Thank you for visiting my site!
A little but about me… I started playing the saxophone when I was in junior high school in Japan, and in 2006 I had an opportunity to go to Florida with my high school brass band club and do workshops and perform in some concerts with the local high school students. We were lucky enough to get to play at Disney World.
In 2009, I saw Michael Jackson’s documentary, “This is it.” I was impressed by his musical talent and told myself that one day I would be a successful artist just like him. With this in mind, at the end of 2011 O came to the United States and had the opportunity to meet and study jazz from some wonderful professionals such as Dee Dee McNeal, Billy Michelle, and Aimee Nolte.
After completion of my Vocal and sax course, and workshop and MPA Assistance Course, I met Stacy Lee and began to expand my musical range (maybe depth, widened my musical genres) by studying Pop and Rhythm and Blues Stacey info.
While living in Japan I had not really been exposed to Christianity. Upon arriving to the United States, I became exposed to many new things. Christianity being one. However, being in a new place all alone leaves one with a lot of thoughts. A Japanese friend, that I made upon my arrival, introduced me to a Japanese community where I had found the comfort of home. As I met people in the community and learned more about religion. I found myself questioning my decision to come to the U.C. and why was I so afraid to set out of the Japanese community. I immediately realized that I chose to come to the U.S. with two purposes in mind. The first is to learn and become confident in speaking English and the second was to become a successful artist. I also realized that if I wanted to accomplish the goals that I needed to take action. I immediately contacted a friend and started on my new journey.
As time went on, I wholeheartedly converted to being a Christian. My conversions to Christianity came with the opportunity to meet new people. Through my conversion, I was blessed to meet several people who have molded me into the artist that I am now.
I am currently a gospel singer, songwriter, and musician based in Los Angeles, California. I am proud to say that in May of 2016, I was able to release my first album, “Believer”. In 2019, I was able to release my single, “Feel His Love.”
