MUSIC - MILCK - Connie Lim: Singer, songwriter, producer


"MILCK is a singer, songwriter, producer, and advocate who is known for cowriting and performing “Quiet," the viral sensation that became known as the unofficial anthem of the Women’s March, Billboard’s No.1 Protest Song, and a featured selection on NPR’s American Anthem Series. In 2020, her single with Atlantic Records, “If I Ruled the World,” was named song of the week by Time Magazine. Her 2021 song “I Belong” was featured in the CBS special “See Us”, a nationwide special to bring more tolerance and safety for the AAPI community.

As MILCK plans for her album release, she is also finding tremendous joy in writing and producing songs for other artists, like John Legend and Phillipa Soo (Hamilton). The Planned Parenthood Champion of Choice Award Recipient has funneled her advocacy work into the Somebody’s Beloved Fund, which she established with her team in 2020 to use her songs to generate resources for ten grassroots beneficiaries that build power around racial justice and healing. MILCK has pledged for every song on her upcoming 2022 album to benefit The Somebody’s Beloved Fund." ~ Website About

MILCK Is Combating Racial Injustice Through Music:
"Our Country Needs to Evolve and Heal"

"Like many of us, the pandemic has forced MILCK to recalibrate and be open to surrendering to things she can't control. "It's been an up-and-down roller coaster as a lot of people are dealing with mental health highs and lows," she told me. "I've really been turning into my creativity. I'm showing up every day to the studio, and I don't know what is going to happen. Sometimes I write a pretty cool song. Sometimes I don't, but I just show up to create some type of consistency in my life.""

Singer MILCK Is Ready To 'Turn Tears Into Gold' Again After Viral Women's March Anthem

"In surveying her own musical catalog, MILCK says she’s devoted to crafting “healing anthems for the human spirit.”

The Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter’s new single, “If I Ruled the World,” is no exception. In it, she contemplates what it would be like to have a herculean ability to impact the planet. Amid percussion and rallying choruses, she vows to address social issues like racism and immigration; with tongue firmly in cheek, she’d also see about getting her rent lowered and a sequel to “Fight Club” made."
