Currently 18 years old, May’n performs the singing voice of Sheryl Nome a pop idol character in the highly successful hit Japanese animation series “Macross Frontier”. In May 2008, her CD single release launch event was so successful that it became the most well attended CD launch event in the history of the Japanese music scene. She has also achieved 2 consecutive single releases that topped the Japanese Oricon charts at number 3 – which is by itself a feat for an anime J-pop performer.
May’n has been singing since the tender age of 3, and when she was 13 she topped the “Horipuro – Talent Scout Caravan – Love Music – Audition” beating a total of 35,000 contestants to win the competition. She has since made way to become a professional singer thanks to her exceptional singing prowess.
