ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not Alone is an album of love, celebrating my intimate relationship with Jesus. The story of Mary pouring the perfume on Jesus’ feet is my favorite passage in the Bible, it is how I see myself whenever I play the piano. I bring all my frustration, hurt and pain with everything I am and everything I have, and pour it all down at the feet of Jesus. The intimacy between Mary and Jesus is a powerful and beautiful illustration of God’s equal love for women. Jesus publicly defends her against the accusations from the men and Jesus completely accepts Mary for who she is. Her tears are genuine and unpretentious and the perfume she poured down on Jesus’ feet was the only thing Jesus carried on him when he was stripped of everything and naked on the cross.

In our chaotic world where hatred can triumph over kindness, violence can conquer beauty and bigotry can overshadow tolerance, it is my mission as an artist to create music carrying the gentle, meek, yet powerful, loving and compassionate Spirit of Christ. Although as a single woman of color, and an immigrant who has experienced discrimination and sexual assaults in the past, I stand as a witness of how the cleansing blood of Jesus and his teaching of forgiveness restores dignity, self-value, poise and grace. Instead of seeing myself as a victim, who has the right to be bitter and resentful, I press forward to stand proudly, strongly and elegantly as a beautiful Child of God.

This collection of hymns contains diverse musical elements from various cultures as it reflects my rich and abundant life, with all the different ethnic communities I am part of in New York City. Although being a composer and a single woman can be lonely at times, I am deeply blessed to have friends who inspire and expand my horizon and who makes me feel that I am not alone even during the darkest hours. We stand together to build a community, advocating freedom, equality, and most importantly, Love.

Music is a gift from God, not only to sanctify our souls, but also to serve as a stream of healing that brings comfort to the brokenhearted. It also transcends our negative emotions and frustration into something that is positive and uplifting. No matter how disappointed I feel and what oppositions and obstacles come in my way, I will continue to make music that brings hope to the inclusive society I dream and fight for. I pray that my music can touch your heart, that you can find comfort and encouragement while listening to my stories of love and pain, and to be reminded that you are not struggling alone either.
