Nicole Vanessa Ortiz BIO

Since she was a child, female vocalists have inspired Nicole to use her gifts as an artist on stage. She landed on "American Idol" as a finalist, won the grand prize on "The Wendy Williams Show" singing competition, and made such an impression singing on BET's "Apollo Live" that Gladys Knight personally invited her on tour. In 2017, Nicole made her theater debut as the leading lady in the Off-Broadway parody Spamilton before starring in the 2018 revival of the Tony-nominated and Grammy Award-winning musical revue Smokey Joe's Cafe: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller.
