Global music icons Lea Salonga and Apl.de.Ap are leading fellow Filipino stars participating in the #StopAllHate #ShareLove music video as part of Asia Society’s global campaign to end violence against Asians in the United States and around the world.
Broadway royalty Lea Salonga and Black Eyed Peas’ rapper Apl.de.ap lead the star-studded cast of singers performed a new rendition of the Rodgers and Hammerstein song about bigotry and intolerance of other races, “You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught”, as a response to hate crimes targeting people of Asian descent in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The song originally composed for the 1950s hit musical “South Pacific” was updated with new lyrics to reflect a positive message and show the world that people can learn to love rather than hate.
Other featured artists in the music video released on June 21, 2021, include Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Daniel Padilla, Jed Madela, Jaya, Cris Villonco, Moira Dela Torre, and Sam Concepcion. Mon Faustino provided the musical and vocal arrangement.
Aside from the Filipino singers, Asia Society’s #StopAsianHate campaign also featured broadcasters Korina Sanchez and Karen Davila who shared messages of hope to Filipino and Asian American communities.
Apl.de.Ap and other Filipino American stars are using their voices to call for a stop to anti-Asian discrimination and hate crimes in the United States.
NBA superstar Jordan Clarkson recently stepped in to restore a Filipino and Asian fusion food truck in Utah after it was spray-painted with anti-Asian and racist messages of hate.
