Far East Movement and Macy celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month

 In honor of contributions made by Asian-Pacific Americans, Macy's celebrates Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month this May at select Macy's locations nationwide. Macy's will host the platinum-selling Far East Movement (FM) for a series of performances and appearances in six markets across the country geared towards highlighting and celebrating the unique influence of Asian-Pacific Americans on American culture and pop music.

"Asian-Pacific Americans have had an extraordinary impact on our nation, music and culture. We are proud to partner with Far East Movement to celebrate these achievements with our Asian-Pacific American Heritage month events nationwide," said Dineen Garcia, Macy's Vice President of Diversity Strategies.

Each city will host a live Q&A session with FM followed by a live performance in the store. As part of Macy's collaboration with FM, International Secret Agents (ISA) musical artists unique to each local market will also be performing with FM. ISA aims to empower and unite the Asian-American community, especially relating to the arts. Following the performances, guests are welcomed to shop the latest trends. The first 250 customers to make a purchase of $50 or more from the Junior's or Young Men's departments will receive the opportunity to get their picture taken with Far East Movement as well as a special gift with purchase.* while supplies last and as time permits.
