She discovered her love for music at a young age, about which she recalls, “My sister Sandrine and I used to watch Whitney Houston videos on VHS and sing into my mother’s hair brushes.” In 2009, LaVie released her first album, titled Life Music, filled with inspirational/soul music. In 2015, she released Human, featuring recording artist Giel and singer/songwriter Kristine Alicia. Taking her music across the nation in 2015 with The Maestro East Coast Tour, LaVie opened for the son of Bob Marley, KyMani Marley, performing for thousands of enthusiastic fans. Channeling her Caribbean heritage, LaVie released her newest single “Queen” in July 2016. LaVie was also a part of Jazz in the Gardens in 2016 sharing the stage with Usher, Janelle Monae, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Fred Hammond, The Average White Band, Regina Belle and many more. In 2023, she opened for a second time at the festival for Keisha Cole, Sean Paul, Charlie Wilson and Erykah Badu. Space is limited. No tickets are sold at the door.
