Angela Quotes

  • "This is my major debut single. This song is a love song where I come face-to-face with my 'Home'. However, I'm not singing about my birthplace, Tokushima, or even Okayama. I'm singing about a family's unconditional love. I was thinking of the ones I love when I wrote the song. I'm sure that this will be the one song that keeps coming back to me in my career." -- Angela Aki
