I just woke this morning and found another shocking news. Thanks to WHG and Aqua ~アクア~ for the headsup.
News from Nikkan Sports, states that Yoshizawa Hitomi decided on her own, that she will be taking part in the Momusu concert scheduled in Osaka today after all!
Professionalism? Not only that, my friends... that's courage, deep sense of responsibility, and love for us fans.
What do you think about Yossie's decision?
For me, she has she won my heart all over again... She is probabaly afraid of affecting the work of her fellow members, and many more UFA staffs, promoters and others. Reshuffling members to fill in her missing position would have been a big headache.
But I wonder about the reaction of the fans in that concert. And the psyche of Yossie while she is performing. I imagine at least some amount of changes in the performance listing should be in place. My heart goes out to her...
I'm going for my Sunday Mass now, to say my prayers to Yossie again.
