You're Not Alone (Japan Tsunami 2011 benefit song)

We watched in horror as the news flooded in - texts, chat messages, TV reports - of the tragedy that struck our Japanese brothers & sisters on Friday.

As Asian-Americans, we couldn't help but see the parallels with the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2008 earthquake in Sichuan.

George Takei said on twitter - "Today, we are all Japanese".

It's easy to look at the news and have our emotions stirred, but not actually contribute in a productive fashion. Model Minority wants to use our music to encourage our friends, fans, and family to respond graciously and generously.

A remix featuring other artists (both Asian-American and non) is coming soon. If you are interested in contributing to the remix (singing, rapping, adding instrumentation, or providing a new beat), email
