Guitarist Toshi Yanagi, and pianist for Annie Lenox and eight other Grammy Award-winners Ed Roth. A Seattle-based Robert Chinn Foundation launched the Asian Hall of Fame Medical Response Fund during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month to fulfill a critical need for PPE and help reverse Asia phobia.
Virtuoso violinist, concert pianist, and 13-language soprano Maki Mae will present uplifting favorites including "You Raise Me Up" and Schubert's "Ave Maria." 11-year old Aubrey Leonard will perform Queen's "We are the Champions."
The Mother's Day Concert debuted the Asian Hall of Fame PSA featuring Olympic medalists Apolo Ohno, J.R. Celski, Nathan Adrian and Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan, Monster Products founder and CEO Noel Lee, Dancing with the Stars Cheryl Burke, Emmy Award-winning producer Marc Anthony Nicholas, former White House physician and retired Navy admiral Dr. Connie Mariano, and Iron Chef Morimoto. The Foundation released its anti-hate open letter and joined forces with Admerasia, NextShark, and other high-impact groups in the Racism Is Contagious movement. Hospitals and workers from across the country have already requested urgent PPE shipments through the Asian Hall of Fame online request form.
Recently the Asian Hall of Fame increases cross-cultural collaboration and Asian excellence in mainstream music with their charity album Seasonal Songbook. Proceeds launch the Asian Hall of Fame's Arts for All program that supports trauma, war, and human trafficking survivors.
Seasonal Songbook debuts 13-language vocalist Maki Mae and iconic collaborations with music royalty such as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Robby Krieger of The Doors and Ed Roth (Annie Lenox, Joe Walsh). Ringo Starr's engineer Bruce Sugar mixed the record.
Seasonal Songbook represents Maki Mae's most requested pieces spanning centuries of music and will be considered for the 2022 GRAMMY Awards. The opening song "My Favorite Things" is the first time an Asian artist has recorded with Robby Krieger. It will also be the first time that GRAMMY Pop Duo of the Year will receive a submission from Krieger and an Asian artist.
Thirteen-language vocalist and classically-trained violinist Maki Mae is Chinese, Korean, and Japanese-American and has headlined crossover performances around the world. Her Skrillex remix made number one for five weeks on electronic music charts. Maki Mae's Mother's Day Concert for the Asian Hall of Fame Covid-19 fund generated 716 million impressions and 243 media mentions in America and Asia. courtesy of: prnewswire
