Shimmer Gawd hails from Montego Bay, Jamaica, and grew up in South Florida. Her first introduction to music was listening to reggae artists like Bob Marley and Beres Hammond. She was later introduced to Hip-Hop music in the late ’80s when LL Cool J’s “I Need Love” was released and has been a fan ever since! Shimmer Gawd’s love for music, Hip-Hop culture, media, and communications has led to her desire to be behind the mic co-hosting “Friday Night Live” with the one and only Larry Love. Check them out every Friday night from 7 pm-10 pm (ET).
