Ayumi Ishida, the Japanese idol singer from Sendai whom I consider as one of my role models is now in another year as a member of the group now known as Morning Musume 18. It is time for me to say another big THANK YOU to this Japanese idol singer who is a member of the group’s 10th generation. It is through the power of appreciation that I extend my deepest gratitude and love to a member that has been with Morning Musume since 2011, released four photo books, and has the cutest face in the group among the active members. Ishida, 21, released her 4th solo photo book called 20th Canvas on April 27, 2018. Here is a photo from that photo book 20th Canvas (image source: http://helloproject.wikia.com/wiki/20th_canvas) For more photo book sessions of Morning Musume members, you can view the photo book Natsumi by Natsumi Abe, or her other photo books including SUBWAY and Fin No Hito. Let’s remember that there is Sayumi Michishige’s Mille Feuille photo book or Blue Rose, the last one that she released as a member of Morning Musume. But this space belongs as a space to thank the great Ayumi Ishida of Sendai! Much love and gratitude to you my dear ♥♥! And thank you to all of the people around the world that have viewed this website and have enjoyed it. You are important as well. But Ayumi Ishida: may you be loved, may you be happy, may you be peaceful, and may you be the most successful idol singer of your generation!
Ayumi Ishida, the Japanese idol singer from Sendai and a member of the girl group Morning Musume 17 will be celebrating her 20th birthday on January 7th. Yes that is true! And for those of you that are wondering, Morning Musume is now going to do their activities under the name Morning Musume 17. The group was known as Morning Musume 16 in 2016 and Morning Musume 15 in 2015.
As for Ayumi, she has her own version of the song Wagamama ki no Mama Ai No Joke and is one of the group’s cutest members! I recently wrote about the fact that Japanese idol Sayaka Ichii celebrated her 33rd birthday on December 31, 2016. Ishida is the latest member of the group that will be celebrating her birthday. The quality that makes Ayumi Ishida special is her commitment to dancing. I would say that she treats dancing as something to be cherished. Ishida says in her own words:
I’ve said “I’m good at dancing” when I entered Morning Musume, but since joining Morning Musume I’ve only danced with Morning Musume; there are much more amazing dancers in the world, therefore I don’t want to stop the thought that “the dancing in Morning Musume is amazing,”. I understand that of course dancing is not everything; I want to cherish Morning Musume as a group itself, but I want to stretch out further and further my strength in dancing.
Ishida joined Morning Musume in September 2011 as part of the group’s 10th generation audition. The other girls to join her were Masaki Sato, current sub-leader Haruna Iikubo, and Haruka Kudo. Ishida is also a former member of the groups called Harvest and HI-FIN. Following the 10th generation, the 11th generation of Morning Musume had only one winner. That winner was Oda Sakura. In 2014 shortly before the graduation of Sayumi Michishige, the 12th generation of the group was introduced with four new members then joining. Now Morning Musume 17 has two new members that are part of its 13th generation. It is remarkable how far this group has come! These two new girls are Reina Yokoyama who is 15 and Kaede Kaga who is 17. As for Michishige, she recently revealed that she will be coming back to work in the entertainment industry. She had taken time off and been on a hiatus since her departure from Morning Musume. The group is in good hands with current band leader Mizuki Fukumura. Fukumura who turned 20 last October still has lots of time to really make an impact and increase her popularity in the group. Fukumura released her first solo photobook called MIZUKI. That photobook was shot on the island of Guam in May 2013 and is one of her best ones! I also wrote that former member Natsumi Abe released a photo book of her own called Fin no Hito after she turned 35 years old.
There have been several events that have happened to the group since Ishida joined in 2011. Most of them have been very positive events and that is worthy of celebration even in 2017! For instance, former member Miki Fujimoto gave birth to a baby boy on August 1, 2015. And I also wrote recently that Sayaka Ichii revealed that she is pregnant for the 4th time. Another notable event in the career of Japanese idol Ayumi Ishida is the fact that Morning Musume’s 60th single reached the top of the Oricon Music Charts in December 2015. The single ended up selling 143,000 copies in its first week of release. Happy birthday to the lovely Ayumi Ishida!
