Actress Takei Emi (17) will debut as a singer this December, it has been learned. Her debut single, “Koisuru Kimochi,” is described as a balled perfect for winter, written by GLAY’s TAKURO.
Because Takei has long been a fan of GLAY, she requested through her management agency to have TAKURO write a song for her. The song was recorded in early October.
“Koisuru Kimochi” will be released on December 14 through Universal Music’s Universal J label.
It appears that Takei will develop her singing career while continue with her acting. She already has a busy schedule lined up for 2012, including the NHK taiga drama series “Taira no Kiyomori,” the release of the movie “Ai to Makoto 201X,” and the release of the live-action “Rurouni Kenshin” film.
