then say it, and not deceive other fans, or flagirise a legitimate industry brand like Billboard

    Aha!…first to comment and contribute. Anyway, good for Nikki and Charice to get to know each other as both are indeed birds of the same feather. In this present state of the entertainment industry and especially in te USA or even the Philippines, many talents are manufactured either as pretentious or gimmicky. These two are the real deal, pure,decent and full of untapped talent and potentials. They can make a big difference and change the existing music world scenario by making it cleaner, wholesome and truthful. Hopefully singers who can’t sing except in auto-tune, those that can’t even provide a decent note or those that dress up sluttily to compensate would be a thing of the past and fans would be more discerning and intelligently appreciative of their choices of whom to support and appreciate. Role models these two are as Yoda would say. To people like these, my full support and admiration. Hope our world gets better from special individuals like Charice and Nikki. Time to right expectations and what better people to do this except those young, idealistic and talented!
