A multi-talented artist, Niki J. Crawford not only sings but is also a talented and growing actress. She just finished shooting an upcoming film “Revival” based on the gospel of John set to release Dec. 2018 and "Mr. Sophistication,” in which she plays herself-a popstar alongside Tatum O' Neal, Harry Lennix and Rick Fox. Niki can also be seen in Taylor Hackford’s "Love Ranch,” co-starring alongside Ginnifer Goodwin and Kevin Connolly in the hit comedy, "He’s Just Not That Into You"; “American Dreamz”, as well as roles in “The Tenants,” “Seeing Other People,” "Gridiron Gang,” "Miss March", and “Killer Diller,” which she received a “Two Thumbs Up” for her performance and was told “She is The REAL American Idol” from Ebert & Roper. Niki has also guest-starred on television shows “Ally McBeal,” “Wanted,” and was a “Scarlett” series regular; she has guested on hit productions “Rent” (Shubert Theater), and “Behind Closed Doors” (Tyler Perry Prod./T.D Jakes Prod.); and is also featured singing in the national Subway Campaign.

Niki continues to write and perform leading with her trademark aura of unconditional love and sensuality that fuels a vocal passion with the effortless ease of a veteran performer. Niki has said her goal is to make feel-good music and great films with an energy that inspires and alleviates negativity. 

"Besides her striking beauty, first impressions of the singer include a powerful aura of strength and confidence. An accomplished singer, songwriter, and movie actress, Crawford is a wildly talented and motivated woman. It is in front of a microphone where Niki shines bright. Her voice literally erupts from her being, turning each song into an exclamation of unadulterated funk and soul. She is fearlessly explicit, exuding sexuality and the unmistakable good vibe spreads like a blanket across the audience. This is quite evident just looking at the jaw dropped, awed faces of male and female fans alike when she performs. Strength of character and talent make Miss Niki J. Crawford a true woman of distinction" — Andre Reddy, Live for Live Music
