Singer Agnez Mo released her newest single “Promises” on Sunday.
Let me tell you a little secret: We didn’t plan on releasing this song today…we knew we would release it someday, but not today. I recorded this song a few months back, only knowing that this song touches my heart and speaks to my soul. I knew then I HAD to record it. This song is very special to me. . When I got involved in this amazing movement - charity event #ourIDENTITY by @fareastmovement , I knew.. I just knew I had to perform this song. . In this situation we’re all in, it’s tempting to dwell on the negativity. Because IT IS BAD. A situation that we never would’ve predicted. But dont we all need a little something to remind us that God is faithful, he has been, he is, and he always will be? And that “IT IS NOT OVER TIL HE SAYS IT’S FINISHED”?? . The world needs more love. We need more love. Praying for everyone fighting this situation: Fighting Covid 19 that obviously impacted our economy, fighting INJUSTICE, DISCRIMINATION and PREJUDICE, we stand with you. . #AGNEZMO #PROMISESbyAGNEZMO
The singer wrote on Instagram that the song was recorded a few days ago and was released as part of a fundraising effort for COVID-19 relief with the #ourIDENTITY charity campaign.
On Saturday, Agnez performed in an international COVID-19 charity concert, IDENTITY: Project Blue Marble. Created by James Roh, aka Prohgress, and Kev Nish of American electronic hip-hop group Far East Movement, the project aimed to provide aid and represent Asians in a positive way during Asian and Pacific American Heritage Month in May. IDENTITY: Project Blue Marble was supported by companies Gold House, Transparent Arts, Pacific Bridge Arts and Amazon Music, with all proceeds donated to nonprofit United Way’s COVID-19 relief efforts.
“The world needs more love. We need more love. Praying for everyone fighting this situation: Fighting COVID-19 that obviously impacted our economy, fighting INJUSTICE, DISCRIMINATION and PREJUDICE, we stand with you,” she wrote.
The song is a ballad with a pinch of religious touch. A simple, black and white music video of the song is available on her YouTube channel.
The 33-year-old singer has been one of the most popular entertainers in Indonesia since starting her career in 1992. She jumped into acting in her teenage years, starring in several television series.
In 2014, she released her debut international single, "Coke Bottle", featuring renowned musicians Timbaland and T.I. Three years later, she released her first international album, X, and began to get recognition in the United States. She has collaborated with American singers, rappers and DJs, including Michael Bolton, Chris Brown and French Montana. Her latest collaboration, "Girl" with Steve Aoki and Desiigner, topped Indonesian iTunes Top Songs in early April. (gis/wng)
