The Gala celebrated 2022’s A100 List, the definitive honor that recognizes the 100 APIs who have most significantly impacted American culture and society in the last year. The evening was hosted in collaboration with Meta — to further a long-standing partnership with Gold House thathonors and supports the API community through innovative programming, such as Meta Gold Talks, and convenes distinguished API voices in conversation as well as trains API-led start-ups in-depth.

Gold House specially recognized Meta as a long-time supporter of advancing opportunity for all, and shared updates regarding their ongoing partnership to amplify, educate and grow influential voices across the Asian diaspora with a focus on unlocking economic opportunity.

After the gala, guests stayed on for the afterparty, hosted in collaboration with Hennessy X.O, with a curated late-night bites menu from Panda Restaurant Group and custom boba drinks from Bopomofo Cafe.

The gala partnered with We Can Do This to amplify their vaccine and booster resources, without which, an in-person event would have been impossible.

Reyanna Maria – Used Two

19-year-old Melbourne-based Filipino pop/R&B singer and songwriter Reyanna Maria serves up a sizzling new single: “Used 2”.

Get it HERE via Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic Records.

On the track, an airy beat brushes up against her smooth delivery as she warns, “I might throw it back on your man like you used to.” With attitude and swagger, she continues to flex with a flirty promise, “Your man coming home with me, because I know he don’t like the way you do.” The track highlights her dynamic vocals, provocative lyrics, and undeniable energy. 

It arrives on the heels of “What’s Ur Sign?” The latter has amassed over 1 million streams to date in addition to reeling in critical acclaim.  Billboard named it among the “R&B/Hip-Hop Fresh Picks of the Week,” and claimed: “the track is catchy and confident, setting the laid-back singer up for an equally lovable follow-up release.” Bongmines Entertainment attested, “‘What’s Ur Sign?’ contains a relatable narrative, flirtatious lyrics, and an ear-pleasing vocal flow.”

Reyanna exploded with the buzzing single “So Pretty” and its Tyga-assisted Official Remix. Right out of the gate, HIGHSNOBIETY named her among “Creators to Watch Right Now” and raved, “Reyanna Maria is the face of a new league of home-grown artists who are using social media to take the reigns of their careers and cultivating their presence in the music industry on their own terms.” Meanwhile, she also picked up plugs from Forbes, HotNewHipHop, and more.

“So Pretty” initially came to life when Reyanna sang on a duet challenge on TikTok. The spur-of-the-moment sound that was created from the video exploded with over 20 million views and 1 million-plus TikTok videos. On its heels, the original track posted up 45 million-plus streams and counting to date. Videos using “So Pretty” were created by Chrissy Teigen (34M Followers), Bella Poarch (56.4M Followers), Alicia Keys (20.7M Followers), Vanessa Bryant (14.3M Followers) and many more!

Even when clutching the tiny microphone of her wired earbuds and serenading a smartphone camera, Reyanna Maria exudes the kind of charisma and attitude meant for the global spotlight. Within a few months’ time, the 19-year-old Melbourne-based Filipino songstress has already inspired 1 million-plus TikTok videos and racked up over 12 million streams. By the age of fourteen, she started to fill a notebook with lyrics and song ideas. She posted covers online and mimicked idols such as Ariana Grande and Jhené Aiko. As part of an online challenge, she went live on TikTok to sing on a beat. The initial clip of “So Pretty” exploded with nearly 10 million views as they finished the song together in two more successive posts, totaling 22 million views. Victor Victor Worldwide founder Steven Victor signed Reyanna on the spot once he found out about her video. Now, the official release of “So Pretty” [feat. Tyga] formally introduces Reyanna Maria as a fiery force for pop and R&B.

mazie added, “Working with Chloe on ‘not okay’ was such a dream. This was my first time getting to work with another artist and Chloe is a literal shining star. We had so much fun. I really enjoyed writing the song—I think everyone has been going through being not okay and I hope people find company in knowing that we aren’t okay either.”

About Chloe Moriondo:

At age eighteen, Chloe Moriondo professes to be an “internet kid,” yet she tackles overwhelming infatuation, listless daydreams and first love with keen empathy that’s unsearchable online. With her relatable, confessional lyrics and idiosyncratic humor, the singer-songwriter has built a devoted fanbase of millions, sharing her authentic self to create a genuine connection with her listeners. Moriondo shared her major-label debut album Blood Bunny this spring to critical acclaim, with The New York Times crowning the record a “Critic’s Pick.” The record also garnered additional praise from The FADER, Pitchfork, Billboard, NYLON, UPROXX and more. Following the release, Moriondo made her television debut on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and appeared soon after on The Late Late Show With James Corden.

About mazie:

Pairing dark, fatalistic lyrics with shiny, alt-pop arrangements, mazie’s music is as infectious as it is unpredictable, a playful take on modern malaise wrapped up in a sugar-coated psychedelia. Her writing exudes a child-like innocence, but with an eerie, off-kilter twist, like watching old home movies through a funhouse mirror. She will release her debut EP the rainbow cassette on August 25th via Good Boy / Virgin. Recent EP single “dumb dumb” received critical acclaim from The New York Times, Consequence of Sound, Ones To Watch and more, with BBC Radio 1 featuring her as a “Next Wave Artist” upon release.
