Lavie is the latest discovery of Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer Ben Margulies, who played a major part in breaking Mariah Carey by co-writing her first three record-breaking No. 1 singles -- "Vision of Love," "Love Takes Time," "Someday" -- which launched her worldwide success.
Margulies and Lavie are currently finishing tracks for her forthcoming debut. The first completed song, "If I Only Knew," appears on the soundtrack to the Jeff Bridges movie, Stick It.
