MILCK is a singer, songwriter, producer, and advocate who has been an impactful voice in the advancement of human rights since the well-known 2017 viral performance of her song “Quiet” during the Women’s March. “Quiet” became the unofficial anthem of the movement, was named Billboard’s No.1 Protest Song, and was selected for NPR’s American Anthem Series. The City of Los Angeles featured MILCK as a leader in positive change and influence for the AAPI Community in their Together We Speak Exhibit.

In 2020, MILCK’s single “Somebody’s Beloved” came out during the Black Lives Matter protests and chronicles the life-shattering effects of systemic racism in America. MILCK was then invited to participate in The Kellogg Foundation’s National Day of Racial Healing and performed a powerful duet of “Somebody’s Beloved” with acclaimed poet Amanda Gorman.

Following the song’s release, MILCK established The Somebody’s Beloved Fund, to use her music to generate resources for ten grassroots beneficiaries that build power around racial justice, feminism, LGBTQIA+ rights, criminal justice reform and mental health. She has pledged for every song on her upcoming album to benefit The Somebody’s Beloved Fund.

Her 2021 song “I Belong” was written to honor the AAPI community in the wake of the Atlanta shootings that took six Asian women’s lives. The song was recently featured in the GRAMMY Museum’s exhibit Songs of Conscience, Sounds of Freedom alongside H.E.R., Mickey Guyton, Ziggy Marley, Chuck D and more.

The song debuted as part of the “See Us Unite for Change” television special that aired globally on MTV to bring more tolerance and safety for the AAPI community. The following month, MILCK performed an acoustic rendition of “I Belong” for the “Uplifting AAPI Voices: A TIME Summit.”

Last year, Netflix released the original documentary “FOUND,” for which Broadway actress Phillipa Soo (“Hamilton”) and MILCK co-wrote and sang the theme song “Mystery of Me.” The documentary follows three adopted American teenage girls who discover that they are blood-related cousins. Their online meeting inspires the young women to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to China together in search of their heritage. It’s a story that resonates closely with MILCK as an active voice of the AAPI community.

In 2022, MILCK teamed up with BIIANCO, Grammy-winner Autumn Rowe, and Ani DiFranco for an urgent new protest song “We Won’t Go Back,” created in response to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, built from audio recorded during a protest on the steps of the Supreme Court in DC. The song was featured in People Magazine, Billboard, and BUST. MILCK and Ani DiFranco also offered their voices to Billboard’s cover story feature ‘Roe’ Overturned: Music’s Leaders on How to Take Action.

MILCK’s been featured in the Grammy Museum, TIME Magazine, Elle, NPR, The Kelly Clarkson Show and more. She’s spoken at Global Citizen NOW (which also included Billy Porter, Connie Britton and Gayle King), Planned Parenthood’s #BansOffOurBodies Livestream, Vital Voices’ Global HQ Festival alongside Secretary Hillary Clinton and Diane von Furstenberg, featured in the Women Convention by Women’s March, performed for Time Magazine’s Voices of the Future summit, named one of BlogHer’s Social Impact Honorees at the VOTY100, named a mentor for The Wrap’s BE Conference, performed for The Wrap’s Power Women Summit 2022, and participated in New York Fashion Week’s esteemed Survivor Fashion Show. The Planned Parenthood Champion of Choice Award recipient also finds tremendous joy in writing and producing emotional and anthemic songs for other artists, such as John Legend. MILCK’s new full-length album arrives spring 2023.
