Sorry for not uploading but I've been a bit busy ;_;!~
Today I'm going to talk about Ai Kago, one of my favourite singers and also an
inspiration in me~ ♥
Ai Kago (加護亜依) 〜
Ai Kago or Aibon was a member of the 4th generation of the famous japanese group
"Morning Musume". She was chosen in 2000, when she was only 12 years old, with Tsuji Nozomi,
Rika Ishikawa and Hitomi Yoshizawa. In a small time she highlighted in the
group: Nono (Tsuji-chan) and her became a funny small mates that always made a lot of noise
and they were eating all the time.
She was part of many important units in Hello Project like Minimoni, Tanpopo or W.
She was a Momusu member and a Minimoni and Tanpopo member at the same time.
In 2004, after Nacchi left the group, she graduated with Nono to create W, that means
When they were going to release their third studio album, Aibon was caught smoking (In Japan
you can't smoking until you're 21) and they were also photos of her with an older man.
So she was sacked from Hello Project inmediately and they didn't released the third CD.
That time was a really bad time in Aibon's life, she was having familiar problems and she was
She had to be at home and she couldn't have contact with the other H!P members.
In 2009 she came back to the public life, she composed two songs that were included in her
first solo single "no hesitAtIon". That it's a lovely and emotional single.
She appeared in some tv shows and in movies. There were a lot of scandals about her
photobooks which are a bit provocative, but not all of them.
Later she worked in L.A. with a new kind of music: Jazz. She studied a lot and her first solo
studio album was released with covers of famous songs of Jazz. This cd is called
"AI KAGO MEETS JAZZ~ The first Door ~ "
Now she's working a lot to improve her voice and she appears in some tv programmes.
My CD collection / Discography~
I really love this album, some lovely lyrics. No hesitAtIon is the first song and it's
an energetic and fresh song *3* It makes me be more positive.
And the second track it's Children Of the Night, which makes me cry sometimes,
it's a beautiful song with the sweet voice of Aibon. It's one of my favourite songs ^^
Also the single includes instrumental versions.
Ai Kago meets JAZZ ~ The first door ~
This cd means a change between the young Kago-chan and the mature
Ai Kago. Her voice it's really better but without losing her sweetness.
It's really nice to hear her singing famous songs as "Over the Rainbow",
"When you wish Upon a Star", "All of me" and other fantastic songs.
It's a complete jazz album but it has the special esence of Aibon.
Please support her buying her cd's ~! ♥
