True North Favourite: Little Secret

nikki yanofsky

Little Secret by Nikki Yanofsky

Do you remember the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games? Were you as pumped up and prideful as I was during this glorious time in our nation's athletic history? Then you probably remember the voice of this girl – Nikki Yanofsky. She was the voice behind the song I Believe, the song they played every time we medalled and every time one of our amazing athletes did something extraordinary (which, if you recall, was often!) This song had the power to bring me to tears – from Alexandre Bilodeau to Tessa and Scott, this song and this voice brought it home. She is a Canadian girl from Montreal and when I think of her and I hear her songs, I think of our triumphs!
