The greatest singer in Japan! Never been happier to find her songs in iTunes. Thanks, Apple!

A voice that spans generations… She will never be forgotten.

As a child, I would watch Japanese variety shows. I was mesmerized by this beautiful woman who would dress up as a samurai warrior and sing these wonderful songs. At the time I didn't know her name, or what the songs were about. It wasn't until years later when I asked my mom if she remembered who the woman was, and she told me it was Hibari Misora.

Thank you so very much Apple, for bringing such a wonderful talent to the U.S. iTunes. (I still hold out hope that someday her old films will be available on iTunes as well. Please…) :)
