A phenomenal Japanese singer. Popular in her homeland, she is gaining popularity elsewhere in the world not only for her clear, bright voice, but also because she is a polyglot - she can speak English, Portuguese and French as well as Japanese. The easiest way for us gaijins to sample her works is on the albums Final Fantasy Pray and Final Fanatasy Love Will Grow, where she sings her own lyrics over the works of composer Nobuo Uematsu.
