A lot has happened to the manual worker from Daejeon over the past 8 months, and every day for the next few weeks until we reach the present moment, every aspect of that journey will be told.
This story paused at the point just before Sung Bong was invited to play at the Shani Rigsbee event entitled 'We Hear Your Voice', an event designed to achieve global awareness and strengthen solidarity through the unity of musical figures of hope. They would all come together to sing the song "We Hear Your Voice" which was also written by Shani herself to be performed by the entire ensemble (the lyrics to the song are enclosed in the gallery below).
There was initially some concern and worry as the target of $4500 in order to pay for Sung Bong's travel expenses was not reached. But where there is a will there is a way and he was able to make the trip and perform on August 4th 2012 to a packed Greek Theater in Los Angeles, USA. Shani personally expressed how overwhelmed she was upon hearing Sung Bong's story while looking on the internet and how she knew there and then that he just had to be involved in the inspirational event.
A full video of the event will be available soon and all the proceeds from the downloadable single help promote the welfare of children throughout the world.
