Himeka

Was reading through an old issue of my Japanese learner’s magazine when i found out about this singer – Himeka. She’s French-Canadian, and she aspires to be an animation singer. Her Japanese is fluent and flawless; i can’t even tell that she is not a native!

The video is a bit annoying – there is a lag between the sound and the image so it looks like the singer is just pretending to sing. Also the song is not very nice. I am just impressed at her impeccable grasp of the language.

There’s another video here where you can hear her singing properly (and a lot more about her past) in a competition which shot her to stardom.
