Project 2017-12-27 02:19:23 +1300

Let us raise NZ$2,000 to welcome the world famous Japanese singer AZUMI INOUE and her daughter YUYU the aspiring singer all the way from Japan!

 

Azumi Inoue is a globally well-known singer who sings number of theme songs in Studio Ghibli anime such as: 'Carrying You' in Laputa Castle in the Sky, 'Stroll' 'My Neighbor Totoro' 'A Lost Child' 'Mother' in My Neighbor Totoro, 'The Changing Seasons' and 'The Magic Warmth' in Kiki's Delivery Service.

Her daughter, Yuyu, a 13-year-old girl is also becoming a promising singer in Japan who has been singing a couple songs at a Japanese kids TV show for three years in a row. 

We Japan Day Committee are hoping to welcome these fabulous singers to JAPAN DAY 2018 all the way from Japan! All these works are to make you smile... :D

 

 ---Details of the rewards---

- Mini private concert ticket(s): ticket(s) for a mini private concert of Azumi Inoue and Yuyu on the 1st floor of The Cloud (at sometime between 12.30pm - 2.30pm) on Sunday 25th February. 

- Polaroid photo(s): Take a photo(s) with Azumi and Yuyu and get them printed on the spot so they will last forever as the world's only one photo! It'll be taken during the mini private concert OR

- Autograph(s): Grab something you want them to write down their autographs so they will write down for you during the mini private concert on Sunday 25th February.

---Profile of Azumi Inoue---

She made her debut as a singer in 1983. 3 years later, she was selected as the theme song singer in one of the Hayao Miyazaki  films, "Laputa: Castle in the sky" - which gave her the first national recognition. Over the following years, she sang numbers of anime theme songs including "My Neighbour Totoro (Tonari no Totoro)", "Stroll (Sanpo)", "A Lost Child (Maigo)" etc. 

---Profile of Yuyu---

Yuyu, a daughter of Azumi Inoue made her debut as a singer in 2012. Since she overcame childhood cancer that she developed when she was three, she's been having concerts for those children suffering from cancer. Her dream is to give those children all over the world courage and power to thrive and make everyone including their families smile via her singing, jusr like her mother. 

She has performed in many countries with her mother such as China, Taiwan, Russia, France, and America and her annual family concerts with her mother all around Japan became popular and now they have become everyone's favourite of all ages as family fun concerts.

    Hi this is Japan Day Crowdfunding Team! Unfortunately, the first project of inviting Azumi Inoue and Yuyu has failed through... BUT a failure isn't just a failure, it is a step to succeed... We Japan Day Committee have considered a lot and reopened the new PledgeMe project to receive donations in order to invite Azumi Inoue and Yuyu!!
