One of the greatest thing about watching the asian-american music community grow and expand is witnessing how quickly they are to try and give back and help those in need. Just we posted about the Harmony for the Heart event, we’ve been notified about Home for the Holla’Days. A fundraising event meant to further the cause of helping ‘Aid for the Children Without Parents’ organization. If you’re in or around the San Francisco Bay Area next weekend I encourage you to go out and support them. Not to mention you’d be able to catch performances by Magnetic North, Denizen Kane, Taiyo Na, Sam Geunjin Kang, and Vudoo Soul.
Inspired by the injustice of human trafficking, especially of children, the biggest APIA Hip Hop and R&B stars, activists, and chefs are joining forces to create a night full of music, food, and saving lives. On December 19, we invite you to join us at HOME FOR THE HOLLA’DAYS, a night of music to move your soul and a cause to move your heart.
With ALL proceeds benefiting the Aid for Children Without Parents’ “Saving Children in Crisis” Program, the concert features California natives Magnetic North, Vudoo Soul, and Geunjin, along with the rappers Taiyo Na, Denizen Kane, all backed by the Home:word House Band, an amazing group of musicians from all over the country. On this night we honor HOME for hella reasons:
(1) Most of these artists are coming HOME to the Bay for this concert – what up what up!
(2) We are building a HOME for our Asian American community through the arts
(3) Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the HOMELAND
(4) Most importantly, we aim to help ACWP bring these children back home
So bring your family, your friends, and EVERYONE you know. There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than by rocking out to fresh music, eating delicious traditional Vietnamese food, and building a stronger APIA community committed to justice. ‘Tis the season for giving – come join us!
