JNF ANNOUNCES NIKKI YANOVSKY TO HEADLINE NEGEV GALA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, JANUARY 21, 2014

The Jewish National Fund of Canada (JNF) – Manitoba/Saskatchewan Region is pleased to announce that dynamic jazz and pop vocalist Nikki Yanofsky will headline this year’s Negev Gala honouring Joseph J. Wilder Q.C. on Tuesday, May 27th at the Centennial Concert Hall.

 

“I can’t think of a better fit for the entertainment at Winnipeg’s Negev Gala. Nikki is young, incredibly talented, Canadian and her success has been skyrocketing”, stated regional president Karla Berbrayer. “So thrilled to have her headline our event!”

 

From her auspicious start as the youngest headliner in the history of the Montreal International Jazz Festival at 12, Nikki Yanofsky has covered plenty of territory over the last seven years. She has topped both jazz and pop charts, performed with orchestras and big bands, and sold out festivals and major theatres around the world; in 2010, she sang to 3.2 billion people – half the world’s population – at the Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Games.

 

She has worked with luminaries such as Herbie Hancock, Phil Ramone, Will.i.am, Wyclef Jean, and Elton John, and now, under the guidance of her greatest fan and mentor, Quincy Jones, Nikki is ready to introduce her own captivating new sound. Get ready to be amazed by her inimitable voice as she arrives at the unique crossroad where jazz meets pop, delivering sizzling songs that blend retro charm with a contemporary sound helmed by Rob Kleiner, the man behind exciting music by Cee-lo Green and Flo-Rida.

 

“The 2014 Negev Gala is going to be the place to be”, stated executive director Rob Berkowits. “We have a tremendous honouree in Mr. Wilder, who has made significant volunteer and philanthropic contributions to the community, plus outstanding entertainment in the talented & soulful Nikki Yanofsky.”

 

The Negev Gala has honoured outstanding leaders from within the Winnipeg community since 1953. This gala is the JNF’s most important fundraising event of the year. All proceeds generated are directed to environmental research and development projects that benefit all citizens and visitors in the State of Israel. For ticket information and sponsorship opportunities, please contact the JNF Office at 204-947-0207
