The team of performers for the 70th anniversary event commemorating Korea’s liberation to be held on August 15 at the Lincoln Memorial arrived on the 13.
Composer Kim Hyung-suk and recording artists Na Yoon Kwon and Yangpa were greeted by Young Jun Kim, and straightway began concert preparations.
The event is organized by the One Korea Coalition, consisting of numerous individuals and organizations who support the One Dream One Korea campaign to promote a peaceful reunification.
The duo will be accompanied by a unity choir made up of representatives from local church choirs.
Singer Yangpa expressed, “I am very impressed by the diaspora Koreans who have started a movement that is not easy even for Koreans living in Korea.” She continued, “It is an honor to sing for unification at this significant event that has been made possible through the cohesion of these Korean-Americans groups.”
