In many countries, the name Halie Loren is not well known. However, in Japan, the talented Jazz/Pop singer's name is as well known and her CDs and concert tickets sell as well as Norah Jones and other popular singers in similar genres.
The events in Japan over the last few weeks have affected everyone around the world, including Loren. She has turned energies and her talent and popularity in Japan to raise money with an original song called ‘In Time (Hope for Healing)’, that in just a few days has become a major hit. When asked about the song, Loren said, "I wrote 'In Time (Hope for Healing)' about rising above hardship and sadness, rebuilding our lives, and being even better for all we come through. I dedicate it to Japan's people, in solidarity with them during their healing process, and in belief that they can once again feel safe and whole."
‘In Time (Hope for Healing)’, which is currently only available on Amazon.JP as a download, donates all money directly to Red Cross Japan and is already the most popular download on the site after only a few days. Northwest-based Loren has visited Japan three times in the last seven months, most recently playing in support of her latest CD release ‘After Dark’ to sold-out audiences at the Cotton Club and the Blue Note. She records in Japan for JVC/Victor and in the United States for White Moon Productions distributed by Burnside Distribution.
