From the YouTube video:
Ban together in solidarity and show them our community regardless of race. Official Links: https://linktr.ee/thehotellobby/ Directed & Edited by Johnny Lee Produced by Jessica del Mundo, Gilbert Le, David Christopher Lee Featuring Lisa Ling, Simu Liu, Dante Basco, Kelly Hu, Hayden Szeto, Michael Campion, Christian Isaiah, Cade Michael, Henry Fong, KLAXX, Kaleena Zanders, Mighty Shock LA, Kevin Krieder, Kelly Mi Li & Kane Lin
In response to the staggering increase of anti-Asian sentiment and violence in the last year, Lee hopes all people will speak out. The music video shares community resources and ends with a call-to-action to report all hate crimes or incidents.
Tai from THE HOTEL LOBBY says “We didn’t meet this moment, this moment hit us dead on. We were JUST protesting for ME and my family to be recognized as a human…less than a year later, we gotta remind people HE and his family are humans too.” “What began as an anthem to support #BlackLivesMatter has evolved into uplifting the AAPI community and the LGBTQIA+ community – really, empowerment for all people,” said Lee, who wrote, recorded, and performed “Tonight” as one half of the DJ/EDM duo THE HOTEL LOBBY. In the last year, the discrimination, oppression, and violence against minorities in this country have been magnified and brought to light on a scale never before seen. While these reprehensible acts of racism have been on display worldwide, it is still not over. We must do our part to unite all people and end racism once and for all.
The song “Tonight” was not only a way for us to express our anger and anguish during this time of crisis, but we wanted to show our support for all our brothers and sisters of every ethnicity, race and sexual orientation. We must do our part. We must speak out. We must unite. Join us in spreading a message of love and solidarity to all those still fighting for their equality and humanity.
