Ishikawa Yuko made her musical debut with the single "Jinchouge" in 1979 after being noticed at a Yamaha Popular Music Contest. While she started writing her lyrics and composing beginning with her second single "Let Me Fly", it wasn't until her third single "Crystal Morning" that Ishikawa became a smash hit. In 1981, her seventh single "Cinderella Summer" was also a big hit. She was recognized as not only a good-looking singer with a beautiful voice, but also a talented songwriter.
