No, not Nicole Kidman: Nicole Kidd! Reminiscent of the beautiful sound of the late Ella Fitzgerald, this lady’s voice will bring tears to your eyes, it’s just that good. Voted Miami New Times 2018 “Best Jazz Act”, Kidd decided to hop on a plane and take on a residency (Monday–Saturday) at the Mandarin Oriental’s Bamboo Bar, which has been the place for jazz in Bangkok for decades. Bangkok is so lucky to have Ms Kidd on its soil and if I were you, I wouldn’t let the moment pass you by as this lady is hot stuff and who knows where she’ll be next!

Miami Beach native Nikki Kidd has been crooning since she was 4 years old. She grew up singing gospel in church, classical in school, and reggae, rock, and R&B at home. Kidd studied studio music and jazz voice at the University of Miami's esteemed Frost School of Music, and her commanding stage presence has led her to share the stage with big-name acts such as Gloria Estefan, Michael Bublé, KC and the Sunshine Band, and even the Florida Grand Opera in its production of Aida. Though she still performs locally with her Nikki Kidd Band, she has a residency at the Mandarin Oriental's Bamboo Bar in Bangkok, Thailand. Her shows are worth that trip around the globe, but she hasn't forgotten her hometown. - Miami New Times
