"14 Year Old Artist Is Leading His Generation To Create Change"

If you've marched for black lives in the Lehigh Valley, you may have seen Javier Gooden perform his monologue or music at local protests.

“Performing allows me to be able to take my emotions and my persona being able to transform it into the character that I'm portraying," says Gooden. "The reason why I love to make these songs and I like to use these songs to help spread our causes, because not everyone is going to help spread our cause and me being a part of the Black community and me part of the next generation, I have to take that on for myself.”

Gooden says he wants people to learn how his America is different than the one those who do not have Black skin live in.

"I’m a young Black boy in America and I know that it's not always going to be easy trying to grow up in this society, especially if I have a target on my back because being Black should not have to be a death sentence."

So he's using his experience to rise up and fight for justice.

Gooden wants his generation to create the change that's needed in America.

"Always use your voice, no matter what, even if you feel like you have something to say and you don't want to say, say it anyway, because what you say is important. What you say can help change the narrative and our corrupt society that we have today. So never be afraid to use your voice."

"SWAG" by Javier Gooden 
(Available on all plaforms March 2023)



Javier Gooden is a teenage Actor, Dancer, Songwriter, Vocalist and Rapper from Brooklyn, New York.

As a young musician, his style engages with his generation, but his music still speaks to an old soul because of his soulful singing and lyrical flow. His musical style is versatile enough to branch into any genre. 

Music has always come naturally to him. From the age of 12 is when he realized that he could use his own melodies and lyrics to tell his story. Javier realized that making music was something he wanted to pursue a career in after listening to Jaden Smith’s album “SYRE.” Listening to Jaden Smith express himself with his art, inspired Javier to explore his own artistic capabilities. 

Javier is also influenced by other recording artists such as Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Jay-Z, Cordae, Travis Scott, and Logic. Javier’s abilities as a Vocalist were influenced by his parents’ musical taste. By exposing him to R&B and Gospel artists such as New Edition, El Debarge, Tevin Cambell, John P. Kee, Kirk Franklin and Kenny Greene of INTRO, the soulfulness in his voice is ever-present. 

When it comes to creating music Javier says, “I am motivated to create music that inspires and connects with others. Writing my own music makes me feel like I am in control of my narrative.” In the summer of 2022, Javier released his first mixtape “Young Kings Wear Crowns Vol.1.” It is the first in a series of projects highlighting his original music, and his take on other dope artists tracks. Utilizing his love of the stage, Javier performed in several events and festivals over the summertime to promote his mixtape. In early 2023, Javier released his first official single and video for, “Why Do You Run?”, which is now available on all platforms. 

Javier is not one to limit his aspirations. He plans to break into sync music placements so that his music will be heard on Film and TV.  Javier’s goal is to continue to work hard so that he can be acknowledged for being one of, if not THE Gen-Z artist who will revive inspiring and truthful rap music, along with authentic soulful R&B.
