A year later she was named co-recipient of the 2018 ANSMA Portia White Youth Music Award. That same year Montreal-based jazz vocalist Jeri Brown named Zamani a recipient of the Jongleur Youth Arts Performance Award. Greatly inspired by divas past and present Zamani’s influences include the likes of: India Arie, Jill Scott, Amel Larrieux, Natalie Cole, Betty Carter, Nina Simone, Lalah Hathaway, Sade, Erykah Badu and Beyonce.
