I Have Finished The Race

    This album is a tribute to my family.

   The process of writing this album gave me a chance to look back and try to put myself in the shoes of my beloved ones. Foremost, it was a meaningful experience to animate my creativity through the core value my family and I share. Faith that is.

    Speaking of faith, I'd like to take this opportunity to honor my father's lifelong ministry and retirement. Dad, I am the witness to your ceaseless devotion that is in debt to perpetual enduring during the day and endless prayer at night. The reward Paul got from his lifelong commitment was nothing but solitude and weariness. However, Paul didn't give up on his faith, the assurance that the crown of righteousness lay upon him. As how Paul believed, I pray this album can remind us all that our crowns of righteousness lay upon us.

    Growing up, through music I was allowed to retreat from reality for a moment and appreciate a piece of solace. I hope this album do the same, to spark a glimpse of consolation in listening to it.

     Lastly, I want to express my gratitude to my family and friends for their unconditional love and support. This album is my heart for you.

Forever yours,

Patrick Jong Min Kim
