"Every song on this album has a special personal meaning for me, even the upbeat dance songs, but the most challenging one was Sakura hara hara Chiru
. One of my favorite memories is my friendship with a homeless man who went out of his
way to support me during my live street performances in Santa Monica. Even though he was struggling, he always came to watch me sing and he was always helping others. I interpreted his actions as a manifestation of God’s help, and I wanted to write a
song about his unconditional love. I'll never forget him, and I believe the power of music can show love, open our hearts, and bring us together."
