Mayu's "Five Songs That Changed Me"

Brian McKnight: One Last Cry

His grace notes are awesome and he was the first foreign artist I liked. This is my favorite song of his. Even if I wanted to copy his gentle voice, I can’t. The first time I saw his concert, I couldn’t stop crying.

Jonathan Larson: Seasons of Love (from the musical Rent)

In my student days, I performed in the musical “Rent” on stage at my music college. At that time, I sang this song a lot and really loved it. The music is beautiful and the lyrics are very good. No matter how many times I listen to this song, I can’t get enough of it.

Jose James: Trouble

From the first moment I heard Jose James, I was his big fan. I like his groovy sound and his cool, sweet voice. Whenever I hear this song, it makes me shout “yay!”

Jessie J: Mama Knows Best

Her strong voice gave me goosebumps. I was so overwhelmed by her performance that I forgot to breathe. I want to have a powerful voice like hers.

Alicia Keys: If I Ain’t Got You

This is the song I have sung the most in my life. I love Alicia’s husky voice. She sings and plays the piano. I like that, I think it’s very cool.
