EOY has announced their first artiste to join EOY2012’s J-pop Live lineup!
Sayuri Sugawara, a young singer from Akita, recently gained international attention with her performance of Final Fantasy XIII’s theme song 『Kimi ga Iru Kara』(Because You Are Here) and subsequently enjoyed success touring stages throughout Japan.
Having debuted in December 2008 after winning a contract with For Life Music, she has released six singles, two mini-albums and one full compilation, one of which has peaked at #14 on the Oricon Daily charts.
December 11 will mark the songstress’ first international live appearance at Singapore’s very own Esplanade Concert Hall. Music lovers will not only be treated to the smash hit from FFXIII, but re-arrangements and originals from the beloved JRPG franchise whose soundtracks have achieved critical acclaim over the years. Sayuri, whose second full-length album is due to be released soon, will also perform her own soulful originals, both familiar and new.
Tickets go on sale October 1 via SISTIC, so don’t miss the rare opportunity to catch Sayuri live on stage! Fans will also be given the chance to meet the singer in person for autographs after the concert!
