The beautiful singer, Nicole Henry, has won praise from both critics and audiences since her first moment in the spotlight. It’s no wonder Nicole has released three TOP 10-selling CDs in the last four years and toured internationally and throughout the United States. For two years after graduating college, Nicole performed around Miami, winning local awards singing original songs and pop covers. Then in 2002, Nicole fell in love with the freedom, melodies and lyrics of jazz. By 2004, she released her debut jazz CD, The Nearness of You, to critical acclaim. HMV Japan named Nicole “Best New Jazz Artist” for 2004 and the CD climbed to #2 on HMV Japan charts, staying in the top 10 for three months. In the U.S., Nicole received rave reviews and was featured on national jazz radio, including Sirius and XM Satellite Radio. Billboard wrote that “Henry is a jazz vocalist poised on the cusp of bigger things,” and indeed she continues to be. Her follow-up CD, Teach Me Tonight with the Eddie Higgins Trio, on Japan’s Venus Records, reached #1 at HMV, and again earned her honors, with HMV Japan naming it the “Best Vocal Jazz Album” of 2005....
