Coming from a line of actors and musicians dating back to Vaudeville, Rvkah (given name Rebecca Jean Moritz) was singing before she could speak. Her first public performance was at age five in front of an audience of over 500 people in a school talent show. Rvkah has been singing and performing ever since. She was born in Florida, and raised in Israel - where she recorded her debut album, "Picture Me', at just 12-years-old, (back when she simply went by "Rebecca"). The album contains five award-winning songs. The title song won first place in the VH1 "Song of the Year" contest in 2005. Two other songs from the album: "Your Love Is Like A Knife" and "Nu" were also awarded as "finalists" among thousands of entries by VH1 judges. In addition, "Let Your Fire Take Me" received "Director's Award" from Paramount Group in Nashville, in March 2006. Her song "All Men Are Created Equal" was also honored by the VH1 Song of the Year judges and received Honorable Mention from the "Peacedriven Songwriting Award" committee. In addition, Rvkah has received encouraging letters of commendation from former U.S. President Barack Obama, former U.S. President, George W. Bush; former Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon and many other countries' ambassadors for her distribution of this wonderful song of peace worldwide. She was also selected as a "Gold Artist" by RadioIndy. She has released several other singles - promoting peace, happiness and hope in the world. Her single "Angels in Jerusalem" received honors from the "Unisong International Songwriting Contest". "Hope" is a song promoting the research for cures of life threatening diseases. "60 Years" was a single released celebrating the 60th anniversary of Israel - which she later performed in the Israel Pride Parade, televised in NYC. "Happy New Year" was released in January, 2009. Rvkah then went on to release her sophomore album, self-titled, "Rebecca". Her music videos "Summer Without You", "Times", and "Wait For Me" from her debut album have premiered on MTV Europe, as well as various music channels across Israel. Soon after, two singles from her sophomore album, entitled "Another Story" and "Never Ever", were released to radio stations in the United Kingdom and in Israel. Since then, Rvkah graduated from Berklee College of Music on 2014 and changed her stage name to "Rvkah", (formerly "Rebecca"), which represents the reinvention of herself as an artist. She is releasing her upcoming six-song debut "Love EP", coming September 2020.
