Couple weeks ago, KawaiiKakkoiiSugoi had the opportunity to interview “active live anime & vocaloid singer, performer, and lyricist,” Yukie Dong! Perhaps a video of her performance will give you a better idea of what she does. (Yukie is the one in the Hatsune Miku cosplay)
Yukie has been performing at conventions such as Anime Expo, Fanime, Ani-maid Cafe, Fanimaid Cafe, HyperCon, SF Japan Town Cherry Blossom Festival, Anime On Display, Anime Destiny, San Jose’s Spirit of Japantown Festival, and Genki Con. She has been even invited to hold her own concert in Europe!
If you’re still not impressed, Yukie collaborates with composers and DJs to create original songs using Vocaloids. Her first original song entitled “花舞月詠譚 (Hanamai Tsukuyomi Tan)/English: Fantasia of Flower and Singing Moon” is featured on SEGA‘s Hatsune Miku Project DIVA Arcade 2nd and Project Diva Dreamy Theater 2nd on PS3. She is also the first non-Japanese singer to be on the game! Here’s the song:
And the moment you’ve all been waiting for, our interview with Yukie Dong! Excuse me for looking all dazed and confused in the video, I am nervous around pretty girls. THERE! I ADMIT IT!
Random factoid about Yukie. She graduated from University of California, Berkeley with double major in Chemical & Material Engineering. O_O Smart, beautiful, and talented. What more can you ask for?
Be sure to check back again for a chance to win a copy of her CD! Courtesy of KawaiiKakkoiiSugoi and Yukie Dong! 😀
