“What kind of song would you like to sing if Hibari Misora ​​sang by A.I.” It was a project that began with questions from NHK Special staff. If you write a new song for Misora ​​Hibari now, what would you write on the theme?
I was excited and thought.
30 years since Hibari Misora ​​passed away.
At that time, I was a 30-year-old young man, and I had a 60th birthday. There is a 30-year “from then on”.
The solicited thought was put into the song “From there”.
I am glad to hear that many people have received a great response from the song “From there”.
The idea of ​​everyone who wants to meet again is planned as a dream only for one night.
“From now on” may be “from now on” Hibari Misora ​​gave us.
