TriviaEdit

  • Heike won the Sharam Q Rock Vocalist Audition aired on the music television show ASAYAN (which goal was to find talents and launch them as new artists) on August 31st 1997. The goal of the audition was to find a female vocalist for the band Sharam Q. Plans were diverted, and Heike became a solo singer instead. Hatake would become her producer, and along with Tsunku and Makoto they wrote, composed and arranged Heike’s debut single.
  • The title song was the song all the contestants had to sing in the final round of the Sharam Q Rock Vocalist Audition. Heike won the audition with despite forgetting the lyrics.[1]
  • Heike's best-selling release.
  • The song was later used as the opening theme song to ASAYAN.
  • The record company For Life issued a double CD compilation album in 2003, featuring some of the artists and their debut songs that had aired on ASAYAN from 1996 to 2003. It includes both Heike’s "GET" and Taiyou to Ciscomoon’s "Tsuki to Taiyou".

ASAYAN ReportEdit

Heike's first live event was held at the Nippon Budokan (a venue for big musical events) on November 6th, 1997 to an audience of ten thousand people. ASAYAN wrote a report about it on their website:

Michiyo Heike’s first live concert!!!

Produced by SharamQ, Michiyo Heike had her first spectacular live concert at Nihon Budokan. Under a strict guideline by Tsunku, the event had been kept secret till the last minute. Her very first concert began at 7:10pm on November 6 ! Everyone held their breath and waited for her to appear on stage. Surrounded by bright laser beams, 10,000 fans, and the thick white smoke, she made an appearance and the crowd went absolutely wild with cheers and applause.

Performing the very first concert in front of 10,000 people is certainly nerve-wrecking. She said her legs were shaking right after coming out on stage. SharamQ was there to loosen up the atmosphere and trying to make her feel at ease. SharamQ must’ve been thinking that this was just the beginning of many obstacles in near future, so they wanted her to get used to being under pressure and overcome the experience. They were impressive MCs! And her very first concert began…

Michiyo Heike:Nice to meet you everyone, my name is Michiyo Heike! Thank you all for coming! I’m about to make my childhood dream come true… Thank you. Here I am, to perform my debut single, ‘GET’ !

They dimmed the lights on stage…And now it’s show time! The fans could feel her nervousness, but as soon as the band began playing her song, she put on an awesome performance without hesitation! Michiyo successfully finished performing her song in front of 10,000 fans. All her life, her dream was to become a singer and nothing else. And she finally made her dream come true on this very special night.

But it’s just getting started, for more challenges to come in near future. I’m looking forward to upcoming successes in her career! After finishing her very first concert…

MIchiyo Heike: “Thank you very much for everything! My legs are still shaking… I was ,very moved by how loud the applauses were.”[2]
