Singer Stephanie Marcellé celebrates Asian heritage with song about determination, with her blend of R&B and world music
Featured by Offbeat Magazine, My Spilt Milk, and more, Stephanie Marcellé released “guts” on May 7th for Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
As a black woman who is mixed with different ethnicities, Stephanie Marcellé is the great-great-granddaughter of a Chinese immigrant. She grew up with close ties to the Asian community, so she pays tribute to East Asia and South Asia with “guts.” Singing in English, with hints of Chinese and Hindi, Stephanie Marcellé fills “guts” with career experiences. Like all successful artists, she has overcome plenty of no’s in pursuit of her dreams. To show how she fights those no’s, she sprinkles affirmations throughout the first half of “guts” and raps her haters away in the second. As Jillian Fontana of My Spilt Milk wrote, “It’s evident that her lyrics are coming from the rawest part of herself, and every word echoes with purpose.” “Guts” is the fifth song of HUMAN, Stephanie Marcellé’s debut album and sexual assault awareness project.
Throughout 2021, Stephanie Marcellé is releasing HUMAN one song a month until December. To check out “guts” and the rest of HUMAN’s released songs, visit stopsexualassault.org/music, Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital music platforms. Twenty percent of Stephanie Marcellé’s profit from HUMAN will go towards the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN).
