Ani-Music - Megumi Nakajima
She's cute, she's bubbly, she's talented, and she's half-foreign, it's Megumi Nakajima! With a Japanese father and a Filipina mother, Nakajima grew up in a family heavily influenced by music, playing an integral part of her life.
Successfully earning a place with her agency, Stardust Promotion, in 2003, Nakajima's fame skyrocketed when she auditioned for a particular anime in 2007 known as Macross Frontier. Earning the part of young songstress Ranka Lee, Nakajima made an explosive debut as both singer and voice actress!
Strings of hits from Macross Frontier as Ranka Lee like 'Seikan Hikou', 'Lion' (with fellow Macross Frontier star, May'n), 'What 'bout my Star', and many covers of classic songs from the franchise have earned her a permanent place in the hearts of thousands of fans.
That's not to say she hasn't had a chance to establish an identity of her own however! Nakajima released 2 successful albums, 'I Love You' in 2010 and 'Be With You' in 2012, which have additionally produced more hits for the young artiste, such as 'Sunshine Girl' and more ani-songs hits such as 'Try Unite!' and 'Hello!' - the opening and closing theme songs to Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne!
Infectious songs, amazing talent, a charming personality, and even the creation of Gumi, a Vocaloid that utilises her own voice, there's no stopping the rise of this star!
