Jero - Umiyuki

Jero is a young man who has amazed me. He has achieved a feat that no one else has ever done - he is an African American Enka singer. His grandmother was Japanese and wanted him to be a famous Enka singer. Enka is a traditional or "country" way of singing for the Japanese. After a lot of work, he has pulled it off, his single Umiyuki was released on February 20th and has already sold over 3 million copies. If I had only heard his voice, I would never have known he was anything but Japanese. Congratulations! (omedeto!)
