  • YOSHIKI Donates 10 Million Yen to National Center for Global Health and Medicine

    23.April.2020 | MUSIC

    YOSHIKI has donated 10 million yen (approx. $100 million) to Japan’s National Center for Global Health and Medicine via YOSHIKI FOUNDATION AMERICA.

    The National Center for Global Health and Medicine is a governmental medical institution researching infectious diseasesーincluding COVID-19ーas well as immunologic diseases, amongst other things. It is the only national polyclinic centre in Japan and has the biggest number of sickbeds in the country.

     

    With the COVID-19 pandemic throwing the world into disorder, there are currently over 10,000 confirmed cases in Japan. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to see that Japan’s medical care is on the verge of collapse. YOSHIKI donated the money in response to this situation to help support medical workers fighting on the front lines.

     

    YOSHIKI | Comment

    In the US, where I live, there are over 40,000 cases of deaths over the novel coronavirus. And I’m saddened to hear that the infection is spreading in Japan too. I still can’t see any signs that it’s being brought under control. The entertainment industry which I live for and all the industries out there, myself included, are feeling the effects financially and mentally. It’s painful to see.

     

    However, those we must all support the most right now in this situation are the people providing medical care to the patients affected by the coronavirus. I donated in the hopes that it can lend them strength, even if just a little.

     

    And I hope that the thoughts of everyone worried while self-isolating now, and their actions, serves to lend strength to the people in the medical institutions a hundred timesーa thousand times more than what I donated […].

     

    I also want to endeavour to support people as a musician too.

     

    YOSHIKI donated $24,000 dollars to Meals on Wheels in Los Angeles last month to help support food shortages in the US. He also donated $100,000 to the COVID-19 Relief Fund which was created by The Recording Academy® and MusiCares© to help support struggling music artists who are having to postpone and cancel tours in response to the pandemic outbreak.

  • YOSHIKI Shows Off His Drum Skills in New WONDA Coffee Commercial

    15.April.2020 | FOOD / MUSIC

    YOSHIKI has made another graceful return to Asahi Soft Drinks’ commercial series to promote its coffee beverage ‘WONDA.’ The commercial began airing in Japan on April 14, 2020.

    In the previous commercial, we saw YOSHIKI’s beautiful handiwork on the piano. In the latest commercial, he takes to a golden drum set and displays his effortless skills as a drummer.


    YOSHIKI throws his jacket to the side before taking his sticks in hand and getting in the zone. The messages that pop up on the commercial read, “I don’t want to make any compromises. No matter what anyone says. We will become men that never throw away commitment.”


    This theme echoes with YOSHIKI too as will be seen in the behind-the-scenes video set to hit the air this Friday. YOSHIKI makes certain that the performance is perfect by having the staff retake the footage over and over as he earns rounds of applause for his performance.

  • YOSHIKI Donates $100,000 to COVID-19 Relief Fund to Help Struggling Music Artists

    30.March.2020 | MUSIC

    Today, Japanese singer-songwriter, composer, and record producer YOSHIKI donated $100,000 to the COVID-19 Relief Fund through YOSHIKI FOUNDATION AMERICA, a non-profit public interest company managed by the artist himself.


    The COVID-19 Relief Fund was created by The Recording Academy® and MusiCares© to help support struggling music artists who are having to postpone and cancel tours in response to the pandemic outbreak. YOSHIKI is a board member of The Recording Academy®, which is known for presenting the Grammy Awards.


    YOSHIKI said: “In a time when we are being told to conduct self-control and restraint, I’m still called out by people on whether it’s best to put shows on holdーfor the benefit of fans included. The financial damage of that is of course substantial. Many different industriesーnot just the entertainment industryーare on the verge of danger, as are people of varying positions [across society]. As someone in the world of music, I would hope there would be some way of offering help to those involved in the music industry around the world, Japan included, during this difficult time, and so I have donated to the COVID-19 Relief Fund. The danger of COVID-19 is a global problem, not just Japan. I pray from the bottom of my heart that this will all be over much quicker by everyone cooperating to conduct self-restraint and wait this out to lessen the spread of the virus, and that the entertainment industry can once again return to its thriving self.”


