Aviva Mongillo Bio
The singer was born in Canada by Maria and Frank Mongillo on 6 February 1998. She has a younger brother, Nicolas, who arrived three years later in 2001, and a cousin, Alyssa Mongillo.
As a child, with the pitiful clatter of her feet against the ground, she not only brought joy to the people who knew her, but her voice warmed the hearts of the many who heard her sing. It was not surprising then that her friends discovered her ability to sing even before she knew she could sing. Left to her alone, it was all about acting and drama, and she loved the stage.
It was only at a karaoke party that Aviva attended with friends as a child that she realized she could sing and has been singing ever since. So she put the image of a singer in her heart and started to become one, even though she doubted her abilities at first. At the age of 10, Aviva started her singing career and also performed in school programs. Not only did she stop singing, but she went a step further to refine her skills by taking guitar lessons from the age of 12.
Aviva translated the beauty of what she loves into what she does and played the male lead in the theatrical production of Pippin. A challenging role, one would say, but that’s what she loves. Something that challenges her. She has also acted in other projects, most notably as Alya Kendrick in the Family Channel’s television series Backstage (2016), where she made her acting debut.

The album’s singles include Wild, Hurt Like Hell, Hype and Princesses Don’t Cry. The hype has received over 800,000 hits on YouTube. The EP is followed by a merchandising line for their songs.
