Chihiro Yonekura

Chihiro is a singer and songwriter from Yokohama, Japan.

Chihiro made her debut with the song “Arashi no Naka de Kagayaite”, the opening theme for Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team OAV in 1996. The song sold more than 100,000 copies, unprecedented for an OAV theme, and she went on to record more works for the series.

She’s since sung many hit anisongs including “WILL” and “FRIENDS”, the opening and ending themes of Soul Hunter; Fairy Tail’s “~Yakusoku no Hi~”; “Butterfly Kiss”, the theme song for Rave Master; “Yakusoku no Basho e”, the theme for Kaleido Star; and the theme song for You’re Being Summoned, Azazel, among others.

After Chihiro signed with SOLID VOX in 2010, she became very active touring, including performing across Asia and South America. She continues her work not only as an artist but also by writing songs to other artists as well.

Chihiro Yonekura will appear at Anime NYC as part of the Anime Diva Night powered by Anisong World Matsuri! The event is free – with a Premium Package including exclusive signed print and Japanese-style High Touch session available now!
