There was something so good and so personal about seeing singer, songwriter Kevin So up close with an intimate audience of 100.

With an acoustic guitar, a Steinway piano and a dash of a harmonica, So connected with each song and showed how much he cares about his audience.

At Eliot Unitarian Chapel’s celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, So sang over half Asian-related songs in his two-set, two-hour performance Saturday, May 4, 2019.

With a 20-year catalog of songs, So opened with “Average Asian American” and closed with a “A Brighter Day.” In between he sang two songs, “Angel” and “America” from his soon-to-be released album “Soul: Speaking of Universal Language.”

Paying homage to immigrants in “Our America,” So sang, “My country tis of thee, celebrate our legacy, weave us in your tapestry, write a page in history. This is America.”

About 70 persons attended the pre-concert video, panel discussion and Q & A, “The Myth of the Model Minority.” The moderator was Eling Lam (R1), former president of OCA-Asian Pacific American AdvOCAtes. Panelists were (from right) Caroline Fan, former president of OCA-APAA; Rumi Kato Price, PhD and Washington University School of Medicine; and Emma Prats and Brian Nelson, members of Eliot Chapel.
