Sahanghee "Song" Hahn is an R&B/Gospel Korean-American singer, songwriter, actress, and model. Recently she was selected out of 500 contestants to represent the Philadelphia area by singing the National Anthem at a 2006 NFL Eagles game. In the fashion print world, she has been featured in TeenPeople and Vogue magazine as well as in several fine art exhibitions. She also recently starred as Julie in the independent feature film, Rice Cracker.
Her solo music album, Broke Heart Solutions, is scheduled for release on August 5, 2006. She is currently looking for the right music record label to launch her unique voice: sensitive, silky, yet surprisingly soulful, from the lungs of an Asian female.
Sahanghee has been interviewed on WTMR 1080 AM’s Message in the Music and FM Radio Station Power 99’s Sunday Morning Inspirations; her singles, “Be Alright” and “Remember” have played on their airwaves. She has collaborated with some of Philly’s finest gospel, R&B, and hip-hop talent, including Jenae Paden, Christopher Aikens, Joshua Arrington, Eskoh, DBak, and Christlike da General. She currently works with Scott Herzog and Sean “Skipp” Waller, her music producers.
Sahanghee is used to surprising others with her voice and talents. Her single, “This Your World,” talks about her struggle for recognition: “But what will they think of me/A Korean singin’ R&B/ What if they don’t feel me/ Don’t feel like I belong.” Later in it, she sings, “Well I might not be a sister/ But I got faith like a believer/ What I’m tellin’ you is the truth/ I’m a keep singin’ like I been singin’/ With or without you.”
Sahanghee’s loved R&B music since she was a child. She remembers singing Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” on karaoke machines in South Korea. “When I first heard Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, something just clicked. I thought to myself, ‘that’s the way singing’s supposed to be.’ And I’ve been working at it ever since. I’ve prayed for years for God to bless me and to enable me to bless others. He has answered, and continues to answer, but that isn’t to say it’s been easy.”
In a genre dominated by African-American performers, it’s just as much about your look and background as it is about how you sound.
Still nowadays, she believes that God is opening doors for her in the entertainment world, on top of one miracle that has already occurred: her parents’ warming up to her singing career.
“My mother and father love me and want the best for me. So when they heard their daughter say to them that she instead of becoming a doctor or businesswoman she wanted to be America’s next R&B music sensation, they reacted like any other parent. They told me I had lost my mind and that I should get back to studying.”
“But little by little, God changed their hearts. Now, they really do support me and my dream. They tell me that they are proud of me and even encourage me when I find myself struggling. That means worlds to me.”
“I hope I can go all the way, but only time will tell. But still, the present is an exciting time to live. I can’t wait to see what’ll happen next!”
