Coming up! MILCK, a singer, songwriter, producer, and advocate who has been an impactful voice in the advancement of human rights. She is being honored at the 2022 SHE ROCKS Awards June 2nd, 2022

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 led the song to become the unofficial anthem of the movement. 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. 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 is 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.

Her latest single “Power,” an anthem about self-love and inner strength, was featured in ABC Network’s programming for Women’s History Month. “Power” follows her recent single “Steady as We Go” launched as part of OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network’s primetime special highlighting women around the globe who are impacting change in their communities.

MILCK has performed for Time Magazine’s Voices of the Future summit, was featured in iHeartRadio’s SeeHer Special, was named one of BlogHer’s Social Impact Honorees at the VOTY100, is a Planned Parenthood Champion of Choice Award recipient and was a mentor for The Wrap’s BE Conference talking about the intersection of music and social justice. MILCK’s new full-length album arrives later this year. Find out more at https://www.milckmusic.com/
