Background Singers of iM@S
« on: February 17, 2013, 01:51:20 PM »
Well, there are quite a few background singers in THE iDOLM@STER's history but I can't seem to find any names...
Examples:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBs6NK-hwt4 - Kimi wa Melody Jazz Arrange
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jU2QKJfOQk - THE iDOLM@STER (in English?)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB8j4pnPagI - Marionette no Kokoro

The list could go on for all the karoke/REM@STER versions... The only ones identified on the wiki are Akira Kushida (串田 アキラ) and the judge Tetsuya Karuhiguchi...

I'd love to credit them on the wiki, but finding any information on them is difficult when you can't read Japanese...
"An idol's job is to carry everybody's dreams. They're supposed to use song and dance to make people happy. When the famous idols I know appear on TV or do concerts... That alone makes the audiences watching them smile. THAT'S WHY I WANT TO BE AN IDOL TOO..."

I was actually thinking about making a thread like this.

I'd bet the best place to find that information would be the credit roll if the song's a part of the original game. Sometimes they're uncredited, though.

If it wasn't, but got released on a CD later, it's possible they may have put that information on the CD insert.

EDIT: I can confirm Koi Kaze has that information, but I want some sleep so I'll just give you guys a pic. Deciphering names kinda sucks.
