Regards to Izumi Sakai (ZARD’s vocalist)

(This is a copy of the same thing I wrote on my other blog)

Izumi Sakai (a.k.a. Kamachi Sachiko), ZARD’s vocalist, aged 40, was hospitalized since June 2006 after discovering she had cervical cancer. In April 2007, the cancer had moved to her lungs. Even so, she was fighting against it. It was on May 26, 2007, that she accidentally fell from the stairs that hit her head hard. The next day she died from the accident.

Izumi was talented. She composed her own music. I’m out of words to describe it, the only thing I know is, her music stuck on my mind. Her voice was so beautiful that it touches people deep inside. She is a legend. I wanted to show my regards to Izumi Sakai and wanted her to live forever in people’s heart.

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of her. At first, I knew her under the name, ZARD. The first song I heard from Izumi was Unmei no Ruuretto Mawashite, a theme song for the popular anime/manga series titled Meitantei Conan (Detective Conan). Despite the fact that I love this song so much, I did not check her other works. I wish I did.

Her death is a great lost to the music world.
RIP, Izumi Sakai.
