Rina performs Tomadoi

知念里奈 (Chinen Rina) sings Akina Nakamori’s “Tomadoi” on 夜のヒパッレ(Yoru no Hippare).


Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

  1. She sang it reasonably well … however, if you close your eyes, she sounds like any other Jpop singer, especially Namie.

    The thing about great singers is that they have distinctive voices, and once you hear it, you can identify them immediately. Akina is one of them, so Rina has a far way to go.

    BTW, I have never seen Akina perform Tomadoi. Has she sung it live before?

  2. Hah?!? I won’t even pass her. She sounded terrible! But I must say “Tomadoi” is a difficult song.
    I’ve not seen Akina perform Tomadoi live too….

  3. Ok. Maybe I have to listen to her one more time. I had it on really low (Volume: 1) because the TV was on and I didn’t want to disturb John watching it. I only thought she sounded okay.

    Of course, I don’t think you can compare her to Akina …
