Reina Tanaka-Singer Of The Band Lovendor

So as I promised, here is a look at the life and career of Reina Tanaka, a rock singer for the band called Lovendor. I know that it is strange for some people to visualize Tanaka being a member of a rock band. Tanaka Reina was one of the longest-serving members of the girl group Morning Musume. She was a member of the group from 2003 through 2013. Tanaka graduated from Morning Musume on May 21, 2013.

She passed the audition for the group’s 6th generation and started her work with Eri Kamei, Sayumi Michishige, and Miki Fujimoto (now Shoji). In July 2003, she made her debut with the group’s 19th single called Shabondama. She provided main vocals for that song. The next two years would be very busy for Tanaka. She was chosen to be the leader of a unit called Aa! along with Miyabi Natsuyaki (Berryz Kobo) and Airi Suzuki (C-ute). The group would not be active for very long. They released only one single called FIRST KISS in October 2003. In 2004, she was featured on two solo versions of the song called Memory Seishun no Hikari. Her first album as a member of Morning Musume was Ai no  Dai 6Kan. The group split into two other groups. These were Morning Musume Otome Gumi and Morning Musume Sakura Gumi. Tanaka was put in Otome Gumi.

In 2008, Tanaka became a member of the unit called High-King. The unit was formed to promote the musical called Cinderella. In 2011, she would star in a play called Reborn Inochi no Audition. Joining her in this play was Risa Niigaki, the 9th generation, and Haruka Kudo.  On December 23 of that year, Tanaka would attend a Christmas dinner show with Michishige at Prince Hotels. Tanaka would star in another stage play called Stacy’s Shouju Saisatsu Kageki from June 6th through the 12th. On July 27th and 28th 2013, Tanaka with her Lovendor band mates did a performance at the 2013 J-POP Summit Festival in San Francisco.
