May compassion, empathy, and love course through this project. May the song soften the vitriol as we continue to join the racial justice movement.
Milck - Amanda Gorman Duet
Last December I was introduced to Amanda Gorman. We decided to cocreate a piece in honor of the 5th Annual Racial Healing day, in partnership with The Kellogg Foundation. We immediately fangirled over each other. I could feel Amanda's wisdom and strength throughout the process. She created a poem that she reads over my song, “Somebody’s Beloved.” This collaboration is one of my most treasured projects. One of my favorite lines she includes in this poem is about calling people in, vs. calling them out. I hold that idea close to my heart as I navigate our times of growing anti-Asian sentiment, and continued struggles for Black and Brown communities.
On the 4 year anniversary of The Women’s March, 1/21/2021, Brian Williams aired a powerful segment with “Quiet,” to commemorate our collective journey over the last four years. I ended up messaging Brian Williams on Instagram to thank him, and a week later, he and his producers invited me to be on the show to talk about "Somebody's Beloved." I was moved by the fact that we talked about healing and harmony on national news. Brian Williams’ effort in getting to know different types of voices on his show gives me hope.
