MILCK x TOMS

Making music, unlocking doors

To say Connie Lim is an artist with a voice is a dramatic understatement. In fact, the Los Angeles singer, better known by her stage name MILCK, is quickly becoming the voice of this generation's most significant issues. Her song "Quiet" became the anthem of the Women's March after a video of her performing it a capella with an ad-hoc choir went viral. And her latest single, "A Little Peace," written in response to the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, has struck a chord at a moment when gun violence is at the center of the national conversation.

But in a recent Instagram post, MILCK referred to herself not as a voice, or even a singer. Instead, she called herself a locksmith. "I aim to use my music and storytelling to unlock and air out the rooms that harbor fears and pain, and to unlock rooms to nurture our dreams, secretpowers, and light," her post reads. "If we surrender and allow each other to walk towards wherever feels most true, we will be more able to make our communities better."

MILCK recently took the stage at TOMS headquarters for our rally to #EndGunViolenceTogether, and she unlocked something else: a little peace, and a lot of hope.