     
    Steve Boom, Chairman of the Board at MusiCares, also expressed his deep gratitude to the donations which go towards relieving the burden of musicians and those involved in music. He said that everyone’s cooperation will ensure that the necessary funds and resources are there for people to continue their careers.

     

    YOSHIKI continues to post information related to the coronavirus via his social media pages. On March 11, he interviewed Shinya Yamanaka, the director of the Center for iPS Cell Research and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The interview can be seen below and has English subtitles.

  • Bono, will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, & YOSHIKI Collaborate On ‘#SING4LIFE’ to Spread Love During Coronavirus Pandemic

    28.March.2020 | MUSIC

    will.i.am posted a video on his official YouTube channel for a song entitled #SING4LIFE which features himself, U2’s Bono, and Jennifer Hudson on vocals and YOSHIKI on piano.

    Bono wrote the song after being inspired by the people of Italy who, despite being isolated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, were singing from their rooftops and balconies.

     

    As soon as Bono wrote the song he uploaded his solo version to his Instagram page. He subsequently collaborated with will.i.am who got his longtime friend YOSHIKI on board, and Jennifer Hudson joined thereafter.



    YOSHIKI answered the call to arms and wrote the score immediately, recording the piano just two hours later.

    will.i.am described the song’s intention on Instagram: “When you see empty streets…The empty streets shouldn’t make you feel depressed or afraid…When you see empty streets during these times, try to feel love…The empty streets is a sign that humanity is doing the right thing.”

     

    He continues: “There are a lot of people feeling anxiety and worry and stress…So we #SING4LIFE to lift up their spirits ..We #SING4LIFE to bring them some type of JOY during these times.”

  • Yoshiki Covers ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ in New Wonda Coffee Commercial

    14.March.2020 | FOOD / MUSIC

    Asahi Soft Drinks released a new television commercial in Japan on Tuesday for its Wonda X-BITTER black coffee drink which features Japanese singer-songwriter and musician Yoshiki.

    The commercial is centred around making a fresh start, which is where Yoshiki’s own arrangement of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star comes into play. We see him abducted in a UFO in comical style and then perform his own transcendent cover of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in a forest.

     

    As he sits in the evening forest, Yoshiki takes a sip of Wonda X-BITTER, after which a blue light shines down on him, signifying the turning of a new leaf. A boy looks at him in wonder as he begins to perform the song, and then agape as Yoshiki is beamed up by the UFO.


    Yoshiki expressed his desire to add his own arrangement to the song on the day the video was shot and wrote the music score there and then. He went to practice the song alone in the studio after writing it, and in almost no time at all, returned for the main shoot. The staff couldn’t hide their astonishment at Yoshiki’s musical talent.

     

    YOSHIKI Interview

    Q: Please tell us which scene most left an impression on you, or a particular scene that you want people to look out for.
    Yoshiki: Definitely the last scene when I fly up into the sky. I found that scene really amusing where I’m taken by the UFO together with the piano. The piano playing starts off super simple, but the performance quickly escalates into something complex. Be sure to check that out.

    Q: Did you have to do any prep for this commercial shoot?
    Yoshiki: I researched “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.” I wondered, how can I make this song that everyone knows interesting? I also studied Mozart’s arrangement.

     

    Q: What’s a time when you have to concentrate during your everyday life?
    Yoshiki: It’s got to be when I’m writing music. It’s the kind of work where you make something from nothing, so you need some serious concentration skills. When I’m composing, I mostly don’t use any instruments. I work by writing music notes down on a blank sheet, so there are times when I go to concentrate for an hour, or two hours, and before I know it half the day has already gone.”
