THANK YOU!!!

We made it to 100%! Ahhh! I'm so grateful! Thank you! We are making this album! I can't wait to release these songs to you (hopefully by the end of the summer). These songs are NOTHING like anything I've released before, but hopefully different in a good way! They are honest and real and vulnerable... and my prayer is that they inspire and encourage you!

Now that we've reached 100%, let's keep going! Here's what we can do if we reach our STRETCH GOALS:

$12,000 Stretch goal - MUSIC VIDEOS!

Something else I've already been dreaming up for this album is creating MUSIC VIDEOS! I've never done music videos before, but I think this project is perfect for it. There are so many stories to be told through the songs, and I LOVE the idea of combining FILM and MUSIC to do that! I'll be hiring talented videographers to help me produce these videos, so that we can create some quality content. 

So if we hit this stretch goal, that's something you can look forward to! ☺️

Live Album Release Concert @ in Fremont, CA!!! (REVISED) 

Originally I had hoped we could do a live concert at Central Park (Lake Elizabeth) in Fremont, CA, but unfortunately their Performance Pavilion is not open for use to the public during prime season. Therefore, I've changed plans, and we may do a live concert at my home church, Forerunner Christian Church. We may still be able to have it outdoors if the weather is nice. I think it could be pretty cool! So stay tuned for that!! :D

Project Description

Hello! My name is Melody Hwang, and I’m a singer-songwriter, producer, and worship leader. Three years ago, I released my debut album “SUDDENLY” with hit songs, “Beauty Arise,” “Tender Heart,” and “Suddenly.” We were able to release the album both in English and Chinese thanks to my Kickstarter backers!

您好! 我的名字是黃友聞,我是一名創作歌手,製作人和敬拜主領。三年前,我發行了我的首張專輯“剎那間”,其中包括歌曲“美麗翱翔”,“溫柔的心”和“剎那間”。由於我的Kickstarter支持者,我們能夠發布該專輯的中英文版本!


This time around, I’m releasing a LOVE SONGS album. There will be some blues, some jazz, and even some hard rock songs, but the overarching theme is this: Unrequited Love.

這一次,我將發行一張情歌專輯。會有一些藍調音樂,一些爵士樂,甚至還有一些硬搖滾歌曲,但最重要的主題是: 單戀 。

I can’t wait to share these songs with you! I wrote them during a pretty vulnerable time in my life, and the songwriting helped me get through it. To quote Brene Brown, “Art has the power to render sorrow beautiful, make loneliness a shared experience, and transform despair into hope... [This is] the magic of all art: the ability to both capture our pain and deliver us from it at the same time." Like she said, these songs helped capture my pain and deliver me from it at the same time, and I hope it does the same for you!

我等不及要和您分享這些歌了! 我在一生中非常脆弱的時候寫這些歌。歌曲創作幫助我度過難關。引用布雷恩·布朗的話說,“藝術有能力讓悲傷變得美麗,讓孤獨成為一種共享的體驗,並將絕望變成希望...... 這是所有藝術的神奇之處:能夠同時抓住我的痛苦並同時將它從我身上帶走。” 就像她說的那樣,這些歌助於抓住我的痛苦並同時將它從我身上帶走。我希望這些歌能為您做同樣的事情!

Here are some of the songs that will be on the album:


Production-wise, I will be self-producing this album and hiring amazing musicians I know and trust. I’ll also be hiring a professional mixing engineer and mastering engineer.

在製作方面,我將自己製作這張專輯,並聘請我認識和信任的傑出音樂家。 我還將聘請專業的混音工程師和母帶工程師。

Here’s a more detailed cost breakdown (percentage overview) 以下是更詳細的成本明細(百分比概述):

  • Musicians 音樂家 - 30%
  • Mixing 混音- 44%

Risks and challenges

風險和挑戰

The way that Kickstarter works is that it’s an All-Or-Nothing crowd-funding platform, which means that if we don’t reach our goal by the end of the campaign, I get $0... and won't be able to complete this album. :( This is a risk to me, but it protects you as a backer because you won’t be charged any money unless the project is guaranteed to succeed.
Kickstarter是一個全有或全無的眾籌平台,這意味著如果我們在活動結束時沒有達到我們的目標,我會得到0美元......並且無法完成這張專輯 :(。這對我來說是一個風險,但它可以保護您作為支持者,因為除非保證項目成功,否則不會向您收取任何費用。
