about

18MillionRising presents Voices of Our Vote: #MyAAPIVote Album - a compilation album featuring 32 politically empowering tracks by an eclectic mix of Asian American musicians. Given the current political climate of anti-immigrant rhetoric and increased racial tension, turning out to vote as an AAPI community this November 8th is more important than ever. At 18MillionRising, we believe that music can shift hearts and minds, and with the release of the Voices of Our Vote: #MyAAPIVote Album, we believe music can activate Asian America to the polls.

This album was created in partnership with the Asian North Americans music curation platform TRAKTIVIST (traktivist.com); with Kollaboration (www.kollaboration.org) who supports APIs in arts and entertainment by showcasing and connecting creative talents; with the oldest currently running Asian American open mic space Tuesday Night Project (tuesdaynightproject.org); and the South Asian diaspora music and online mixtape site Mishthi Music (mishthimusic.com). All proceeds earned from the album will be donated to 18MillionRising (18MillionRising.org), an organization promoting AAPI civic engagement, influence, and movement by leveraging the power of technology and social media.

lyrics

Please
Come with me
To the tops of the peaks
Said you love
Now we are home
She’s
On our skin
Is the air caving in
Knee deep
In all of our sleep
There on our screen
Are the speakers of we
Come all
Gather as one
Brother
We bleed
So let’s rise to our feet
Choose for change to come

All I know is
Stand
Our color’s wide
Speak freely
Running sweet to the center
With our noise
Seek whom to lead us
Paint glory
In the nation that saved us
With sisters that held us through it all


Some days
I know
It’s a fast-sinking goal
To see
A beautiful home
Love
It can bleed
Be the shadow of eve
Become
A face we don’t know
But what
It all means
Be the change at the seams
Look here babe
Let’s better our sight
Life
Let it in
Let it humble our skin
Fill up
All of my lungs

So I will breathe and
Bridge
It’s time we bring our souls together
All the numbers we have
All the rights in our hands
Our movement will catch
Onto young hearts
And all they’ll know is to
