Fernanda Brandao (also known by her former stage name, Laava) is a dance music artist from Brazil. Her first single, "Wherever You Are (I Feel Love)," was a big hit worldwide, although it was her only song produced under the name Laava. After the release of that song, Brandao took a break from the music industry and did some modeling work, also obtaining a fitness trainer license. She ultimately returned to music, however, and joined the latino pop group Hot Banditoz. Currently, Brandao is a member of the judging panel on the German music competition show, Deutschland sucht den Superstar.
