Former Morning Musume Ai Kago in New Jersey on Sunday
posted on by Egan Loo
Ai Kago, a former singer in Hello! Project's Morning Musume girl group, is appearing at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in Fort Lee, New Jersey on Sunday from 12:30 a.m. to about 3:00 p.m.
Kago voiced her animated Aibon counterpart in the Mini Moni Yaru no da Pyon! and Mini Moni the TV series of shorts in 2001 and 2003. Alongside other Morning Musume members, she also voiced a hamster character named Aiin-chan in several Hamtaro projects. She "graduated" from Morning Musume in 2004 and was forced out of Hello! Project in 2007, but she has since worked on several solo projects. She performed a song with Public Enemy producer/guitarist Brian Hardgroove on last month's Kirakira Majocco Cluv, an album of electronic-music-influenced covers of magical girl anime theme songs.
