With a lush and diverse voice, Norman Kim proves his multi-instrumentalist worth with his new single titled ‘Just Like You’. A wonderful blend of an anthem, rock, pop, and vocal bliss, Norman really displays his chops in the range of classical to rock to pop to the cinematic theater, Norm reinvents a few genres by blending what he loves and making it his own. This is music at its best.
“I wrote this song right after I co-wrote the music for a Superbowl commercial about immigration in 2017. I began to think about my own life and about how being a child of immigrants really affects the way I am perceived in America. People of different colors, genders, orientation, etc. are treated differently, even if it’s ever so slight. At the end of the day, we’re all the same, and we want to be not only treated but also seen as equals.”
