Angela Aki - Kiss Me Goodbye (live)

Ms Aki is one of my favorite Japanese pop singers. Unlike the majority of female pop stars here, she isn't image driven, but instead is a true musician, writing and performing her own songs.

This song got famous since it was featured in a very popular video game. You can download it from iTunes in both this Japanese version as well as an English language version.

From wikipedia:
Angela Aki speaks English and Japanese as she was raised in Japan, but moved to Hawaii at the age of fifteen where she graduated from 'Iolani School. From there she moved on to George Washington University where she graduated with majors in politics and music.

Good stuff!
