Mika Nakashima is the Cinderella girl of the new era.

She had always dreamed of becoming a singer since she was a child. She decided not to attend high school, and pursued her dream in a musical career. The very first demo-tape she sent to a record company had given her the chance. She was chosen out of 3000 girls, as the heroine of the 2001 fall season drama, "KIZUDARAKE NO LOVE SONG (Scarred Love Song)" of the Fuji TV station. In November,she made her sensational debut from Sony Music Associated Records, with the song "STARS",which was also the theme song of the drama.

Her second single "CRESCENT MOON", a groovy track with an 80's flavor, was the limited products of 100,000 copies only. And amazingly it was sold out in the first day of its release.
Her third single "ONE SURVIVE" is also getting great feedback, tying-up with TVCF (Kodak and ROHTO) which Mika herlself also appeared in. Mika has won her a vivid public recognition and aroused the excitement in many listeners of her generation. It was not a surprise that She has received "New Artist Of The Year" in The Japan Gold Disc Award.

Keep your eyes on Mika, the pop star phenomenon of the new generation!
