#15 From Idol to Rock Band – Reina Tanaka and The Meaning of "Hometown"(3/3)

  |  Next
popculturechronicles
A lot of idols out there now are out there because they aspired to one day be like Reina Tanaka.
But she has since moved on from her idol days and set sail on a new voyage to a place called rock. It’s a place that will always lead to something more if you continue to make steady effort with your live performances and remain consistent.
Reina Tanaka continues to maintain her commitment to singing and as she sails along on this vessel called LoVendoЯ, alongside all of Reina Tanaka’s adoring fans I will continue to watch and enjoy the ride.
