Influences: Sarah Brightman, Celine Dion, David Foster
A much-sought-after classically trained singer, Sunny’s music has touched audiences across the world, whether it is in Japan, the United States, the Philippines, or the United Arab Emirates.
A soprano whose musical range includes pop music and musical theater, she first came to international attention in 2011, when her impromptu rendition of Schubert’s “Ave Maria,” which she sang at Union Square subway in New York, went viral on YouTube.
Subsequently, Sunny has performed at full-house events in front of thousands in Japan and around the world, including at a UNESCO World Heritage Site commemoration event in Tokyo.
In 2014, Sunny released her first studio album, “Flower”, a pop music hit. She was chosen among thousands of artists to produce music by industry heavyweight Geo Corporation, a retailer of CDs and DVDs. Two years later, her magical voice was the signature accompaniment to Dunlop Tyre’s TV, radio, and web commercial.
Her second studio album, “Earth”, was released in 2016. Earth was inspired by her experiences in Fiji as a participant in the Global Leaders Development Program (Ship for World Youth Leaders), an initiative of the Cabinet office of the Government of Japan.
“I was impressed by the amazing beauty of the resort areas in Fiji, but I also visited other parts of the country, including towns with environmental challenges. The album was my way of sharing what I saw and learnt during the trip.” Sunny.
In addition to singing and performing on stage, Sunny contributes to the community by volunteering and teaching music. She has delivered fun workshops on music for children and adults in Japan, the Philippines, and Sweden.
