A Burnaby musician has had enough with cases of anti-Asian hate seen across Metro Vancouver with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Shon Wong, a musician and personal trainer in the North Burnaby area, wrote the song I Found it All Inside and recorded it with the band Son of James to “bring awareness to the issue.”

There have been numerous reports of a rise in anti-Asian graffiti in the wake of the pandemic, as well as people being yelled at on transit and being assaulted.

The group has even released a video that can be seen below.
“As a band that blends Chinese instrumentation with the soulful sounds of rock, we just couldn’t keep quiet no more,” Wong said. “From within our own homes, Son of James banded together to make this song for you. And with the help of the North Burnaby and Vancouver community, we made this video for you.”
