David will be performing a private show at Summit. He answered a few questions so you can get to know him better.
Q: What’s your best memory as a musician?
A: First thing that comes to mind is when I had a show in Indonesia at the Hard Rock Cafe. The fans were singing along to just about every song I sang, as opposed to just the more popular ones. That made me feel pretty good and it sounded like a big choir was backing me up.
Q: Where do you think you’ll be/what will you be doing in 5 years?
A: Hopefully I’ll be doing more music!
Q: What’s your favorite thing to do during down time when you’re touring?
A: Home-y stuff. Cleaning my house, going grocery shopping, hanging with friends. Writing songs. Hiking is fun too.
Q: How do you think you’ve been changed by music? Do you think music has the power to change the world?
A: Music definitely has the ability to change the world. I know it has changed me in one way or another. Music is pretty amazing.
Q: What superpower would you want to have? Why?
A: Teleportation. I travel a lot and I’m tired of airplanes. I just want to get to my destination as fast as possible.
Q: How did you get interested in North Korea?
A: Being Korean, I was always fascinated with North Korea. I think their way of life and especially the way they portray their military and strength was a bit peculiar, but along with that, I learned that the poverty issues over there were pretty serious.
Q: Why do you think people should care about North Korea?
A: They should care because there are people out there being treated inhumanely.
Q: Why are you excited for Summit?
A: I’m excited to meet people from different walks of life and to share my music to people who may not have heard of me and I’m happy to work with people who make the world a better place.
Now that you know a bit more about David, meet him at Summit.
