Milck + Amanda Gorman Collab
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.
Somebody's Beloved Acapella
In partnership with Culture Surge, we have created an acapella arrangement for the song. We hope you enjoy this performance featuring MILCK, Elisha Jewell, Raye Zaragoza, and Ari Afsar
In the video above, Vienna Teng, the legendary trailblazer for the Asian American music lineage, covers “Somebody’s Beloved”. I’ve been a fan of hers for years. Buying her albums while I was in college helped me see my own dreams to be an Asian American recording artist as a possibility. It’s a tremendous honor to have her cover this song
