From her vivacious stage performances to her infectiously rapturous personality, La Vie is a shining example of living life to the fullest! With such a becoming name, “La Vie,” which in French means “The Life,” uses her eclectic contemporary sound as a vehicle to encourage and empower all people to seek out and experience “the life” that God intends for all to have!
Charline Murphy, La Vie’s real name, realized the potential in her gift of singing in the seventh grade, yet didn’t begin pursuing gospel music until the age of 17. Thanks to her middle and high school music teacher/mentor, who contributed greatly to her musical development, La Vie quickly gained the courage to branch out onto the local gospel music scene. Since then, she has been awarded the opportunity to sing and travel with many local artists, as well as national and international recording artists, such as Martha Munizzi, Nigel Lewis, Papa San, Kymani Marley and Joe Pace. La Vie has also recently re-released her first solo album, entitled “Life Music,” and is presently working her second.
The name “La Vie” was birthed out of time of depression and anguish. Before the age of 20, Charline Murphy had already experienced a lifetime of pain and suffering. Though the onslaught of negativity was great, God’s plan for her life proved to be even greater. God literally saved Charline’s life!
Now, employing her sensational collaboration of Soul, R&B, and Neo-Soul musical styles, La Vie’s ministry breaks through the barriers of traditional gospel platforms while expressing her lifelong message: to show the world what God has shown her, that each and every person is not only uniquely designed, but is wonderfully created with vision…with purpose!
It’s time to embrace your greatness! It’s time to live “THE LIFE!”
