Beautiful Angela Aki Song – Tegami

It’s been a while since a song brought tears to my eyes.

I was watching NHK and there was this Latina looking lady singing a rather beautiful Japanese song. I wasn’t even paying much attention to the lyrics and I didn’t even know who she was but the melody of the song was just beautiful.

Now I know the singer is Angela Aki and the song Tegami (手紙〜拝啓十五の君へ〜) is about a 15 year-old writing a letter to himself/herself. Sad, uplifting and beautiful.
