LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — To advance humanitarian platforms, Asian Hall of Fame expands their 19th Annual Induction Ceremony to benefit crisis relief for Israel in addition to Academy Fellows. The Class of 2023 will be inducted on October 21, 2023, at the Biltmore Los Angeles.
“Asian and Indigenous achievements, service, and leadership contribute immensely to the prominence of the United States and dignity of our world. This year’s Asian Hall of Fame Inductees exemplify courage and compassion for a more inspired civilization to come,” states Maki Hsieh, President & CEO of Asian Hall of Fame. Ms. Hsieh is also a Recording Academy member and the only Asian board member in the ADL Regional Board.
Induction performers are Artist Ambassadors Robby Krieger (The Doors) and Ed Roth (Joe Walsh), Inductee Hiro Yamamoto (Soundgarden), Maki Mae (America’s Got Talent), Linda Taylor (Namie Amuro), Leo Costa (Herb Alpert), amongst others. Master of Ceremonies is KTLA 5 morning anchor Frank Buckley.
Asian Hall of Fame was established in 2004 by the private Robert Chinn Foundation and will honor the founding family for their 160-years in America. In 2020, Asian Hall of Fame became a nonprofit charity to increase cross-cultural collaboration locally and around the country. Their Maui benefit helped Kako’o Maui reach their $2 million goal. Previously, the charity distributed direct support to Monterey Park families, Ukraine refugees, and the United Nations crisis fund for Turkey.
Since 2019, Academy Fellows have received hands-on projects, mentors, and technical grants. Some receive emergency housing and a living wage. Fellows work while attending schools around the country from Santa Monica College to University of Washington and Northeastern in Boston. This month, over 40 university artist-scholars have joined the Academy through Artellect, an experiential arts installation incubator led by Stanford University-based brothers Peter Lee and Andrew Lee.
