LiSA in Singapore 2015 Part 1: The Beginning


Japanese pop-rock singer LiSA singing "Home", one of Singapore's National Day songs

Declaring that Singapore was her second home, LiSA performed one of the city-state's most beloved National Day songs to the amazement of the audience. It came as little surprise that she regarded the little island as her home though. Singapore was after all, a launchpad of sorts for her burgeoning career, when she was just a newcomer to the anisong scene but invited to perform here at Anime Festival Asia (AFA) 2011 four years ago. She has performed at the convention annually ever since.

Having attended the I Love Anisong concert at AFA last year, I must attest that she is one of the best performers on stage. She is bursting with energy and never fails to get the audience on their feet, cheering along vivaciously. She is also incredibly good at interacting with the crowd.
