Zhavia Ward, a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, California, surprised everyone when she appeared on the stage of The Four: Battle for Stardom in 2018.
The girl was only 16 years old at the time, but her powerhouse voice has secured a place for Zhavia among the show’s four finalists.
Carisa Zhavia Ward carries some real talent in her blood—her mom was the singer of the metal band Xenoterra.
Not only is she a successful singer, but Bobbi Jo Black is a proud mother who fully supports her daughter Zhavia on her way to stardom. The video begins with the footage of Zhavia and her mom sharing a warm hug backstage.
You can hear the mom saying, “You know you’re dreams are going to come true.”
It is one of the most heart-warming moments throughout the entire show! Nothing compares to a parent’s love. Just look at Bobbi in the audience, her face radiates happiness as Zhavia nails every note.
In May 2018, Ward signed a deal with Columbia Records.
Her audition on The Four turned out to be a turning point in Zhavia’s promising career. The girl was noticed quickly, and artists Diplo and Lil Pump even featured Zhavia on their single “Welcome to the Party.”
Zhavia started her first tour in 2019, and soon after, she performed a cover of “A Whole New World” with Zayn Malik or the Aladdin soundtrack!
In the same year, Ward released her first EP titled 17, which makes a lot of sense because she was only 17 at the time. To find out more about Zhavia, check out her official website.
As soon as she stepped on stage, young Zhavia had all eyes on her.
Without a doubt, Zhavia Ward is a talented girl with interesting fashion choices and a hairstyle that won’t go unnoticed. When asked if she feels ready to take one of four finalists’ chairs, she confidently replied “Yes sir!” You go, girl! That’s the winner’s attitude.
Soon, the music goes on, and Khalid’s “Location” echoes through the room.
Wait until you hear Ward’s powerful voice!
We must admit that we were amazed by the vibe Zhavia started giving off as soon as she opened her mouth. The whole performance shows how truly aware of herself she is. She knows who she is as an artist, and that’s the greatest thing about her.
In the end, the judges were speechless, and the audience went wild.
“Yes! That’s the talent the music industry is constantly looking for,” DJ Khaled commented. All four judges had nothing but compliments for the young girl who made their jaws drop—but that’s not all. Wait until you see the comments!
Since it was posted, the video has earned more than 63 million views on YouTube.
Can we talk about the moment when Ward said that she wants to be famous enough to buy a house for her mom one day?
Sadly, Zhavia didn’t win the show, but we’re confident that she earned enough money to buy a beautiful house for her family. Thank you, Zhavia, for sharing your beautiful voice with the world. We loved what you did with “A Whole New World,” and we wish you the best of success in the future!
