E1 Music will be donating their YouTube royalty share to Red Cross for Andy Kim's Love Is video tribute http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r-VwjkJIZk As the writer/singer of "Sugar, Sugar," "Baby, I Love You" and "How'd We Ever Get This Way". In 2009, Kim's music has again come into the public eye, as his single "Rock Me Gently" was sped up slightly and used by Jeep for their Jeep Liberty commercial ("Pouring In").
In 2010, Kim will release Happen Again, his first album in over 20 years, with the first single, Happen Again going to radio in January through E1 Music.
