AKB48's Iwasa Misaki to make her solo debut as Enka singer
It's been announced that AKB48 member Iwasa Misaki (16) will be making her solo debut as an Enka singer under Tokuma Japan Communications! Though Iwasa is the third member in the group to make a solo debut after Maeda Atsuko and Itano Tomomi, she will be the first to step out as an Enka singer.
Iwasa commented, "I was surprised but very happy, as it's been my dream to make a solo debut as a singer since I was little. It's all thanks to the people who are always supporting me. I will continue trying my best as Iwasa Misaki with the mindset of standing on a new start line."
Iwasa belongs to 'Team A' of AKB48, and is also active as part of subunit Watarirouka Hashiritai 7 as well. She's always intended to become an Enka singer from the beginning, and has often performed Enka songs at AKB48's events. Iwasa has transferred her label to Nagara Productions back in April, which houses many veteran Enka singers.
At this time, the idol is diligently honing her skills, and is scheduled to make her debut on February 1st, 2012.
In related news, she will attend the production event for "Shinshun Enka Matsuri", which will be held at Nippon Gaishi Hall (Nagoya) on February 9th, Osaka-jo Hall (Osaka) on February 11th, and Yokohama Arena (Yokohama) on February 25th.
