She was only 38.

Some of you may remember her name if you have the Japanese cast recording of Miss Saigon; she was the original Kim in Tokyo. (And also played Eponine in Les Miz.)

It is very sad.
She was set to play Fantine this year...

May she rest in peace.

I didn't know till I read this topic...
I had been heard she is getting better so it's hard to believe.
Very sad.

I used to listen to her music when I was turning Japanese in the 80s. She was a huge pop star. It's so sad that her life was so short!

=( This makes me so sad. I pray that she is at peace and that she keeps singing in that great choir.
