If I Am to Rule, Then May I Submit to Love w/ MILCK

(S3, EP 11) We reached our final guest to close out Season 3 continuing the theme, "Where Do We Stand?".  MILCK (Connie Lim) is an Asian-American recording artist who first received international attention for her song "Quiet" which became viral during the Women's March in DC in 2017.  It would be named by Billboard Music as "The Protest Song of the Year" in 2017.  We discuss the impact that the song has had on her work as an artist and activist. She talks about her struggles breaking through as an Asian-American artist, and her hopes to use her music to help build solidarity with other marginalized communities.  MILCK talks about her recently released EP, "Into Gold" which is available on all streaming services.  MILCK also surprised me by performing her new single, "Somebody's Beloved".  Check this episode out for more!

MILCK (Connie Lim) is a soul-cial change recording artist who gained international recognition when her song "Quiet" went viral and became coined as the unofficial anthem of The Women's March.  "Quiet" is translated into multiple languages by all over the world and has been featured as part of NPR's American Anthem series.  In 2017, Billboard called “Quiet” the No. 1 protest song of the year. “Quiet” is also the ending theme song to Broadway play Gloria, honoring Gloria Steinem. MILCK has performed this anthem as survivors of Larry Nassar walked the stage during the 2018 ESPYS.

MILCK has been honored to share her songs and thoughts on the same stages as Michelle Obama, Oprah, Cheryl Strayed, Glennon Doyle, Jason Mraz, Yoko Ono, and Ani DiFranco. MILCK partnered with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys) to create her EP entitled Into Gold, as shared by Reese Witherspoon and TIME magazine.

MILCK founded the #ICANTKEEPQUIET fund to support nonprofits that invest in underserved communities. Visit for more info
