I wish I knew what she was singing, but it sounds heartfelt.

It's a song for the victims, saying the whole world is with you. A rough translation (there are a couple parts I'm not sure about but this should do for now):

The world is worrying, worrying about you
Searching for your name
With you, the world is with you
Coming to meet you
Heart and body unbroken, hugging you
Until we get to you, be you, be safe

what a kawai voice Very Happy

here's the translation of the song:

きみでいて ぶじでいて
Be you, Be safe

心配してる 世界が君を心配してる
(shinpai shiteru sekai ga kimi wo shinpai shiteru)
Worried, the world is worried about you

君の名前を探してる
(kimi no namae wo sagashiteru)
Searching for your name

一緒にいるよ、世界が君と一緒にいるよ
(issho ni iru yo, sekai ga kimi to issho ni iru yo)
With you, the whole world is with you

君の命に会いに行く
(kimi no inochi ni ai ni yuku)
Going to meet your life

心と体壊さず君を
(kokoro to karada kowasazu kimi wo)
Your heart and your body unbroken

抱きしめて会いに行くまで
(dakishimete ai ni yuku made)
Until we hold you and see you

きみでいて ぶじでいて
(kimi de ite, buji de ite)
Be you, be safe

Ah, the song brought tears to my eyes. Japan is most sincerely in my thoughts and prayers. Hold strong everyone.

I can't believe there were 12 idiots who didn't like that song. What are they like? Rolling Eyes

I saw this on Kenji Kamiyama's twitter feed last night - it made me cry without even being able to understand the lyrics.

That would be "Grand FuNk InC." Sometimes when you use different letters, you get different words.

From their web site:

"GRAND FUNK INC is a music production company that specializes in TV, Radio jingles, Movie Sound Tracks, Artist management and Label."

[I'm not certain what it means to specialize in label, but that's what it says.]

That was very lovely, I'd like to hear more Composers write Suites and Songs for Japan, Yuki Kajiura, the works.

On that note, I have not heard the wearabouts of Masumi Itou (aka Hikaru Nanase) Hope she and the many others are safe. Crying or Very sad

Finally managed to hear it. How cute! And....sad.

The voice reminds me of voice samples I think she made for the telephone?
