Up Front Agency Will Hold A Charity Event

6 04 2011

Up Front recently announced that it will hold a charity event titled Ganbarou Nippon Ai wa Katsu in order to gather funds to donate to the Red Cross to help victims and those affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Sendai.

According to the article 98 members of Up Front and other affiliated companies will support the project, with many of them participating in a fundraising event in three locations: Yamashita Park, Motomachi Shopping Street, and Yokohama Chinatown from 11:00 ~ 16:00.

Apart from the event they will also release a cover of KAN’s Ai wa Katsu for cellphones which will be sung at the event with 131 people from Up Front Group as well as associated companies with Takao Horuichi leading the song. The song will be available on Recochoku on the same day.

Here is a list of the members that will support the project but that won’t be able to participate in the event (most likely due to other planned events and concerts):

  • Sugita Jirou
  • Berryz Koubou
  • Mizawa Sachika
  • Kagawa Akira
  • Nakazawa Yuko
  • Yui Kaori
  • Hatake
  • Abe Natsumi
  • Temiyan
  • Omata Masako
  • Satoda Mai
  • Yasu Megumi
  • Hirayama Miki
  • Tanaka Yoshitake
  • Matsui Erina
  • Morning Musume。
  • Tokkii

A full list of members participating in the event is after the break at the bottom of the post since there are quite a lot of members (about 60).

I’m glad to see that UFA is planning a charity event since many other companies have already planned out events, and while H!P had a few donation boxes at some of their recent events it seems like this event will be the most effective way to help.

It seems that it will be about 5 hours long, which means that it is quite a long show for all of the groups and artists that will attend the event, but it’s great news since that means that there is plenty of time and help to gather donations.

I encourage fans who can go to event to do so, and if they can to donate as well, since it is a great way to support those who were affected by the tragedy.

Hopefully we get to see some pictures from the event since it seems like this will be a pretty memorable event for fans of any UFA member.
