Yungchen is a critically acclaimed Tibetan singer-songwriter who has been called “The Queen of Kindness” in a Songlines cover story. She was born and raised in Lhasa, tibet, which she left in 1989 to make a pilgrimage to Dharamshala, India. From there, inspired to share her voice and music with the world, she moved to Australia in 1993 and then to New York in 2000. Her name, which translates as ‘Goddess of Melody,’ was given to her by a lama at birth. Yungchen’s remarkable voice and message of peace and loving kindness have inspired thousands of artists and audiences around the world. She has performed and recorded with Natalie Merchant, Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, and Bono, among others, and her recordings have been used in the film Seven Years in Tibet and many Tibetan documentaries. 

The First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn is a joyful, caring, religious community that inspires and empowers people to Grow spiritually, Care for one another, and Work for justice and stewardship of the earth.
