"About 10 years ago, I was invited to holding a concert in Taiwan…But then I ain’t had enough confidence to do.
Today, although I’m very nervous, and my hand has been shaking, but I will try very hard to sing to the end."


This Night Mika holding concerts in Taiwan that Taiwanese fans waited for 15 years, but for this moment she has been preparing a full decade. On December 24th and 25th 2016 this Christmas break, Mika held the first overseas concert in Taipei International Convention Center (Taiwan). This Special Live from the song, the stage or even the performance content is all a unique special field. A strong sense of responsibility for work she has, she quietly arrived in Taiwan on the 22nd to prepare for the concert. Until the 24nd evening 3 hours before the show time…. One by one full complete rehearsal for made the every single part would be perfect on the show.

White and Black long dress she wears, sitting on a merry-go-round, Singing 《ORION》accompanied by the starlight projection elegant appeared, for the Christmas break after She finished 流れ星, the dancer passed a penlight( concert goods) to her as a Christmas star lighting the Christmas tree in front of the stage.Then a series of suite 《愛してる》,《STARS》,《WILL》 continued in the prologue. And it is worth to be mentioned, pander to the Taiwanese audience while she singing 《愛してる》, She changes the lyrics “愛してる” into Chinese, a surprise setup full of sincerity made fans squealed.
「Dà Jiā Hǎo Wǒ Shì Zhōng Dǎo Měi Jiā」(“Hello everyone, I am Nakashima Mika”) She’s shy to said this sentence in Chinese but surprised the fans. And it’s very cute she also timid delivering an OK gesture to the audience to confirm the pronunciation is correct or not? made fans smiled at each other knowingly.

Because of the ear disease she has suspended her career in 2010, and it has not yet completely healed now, do not know whether reasons it’s her first overseas concert, she acted slightly nervous. For the consecutive days she has revealed “She was invited to holding a concert in Taiwan 10 years ago…But during that time she ain’t has enough confident to do.” Today she comes, although her hands can’t stop shaking, but fans full with enthusiasm pushing her get rid of nervous, In contrast to her self-conscious, the second day she gets more confidence and coltish.

"About 10 years ago, I was invited to holding a concert in Taiwan…But then I ain’t had enough confident to do.
I’m sorry…. I didn’t showed up until I’m aging to be an aunt …"

She Self-deprecating said on the second day. The ear disease perhaps the main reason made She refuse the invitation to hold concert in Taiwan ten years ago. As we all know in 2010 she had been aborted her career, but this disease did not happen suddenly, before she announced this message, she has been plagued by disease for five years. Calculating the time…that’s just about 10 years ago the disease begins bothering her, and let her lose her confidence then to refused her first oversea concert in Taiwan.

"For me, That’s really made me anxious and I hate myself that I am no longer good at singing because of the ear disease caused, so I din’t tell anyone. When the disease attacked, I can’t hear my voice clearly, the only thing I can do is put the all strength to sing, but usually it was unsatisfactory…"
-form she has mentioned in interview recent these years.


At some time in the past she has been New York for escape the reality that ear disease stroke her singing career, But also because this “no longer cure” ear disease she wanted to stop her career indefinitely. Fortunately, she has recovered self-confidence overcome the challenges then back to the stage. She use the way without any words but her body moves through the music to tell every one this story that what comes to her and what’s the turning point to push her to identify her position.

《僕が死のうと思ったのは》

Before she sings 《僕が死のうと思ったのは》 the piano substrate in background, a gloomy melody flows and she moves staggered like hopeless on the stage drifting on the melody waves, sometimes you can see she strengthless whirled and the music transfer to a panic melody, meanwhile it looks like she wanna escape this whirlpool opened her arms struggling. However, no matter how hard she try to escape this plight, she just can’t, it seems she’s been swallowed by the desperate and fallen down on the stage center until the 《僕が死のうと思ったのは》 melody flows, she can finally stand up.

You might see the many interviews asking her that which song is her favorite? The answer is no longer been 《Love Addict》, but this one 《僕が死のうと思ったのは》, for her it’s the most important song now. If you can tell what course of her mind, you will understand she ain’t move her body by randomly. And 《僕が死のうと思ったのは》 this song just is the key to push her up to standing. In the end of the lyrics of 《僕が死のうと思ったのは》 wrote 「あなたのような人が生まれた……」. I guess…. For her that “You” might means the fans whom never betray and bring her courage to be continued her career. Honestly to said, this plot is so touching, then I dunno how many people can tell or can see into her mind, but during she sang 「あなたのような人が生まれた……」 she had always poke her finger at the audience to means her greatest thanks.

"Today, although I’m very nervous, and my hand has been shaking, but I will try very hard to sing to the end."

I remember a long time ago I’d wrote this sentence on my blog ”Fantastic, although Mika can’t sing stabilizing, but she has a distinguished voice so appealing and very grab people’s attention.“ And now she’s still by the ear disease attacking, but fans have accepted Mika Nakashima such like this way, and her best return is to do her best on singing. However, I don’t still approve of she sounds out of control or use the wrong way she treat her throat, and she tried too hard to hurt her voice. But It’s not a blame but more cared and worried, since I’d been impacted by the plot of 《僕が死のうと思ったのは》, from that on I can’t stop worrying and praying her voice would be more stable, because finally I understand and I can feel that she’s trying really hard to sing well.

As we all knew she always hand in hand with members to take a bow, but this time she speaking “Thank you” in Chinese “Xie Xie”. Curtain’s finally closing… She kneels down on all fours take a deep bow to all audience and can’t stop crying. Behind the audience can’t stop standing ovation, we all know this time her first overseas concert that she might full of happiness and deep impression.

...........................................................................Many many thanks, Chloe-san :P ..........
