Produced by Tommy LiPuma, this track made Yanofsky the youngest singer ever to record for Verve. In September 2008, Yanofsky released her first full-length album, a live CD/DVD concert package entitled "Ella... Of Thee I Swing". Supported by her production company, A440 Entertainment and distributed in Canada and Japan by Universal Music, it garnered critical acclaim and earned her two Juno Award nominations in 2009: 'New Artist of the Year' and 'Vocal Jazz Album of the Year'.

She also won 'Favourite Jazz Artist' at the 2009 Canadian Independent Music Awards. Songwriters Stephan Moccio and Alan Frew chose Yanofsky to sing CTV's broadcast theme for the 2010 Winter Olympics, "I Believe." The Song reached number one on the Canadian Hot 100 on the week of February 27, 2010. This made her the first Canadian artist to have a number one song on that chart since "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne topped the chart in 2007. The song was certified "Quadruple Platinum" for digital downloads in April 2010. ...show less
