On October 9, 2017, YOSHIKI donated $100,000.00 to help get immediate aid to hurricane victims in the United States and its territories. YOSHIKI delivered the check in New York to MusiCares®, a charity of the Recording Academy™ via Jennifer Leff, LCSW Senior Director, Health & Human Services. The donation will be funded immediately to MusiCares’s current hurricane relief efforts through Yoshiki Foundation America 501(c)(3). 100% of all donations to Musicares go directly to people in need.

“I’m from Japan but I live in America,” YOSHIKI said. “When Japan got hit by the Tsunami Earthquake in 2011, the people of America supported Japan. I was really moved by that, so I’d like to keep supporting America as much as I can. My heart goes out to all those who are affected.”

The donation ceremony followed a Q&A with YOSHIKI and a special screening of WE ARE X, the award-winning documentary about X JAPAN — one of the most successful rock bands in Japanese history — at the Bryant Park Hotel in New York City.

WE ARE X has been released in a limited edition DVD and Vinyl soundtrack bundle now available worldwide through PledgeMusic: https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/wearex

YOSHIKI is currently touring 10 countries in Europe for WE ARE X theatrical premieres.

Artist:   Manami Konishi  
Source:  press release
One of the Top Actresses in Japan, Manami Konishi has started a musical metamorphosis with her own lyrics and original melody. Although Manami is most recognized for her acting and became a household name, she is going to unleash her musical talent by collaboration with Japan’s #1 Rap Star - KREVA.

From March to April 2016, Manami had performed for KREVA’s Hip Hop Musical, Saikou Wa Hitotsu Jyanai (Your Best is More Than One) 2016 SAKURA and she covered one of KREVA’s master pieces, “Tranquilizer”. She later recorded the song and released it on iTunes as a debut single, where it charted No.1 as a Hip Hop/Rap song.

Following up this surprising chart success, Manami recorded 4 track EP titled “I miss you” with KREVA and will release it worldwide on October 7th (presale for iTunes/Apple Music only on Sept 23rd). It opens with a slow jam and the title track, “I miss you” followed by KREVA’s bouncy EDM signature beat with Manami’s visceral rap flow, “This is love”, a light hearted pop tune, “Tsumetaku Shinaide” (No Cold Shoulder, Please..) and closes with an airy intimate love song, “NO”.

With the rap legend KREVA on her side, Manami will be a force to be reckoned with and bring a fresh breeze to her fans all over the world.

“I made these songs with straight forward feeling” says Manami and it shows her unique character that is so pure and innocent, but sometimes mysterious.
