DFSB Press Release:
Three of Asia’s Top Pop Stars Align For A Special Charity Album 3rd Wave ‘I Will Be There’ Will Hit iTunes Worldwide on 10.10.10 (SEOUL KR) : As widely rumored over the past few weeks, the 3rd Wave project album, ‘I Will Be There’, featuring Taiwanese urban music icon < Van Ness Wu >, Korean R&B balladeer < Brian Joo >, and K-Pop boyband sensation < Choi Siwon of Super Junior >, has been confirmed for worldwide release on iTunes music stores on October 10th, 2010. On many levels and in many ways, the 3rd Wave ‘I Will Be There’ collaboration is a unique and unconventional creative departure for these top Asian pop acts. Known for their silky voices and smooth dance moves, all three radically shift their genre gears by not only recording faith-inspired rock tracks but also singing all their lyrics entirely in English. Making this surprise effort even more special is the fact that award-winning American CCM talents such as Lenny LeBlanc (2003 Dove Award for Inspirational Song of the Year) and Tom Hemby (2004 Dove Award for Instrumental Album of the Year) also appear on the album and Baeho Bobby Shin (Recording Engineer for Grammy-nominated artists Jason Mraz and Craig David) serves as the Producer and Arranger for the album. In bringing these accomplished artists from the East and West together, Executive Producer Pastor Johnny Lee expressed that “it’s been such a privilege to work with artists who are so committed to bringing hope to others.” With profits from the album sales being donated to the Food for the Hungry’s ‘IWIN Campaign’ which provides educational support and medical relief to the Ivory Coast in Africa, Van Ness Wu shared his enthusiasm for this charity endeavor by noting, "It's a huge blessing for myself, I believe in making a difference instead of a living." As to what fans should expect from this new album, Brian Joo explained, “When you [fans] support it, you’re getting something out of it and you’re giving something more.” Asked about what motivated him to join 3rd Wave, Choi Siwon of Super Junior confided, “I feel so honored that I could sing on a project like this because you don't get many chances like this.” Available worldwide only on iTunes, the 3rd Wave ‘I’ll Be There’ digital album will contain an exclusive digital booklet as well as bonus HD video interviews from all the participating artists.

Top Asian Pop Stars are A Band of Music Brothers
Champions with a Cause on 3RD WAVE ‘I Will Be There’ album
(for Asian Magazines)
When the stars align there’s a sense of cosmic anticipation for something good to take place. And like a solar alignment that comes once every so often, the shining pop stars of Asia have aligned their positions as celebrity icons to become global role models. As they promote social responsibility, these three celebrated Asian pop stars Brian Joo, Siwon Choi, and Van Ness Wu are leading the way to show that entertainers are not in music just for fame, money, or comfort. Although combined they have a string of tremendous successes and accolades, they’ve put their star status aside to become a musical band of brothers to champion the cause of African education and medical relief work.
To lead the charge, KPop artist Brian Joo was the first to join onto the project as the lead vocalist. As a 10 year veteran in the industry, the growth, maturity, and experience of Brian as the lead singer in the 3RD WAVE album resulted in a recording that expressed his conviction with passion and purpose. Collaborating on the project with Brian is the rising star Siwon Choi of Super Junior and the Taiwanese pop icon Van Ness Wu. The musical alignment of these voices on the project have produced a beautiful message of hope. Van Ness Wu spoke about his role in giving hope to others, "I believe in making a difference instead of a living."
The star-studded, ‘I Will Be There’ album is a charity album to help raise finances for Africans. Our three exemplary role models are rallying fans to support the album. Brian Joo explained, “When you [fans] support it, you’re getting something out of it and you’re giving something more.” In a world where the business of life consumes us, an album like this positively encourages us to stop and make time to help others, to help the world!
