YUI Ties with ERIKA For #8 In Wonderful Voices

Saturday, November 24, 2007

In a recent survey, researchers from Oricon asked 2,000 people, "Which celebrity has a wonderful voice?"

Among male celebrities, popular actor and singer Masaharu Fukuyama ranked first. Akira Kawashima of comedy duo Kirin came in second, followed by Shosuke Tanihara, Hiroshi Tamaki, and Hiroshi Abe. Akira Nakao and Leo Morimoto tied for 6th, ahead of Takuya Kimura, Gackt, and Koichi Yamadera.

On the women's side, actress/singer/seiyu Keiko Toda topped the list. She was chosen partly for her range of voices in anime, which includes Matilda from "Mobile Suit Gundam" and Anpanman. Nanako Matsushima, Yukie Nakama, Sayuri Yoshinaga, and Masami Nagasawa filled the rest of the top five (in that respective order). Hitomi Kuroki tied with Miwa Yoshida for #6. YUI tied with Erika Sawajiri for #8 (how ironic), while Ai Otsuka and Hikaru Utada tied for #10.


Congratualations to YUI for once again placing in the Top Ten! She definitely has a wonderful voice. Keep up the good work!
