The Coalition Of Asian Pacifics In Entertainment (CAPE) — which is the largest and oldest Asian American entertainment organization in the world — is set to celebrate its 25th anniversary with the help of several high-profile digital stars. This is an especially pertinent community, according to the organization, given that 15% of the most-subscribed channels on YouTube are helmed by Asian creators.
The 25th Anniversary Gala, which will take place on Oct. 22 at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, serves to celebrate and support CAPE — which champions diversity in the entertainment industry by educating, connecting, and empowering Asian American and Pacific Islander artists.
Digital luminaries slated to attend this year include vlogger and actress Anna Akana; The Lizzie Bennet Diaries executive producer Bernie Su; Cassey Ho (aka Blogilates); YouTube musicians David Choi and Megan Lee; dance creator Dominic ‘D-Trix’ Sandoval; Eugene Yang, who is one of BuzzFeed’s Try Guys; and Freddie Wong of RocketJump. Harry Shum Jr., the star of YouTube Red’s Single By 30, will also be in attendance, as will Twitch founders Kevin Lin and Justin Kan, and Phil Wang and Wes Chan of Wong Fu Productions.
“In a time when diversity and inclusion are finally more than buzzwords, and as the entertainment industry scrambles for more inclusive leaders and stories, CAPE looks forward to cultivating the rich talent pool within our community and to becoming an effective resource of AAPI talent for the industry,” said CAPE’s executive director Michelle Sugihara in a statement.

Survival starts in the core, and today Microsoft Studios unveiled a new look into ReCore’s adventure-filled world, Far Eden, and its heroine, Joule Adams. Narrated by Joule’s father, Dr. Thomas Adams, the video takes a deeper look at Joule’s journey, revealing new gameplay and characters from ReCore’s cinematic story as well as the qualities Joule inherited from her father; qualities that will help her and her Corebot companions to bring new life and hope to Far Eden.
In addition to these new insights into ReCore’s gameplay and story, we’re also excited to reveal some of the actors helping bring ReCore to life: Joule (Erika Soto, Halo Wars 2), Dr. Adams (Connor Trinneer, Stargate: Atlantis and Star Trek: Enterprise), and the mysterious Kai Brehn, who makes his first appearance in today’s trailer (Harry Shum Jr., Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments and Glee).
