Fly Me To The Moon

Today i will tell you one of my favorite singers. Her name is Utada Hikaru also known as Hikki and was born 19th January 1983 in New York to her Japanese parents. Bot of them were in the music industry. Her father was a producer and her mother a singer.

And interesting thing about her name is, that Hikaru means “to shine”. Also he had a artist name as Cubic U when she made her first album at the age of 12 in 1996.

Hikaru Utada, is a third culture singer-songwriter, arranger and record producer in Japan and the US. She is well-known internationally for her two theme song contributions to Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts video game series.

Utada's first official Japanese album First Love became the best-selling album of all time in Japan with over 7.65 million copies sold to date in Japan alone (10.056 million worldwide to date), cementing her status in the music industry in Japan.

In 2007, her single "Flavor of Life" reached #2 in worldwide digital download single sales with over 7.2 million download (the only non-American artist to hold such a distinction), and she sold a total of 12 million digital ringtones and songs in that same year, making her the first artist ever to have this many digital sales in a year's time.

she’s allready married. :) She’s married to Kazuaki Kiriya a film director and photographer.

This is one of my favorite songs....

Utada Hikaru - Fly Me To The Moon

Poets often use many words

To say a simple thing

But it takes thought and time and rhyme

To make a poem sing

With music and words I'll be playin'

For you, I have written a song

To be sure that you know what I'm sayin'

I'll translate as I go along

Fly me to the moon

And let me play among the stars

Won't you let me see what spring

Is like on Jupiter and Mars

In other words, hold my hand

In other words, darling, kiss me

Fill my heart with song

And let me sing forever more

'Cause you are all I long for

All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true

In other words, I love you

In other words, please be true

(Please be true, I just want you to be true)

In other words, yeah yeah yeah yeah,

I love you

(I love you, I love you)

Oh oh

C'mon, just take me to the moon and back

Da da da da da da

Da da da da da yeah
