MILCK is an American singer and songwriter who had performed as an independent artist for several years before breaking through in 2017 when a video of her performing her song Quiet had gone viral at the Women’s March, a worldwide protest that took place on January 21, 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. It was the then-largest single-day protest in American history and MILCK’s song had eventually become an unofficial anthem for the movement. She was later signed up by Atlantic Recording Corporation and her debut EP titled This Is Not The End was released in 2018.

- A child prodigy, MILCK had written and composed her first song titled Healthy People when she was 7 years old. She also used to take classes in operatic music and classical piano during this time. A bright student, she was also a homecoming queen at school.
- In her childhood and teenage years, she had struggled with anorexia, an eating disorder characterized by low weight, fear of gaining weight, and an overpowering desire to be thin.
- While she was attending the University of California, Berkeley, she had joined an a cappella (musical performance without instrumental accompaniment) group called Golden Overtones and had also started a band. Thereafter, she had dropped out and had performed as an independent artist for about 8 years.
- She was eventually signed up by a record label and had been featured on the first season of the reality TV singing competition show The Voice.
- Her stage name, MILCK, was made up by using her last name (Lim) backward and adding her first two initials (C and K) to that.
- Her breakthrough song, Quiet, which went viral at the 2017 Women’s March, had been written in 2015, as a way of coping with s*xual assault and abuse as a teenager. She had performed that song, with 26 other singers, 7 times throughout the march.
- The performance was recorded by filmmaker Alma Ha’rel who had uploaded the video to social media where it had hit more than 8 million views in just 2 days. The song went on to be named the number one protest song of 2017 by Billboard, an American weekly music and entertainment magazine. In 2018, she had returned to the Women’s March to perform the same song.
- Her cover of the 1970 single O-o-h Child was used in an advertisement campaign by Procter & Gamble at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
