MILCK closes the 2017 Women In The World Summit in New York City.


MILCK closes Women in the World Summit with powerful encore performance of ‘Quiet’

By WITW Staff on April 7, 2017

In a rousing finish to Tina Brown’s 8th Annual Women in the World Summit, MILCK returned to the stage at the David H. Koch Theater and enthralled the audience with an encore performance of “Quiet,” the song that became the unofficial anthem of the Women’s March. MILCK’s performance followed “The Resisters” panel, which featured some of the top organizers of the march discussing the next phase of the movement.

The song has been performed live by MILCK with various singers around the U.S. and became a true global sensation as choirs and flashmobs, wearing pink pussy hats, have performed versions of it in Toronto, Canada, and amid frigid temps and falling snowflakes in Gothenburg, Sweden, among other places. One supercut video shows several different performances of quiet being sung around the world and in different languages.

All of those powerhouse performances are worth checking out, as is the official “Quiet” music video, which is noticeably more haunting than the feel-good flashmob performances.

And if you’re in New York City this weekend, you have a chance to take part in the next flashmob performance of “Quiet.” Saturday, April 8 is #ICantKeepQuiet Day and MILCK will be appearing at the fountain in Manhattan’s Washington Square Park at 1 p.m. to lead another sing-along. Before you head over to Washington Square Park, be sure to download the official “Quiet” learning kit here, so you’re ready to sing with the crowd. Keep in mind, if you can’t be in New York City, #ICantKeepQuiet Day is happening all over at 1 p.m. local time. So be sure to get out and take part.
