AV!VA began her musical training at age 7 with the study of the piano, and from there continued her musical training. She's studied many instruments, and mastered the tenor saxophone and marching percussion, which paved the way for her invitation to join several jazz and concert bands. Her first song, “Conquering the City,” won her consideration for best rap/sung duo in the 58th Grammy Awards, and since then she’s continued working with world renowned producers to pursue her musical dreams.
For her first official concert in August 2018 for over 6,000 people at Warner Center Park, she and her band won the Best Emerging Artist Award from the Valley Cultural Center. Consequently, AV!VA and band were the headliners at the Concerts in the Park in NoHo in July 2019. Her new single, “Call Me Beautiful,” can be heard on the United Kingdom airwaves. Fans have also recently heard her interviewed on KDW Radio in Florida where she goes into details about her current songs, including her inspiration for the lyrics for her single. Additionally, she is working with the non-profit organization, Rock Against Trafficking, which has recorded rock legends such as Journey, Slash, Carlos Santana, and more, singing Sting and the Police covers to bring awareness and raise money to help the millions of children who are enslaved in the sex trafficking industry today. AV!VA sings and co-wrote the flagship anthem for the charity, "Stand Up".
