Hello there, do you know any of the foreign artists who can sing in Japanese language? I only want to be official artists, not cover and independent artists.

Whatever happened to Catherine St-Onge? Last post we ever made about her[1], she was announcing that she had left Japan due to Visa issues, but was joining a new Japanese music act. The last mention I see of her anywhere is a French Canadian interview[2] with her on the CBC (Radio Canada in French) in 2015.

I just removed one of the "official websites" from her Encyclopedia profile because the domain had been hijacked by a porn site.

So Himeka isn't going to be in Japan at all, because immigration is so evil that Japan won't let them in at all.

I only saw her live at 5pb Live 2013 (23 November 2013 at Tokyo Dome City Hall), where she sang:

カギリアルユメ
TSU-BA-SA

For Animax Musix Yokohama 2014 (22nd November 2014), HIMEKA was pre-recorded for a performance of Endless Nova by AG7, with the other 6 members appearing live.

The Japanese Wikipedia page for HIMEKA has a few more details than the English language page, but nothing after mention of her deleting her Twitter account in 2016.
