I thought this should deserve its own thread.

MTV VMAJ is holding a live event where artists will perform and donate their personal items to raise money for charity.
This event will be streamed live on Ustream 6/25 from 9PM~11PM Japanese time.

And here's alan's comment...(She said it in Japanese, but it was translated to English by the English version of MTV's site)
Quote :

Now we are facing a lot of challenges in Japan. A great number of people have lost their family and their houses, and they are suffering from sadness without knowing where to find their future. But I believe that it is important to have a courage to take a step forward. Staying depressed would lead you nowhere. We can create a bright future with our own hands. After the earthquake, I once again realized the value of life and family. All the emotions we feel every day is the proof that we are alive. That means “life,” I believe. After the massive earthquake in China’s Sichuen province in 2008, Japanese people helped us by donating a lot of money. It is my turn now. Through music, I would like to return the favor to the people of Japan.

Thanks for informing pommy! Didn't know there's gonna be a live broadcast.

I'm excited for her performance! If she's gonna perform with Marty Friedman, it might be the heavy metal version of 'Ashita e no Sanka'?! XD. I'm also looking forward to hear 'Minna de ne' in full length

Pommy was totally right about 'Ikiru'! It sounded a bit messy with Marty's heavymetal guitar but it was still nice

And how could we forget her must-perform-everytime song?! XDDD... Yeah, the other song she performed was 'Natsukashii Mirai', also with Marty. She sounded beautiful as always, but to be honest, I hope they'd create a new 'Natsukashii Mirai' already because this song's 3 years old and it's getting old.. I'm sure other fans would love to hear other newer songs as well

^ i'm waiting for a Chinese version of it, and why not re-arrange it a little bit haha

Wait... she actually performed @ today's MTV VMAJ ?! I'm so stupid ! I stopped watching it when TH was performing, I was only waiting for Namie Amuro to perform. Hope someone recorded it then...

Ikiru just doesn't fit an electric guitar....It fits like a piano X_X

It just sounded really bad...

I'm beginning to think when alan go on TV to promote this single, she will be singing Ikiru a lot >_>

I think I automatically tuned out the electric guitar during ikiru... since mostly it sounded kind of like the guitar and her singing were two separate things. They just don't gel >_< A traditional guitar would probably have been better.

I wanted alan to sing Minna De Ne as well, but it makes sense that she chose to perform Ikiru. After all, Ikiru was written to raise peoples' spirits after the earthquake if I recall correctly. While Minna De Ne on the other hand is, you know, a song about pandas. But I guess that could raise peoples' spirits as well x3

But I agree that Ikiru sounds kind of weird when paired with Marty's guitar-playing. It works with Natsukashii Mirai though!
