About Lavaah Goodaz:
Born in Kingston, Jamaica on April 20 passionately watching and imitating entertainers such as Halle Berry, Beres Hammond, Lady Saw, and Tanya Stephens so it was no surprise that she naturally grew to be a diverse and talented entertainer in her own right. Lavaah was determined at a tender age that her success would pave the way for her family and at six-teen she began her modeling career.
While she gained valuable experience ultimately her curvaceous five foot two voluptuous frame proved quite a challenge in the modeling industry. Never discouraged Lavaah decided to turn to her love of song writing and performing. “One day I decided I’m going to write a song and after a few weeks I had almost a dozen songs written and it was then that I knew I would pursue my career as a Reggae artist.” She created the name Lavaah Goodaz, which stands for “Hot Goodness” because she is HOT and GOOD!!!
She is currently promoting her first reggae CD titled: As GOODAZ It Gets Pt.1, a versatile combination of original and “cover” material released October 2011 having already sold close to One Thousand Units independently; Lavaah is anxious and excited preparing for her first upcoming tour starting on May 4th, 2012 on the It Buck Tour.
