"Modern siren Kelleia honors her mother's sights toward highest peak"
Easy Reader News
My dad immigrated to the US in 1971 when he was 8-and-a-half. He and his family lived in a 1-bedroom apartment in Lawndale that cost $80 a month. Then a 2-br in Huntington Park. Then they got their first house in Montebello. I’m the first generation of American-born, Korean persons on both my mom’s and dad’s side. My explorer ancestors landed here more than 45 years ago. My tribe chose this as their home. Can we see each other as the beautiful spirits-in-bodies we are? Can we all make some room for young darker-skinned-than-White children to shine in this country? 🌈 This would be very wonderful. This would bring peace 🌲🧠💗
Now I see, if I wear a mask I can fool the world, but I’ll never fool my heart 👹
s/o og @xtina love herrrr
Mood, cause I’m out here trying to decolonize and sometimes a scoop of graceful indignation needs to be added to the brew 🧙🏼♀️ oh right it’s the New Moon in Gemini no wonder I’m feeling so ablaze. Holding space for myself and my feelings before anyone else’s today 🌹 that to me is freedom and equality for POC women. Don’t dump your issues or project onto us. We’ve been holding your shit for years and its just not happening anymore, k? ☯️💓😊

‘97 8 30 My mother, supported by a tree, is belaying as I wedge my 6-year-old baby hands into a crevasse in this rock face. This is Love right here, and exactly the reminder I needed today. Mother Earth helps my mom who helps me...and the cycle continues. Women empower other women, people help other people. I’m realizing the best thing I can do in this life is write some damn good songs, so I’m getting on it y’all! And also spend more time with people I love. And teach and give and shine. Going to have a housewarming party soon. But first, hanging this baby up on my wall right now! Love ya, hope you have an inspiring day with random bursts of laughter! 💗🌈🌲
cause sometimes you really do feel this far away . . .
but distance enables perspective ✨💡✨

Won’t be at @libfestival and feeling extreme fomo about it now that everyone is otw 💗 so here’s me last year performing “Majesty” on the Beacon Stage with my friends @thefuriesla
It’s fun to see how much I’ve grown in one year, this song is now out - have you heard it? 😊 link in bio
Instead of hitting up all the festivals this year trying to find how I fit, I’ve decided to put my energy into working hard in the studio to make the music that will get me that main stage set 💫
y’all have fun now - LIB is always my fave festival !! So much fomo 🤪😭💗 who wants to play (music) with me this weekend?
