Nikki Yanofsky Sings Olympic Theme Song

Canadian jazz prodigy Nikki Yanofsky sings the official Olympic theme song for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. The song is the brainchild of Toronto-based composer Stephan Moccio who had worked with Yanofsky before and knew she had the right voice for the song.
“I guess if I had to sum it all up I don't really know how it came about, but I'm super, super happy that it did and I'm soooo honoured to be a part of this great project,” Yanofsky tells Shalom Life.
I Believe will be available on iTunes Canada as of Jan. 26 and in the US on Feb. 2. A physical EP featuring the instrumental version will be available throughout Canada. The song is also sung in French by Annie Villeneuve.
Moccio is a composer, pianist and artist who has written for both acclaimed Canadian and international artists, including Celine Dion.
“I come from a very musical family where in my upbringing I wasn’t shunned,” he shares. “My mother was a pianist and my father was a clarinet player and the arts were very revered in our household.”
Both artists have albums coming out very soon. Yanofsky, 15, recently recorded her very first studio album due for release in spring. Moccio – who recently released the solo piano album Exposed – plans on releasing another recording during springtime.
