People of Honor
As we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we encourage you to listen to music that speaks to the vast experiences of AAPI cultures. The plethora of genres AAPI performers used to express themselves echo the greatness of our God. The Office of Intercultural Engagement has curated a playlist on Spotify titled, "People of Honor", to celebrate the creativity, strength, and beauty of the AAPI community.
We are grateful for the work of Wheaton's very own Prof. Soh-Hyun Park Altino, Dr. Jennie Oh Brown, Prof. Eurydice Choi, Prof. Diane Chou, Prof. Lilian Chou, Prof. Misook Kim, Prof. Sung Hoon Mo, Prof. Sarah Yeo, and Dr. Gina Yi. These gifted scholars and artists honor the Lord and share their expertise and experiences both nationally and internationally. Listen to their music featured in our "People of Honor" Spotify playlist.
Still, there is more to hear and learn from the voices of 48 Asian countries, 25 Pacific Island nations, and other national subcultures found all around the world than the fifty songs in this playlist can convey. The experiences of the AAPI community reach far beyond music. We invite you to seek that understanding as your read, listen, genuinely connect, and engage with the AAPI treasures that are all around you.
We do not own the rights to any of the music curated in this playlist.
