With a heritage of actors and musicians going back to Vaudeville, Rvkah (born Rebecca Jean Moritz), was destined for the stage. Her musical interest began at the tender age of 18 months, singing tunes and lyrics before she could even form sentences. At the age of five, she performed in a talent show in front of over 500 people. The thrill of performing and the response from the audience sparked her ambition to make singing a lifelong career.
Born in Florida, she lived the first 10 years of her life there, then moved overseas. Rvkah spent eight years, attending the American International School in Israel, where she made friends from all over the world. Her international experience taught her that it is possible for different cultures, nationalities, races and religions to work together, learn, and appreciate life as one “family”. This experience was the catalyst to her promotion of peace through her award winning songs: Her first recording “All Men Are Created Equal” was honored by the ‘VH1 Song of the Year’ judges and also received Honorable Mention from the ‘Peacedriven Songwriting Award’ committee. Her single “Angels in Jerusalem” received honors from the ‘Unisong International Songwriting Contest’, as well as her single “Hope” - a song promoting the research for cures of life threatening diseases. “60 Years” was another single that was released celebrating the 60th anniversary of Israel. In addition to her awards, Rvkah received encouraging letters of commendation from United States 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 her songs of peace worldwide.
Rvkah recorded her debut album “Picture Me” at the age of twelve under the name "Rebecca". The album contains five award winning songs. The title song won first place in the VH1 ‘Song of the Year’ contest in 2005; “Your Love Is Like A Knife” and “Nu”, were awarded as ‘finalist’ among thousands of entries by VH1 judges. Her song “Let Your Fire Take Me” received the ‘Director’s Award’ from Paramount Group in Nashville in March 2006; and Rvkah was selected as a ‘Gold Artist’ by RadioIndy.com. In August, 2016 , the songs "Tell Me" and "Like a Phoenix", (currently not yet released), received 'Runner Up' and 'Semi-Finalist' placements by VH1 Song of the Year Judges.
Rvkah returned to the US after high school and spent a year in New York City, during which time she traveled and continued performing and recording overseas. “Happy New Year” was released in January, 2009 and "Christmas in New York” was released in November 2010, by which time she had moved to Boston to earn a degree in Performance and Music Business at Berklee College of Music. Rvkah released her sophomore CD, entitled simply, “Rebecca” in 2010. Singles from the album, “Another Story” and “Never Ever” were released to radio stations in the United Kingdom in May 2009, and aired on BBC1 Radio.
Rvkah has released four music videos; "Summer Without You" and "Picture Me" from her debut album, and "Times" and "Wait For Me" from her sophomore album, all which have aired on MTV-Europe.
Rvkah lives between Dallas and Los Angeles, currently working on the production of her new electro-pop EP, due out later in 2019.
