Kylee to make a US debut performance at Otakon 2011
Kylee is a singer and currently lives in Arizona. Born to an American Father, and a Japanese mother, Kylee is the product of music without borders.
Kylee sang the National Anthem at an NBA game when she was only 11 years old, and at 15, she became the youngest artist to perform at SUMMER SONIC. She’s the new generation Pop Icon, full of extraordinary and unprecedented experiences, But by day, she’s your average high school honor student.
In March 2010, Kylee made her major label debut with “Kimi ga Irukara”, the theme for her big screen debut in “Dareka ga Watashini Kiss wo Shita”. In July 2010, she released her 2nd single “missing / IT’S YOU” that spread through the blogosphere like wildfire and became a smash hit. The success was followed by the release of her 3rd single “Everlasting” – the main theme of the movie “Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn episode 2” and has achieved #2 on the USEN request chart. Finally coming home to perform in America, Kylee made her network debut on NBC’s Today show May 12th and 13, 2011, with NBC’s TODAY show calling Kylee a “Real Hannah Montana”. On July 13th, she will release her new single “NEVER GIVE UP!”
She will be performing on Sunday afternoon at Otakon 2011 for the very first time in the US. Otakon 2011 will be held July 29 – 31 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
