J-Pop, old school – Hitomi Ishikawa
Surfing through some Japanese videos on Youtube, I found some videos by a J-pop singer from back in the 80’s who’s still performing (and still looks very nice, even if she doesn’t look like a high-school girl anymore) named Hitomi Ishikawa (çŸ³å·ã²ã¨ã¿)
. She started out (looks like) when she was in high school in 1976, winning a Fuji TV singing contest. She had one big hit in 1978, she was a voice actress on an anime, but her career came to a halt when she contracted Hepatitis B in 1987. She recovered and started performing again in 1988, got married in 1993 (dang it!) and still performs on TV. She has a fantastic voice, even when she was just starting out.
Anyway, here’s a compilation video of some of her songs, and video clips of her performing them through the years.
From the Youtube page, here’s the playlist of songs:
