She (Minako Honda) passed away by leukemia several years ago.
She and I are the same age.
She is in Heaven now.
Many Japanese loved her.
Minako Honda - Amazing Grace
I can understand that many Japanese loved her.
Had she been on the world stage I am sure many millions more would have loved her.
Thank you Possible-san for bringing her to us.
Pretty lady, pretty sound.
Thank you for your comments.
Minako Honda is Japanese people's pride.
Please remember her name, if you'd like.
Since she is probably singing even now in Heaven.
Well, Hayley sings a duet with the late Minako Honda in a virtual space.
Thank you P.S.
Thats a beautifull song song by a beautiful lady
Very sad that she`s passed away at such a young age in the prime of her carreer ?
My youngest son is married to a japanese lady,I must pass this info on to them
pretty girl, lovely voice
Hayley Westenra gets better all the time, doesn't she?
Thanks for sharing
thank you beautful
Probably, in Heaven, she is thankful to you all.
Before her death, she sang to nurses.
She said, "I love the sun (Japanese "Taiyo"). I wanna become a person like the sun who gives people the light through songs."
Probably, she would sing for you.
I really hate that song because it is so sad and it seems the only time you hear it is when something terrible happens.
I reminds me of how much I hate death and destruction and i know some people feel spiritual when they hear it but I feel the opposite way it makes me angry with whoever is responsible for this mess.
She was a beautiful woman with a special voice and I respect her feelings about that song.
I also think it is a sad song. But it is often a beautiful reflection of the human spirit at the same time.
Thank you for sharing the song and the beautiful person singing it with us, possible.
