Winner of the ~Voice of McDonald's 2010~ revealed!

McDonald's held a singing contest only open to McDonald's employees. The grand prize was an exclusive recording contract with SME records.

Alice is half-American from her Guamanian father and half-Japanese from her mother. She has always dreamed of being a singer since she was small. At the age of 18, she moved from her hometown in Fukushima to Tokyo to pursue her dreams. She started working at McDonald's while taking vocal lessons and writing music.

She became one of 11 finalists out of 14,168 applicants with her original song, "18ager", and later won the grand prize, a recording contract with SME Records.

On July 14, 2010, Alice will release her debut single, "Ichibanboshi". The single will be supported by 3,600 McDonald's restaurants in Japan that will play the song as in-store background music and have it advertised on 7,500,000 paper tray mats.

dude, thats such an amazing competition

She's cute♥ And she has a really pretty voice. But she gives me a really Crystal Kay-ish feeling so I hope she can break away from that. Crystal Kay is awesome, but we don't need two of her.

Anyways, good on her for winning that contest!

hahahaha, we thought the same xD
kyra_chann 22nd-Jun-2010 07:21 pm (UTC)
A duet from her and Crystal Kay would be awesome!

1990?!?!?! WTF she's same age as me and looks like 4 years older.
baboboy 22nd-Jun-2010 07:30 pm (UTC)
lol you're also from 1990? yeah!
baboona 22nd-Jun-2010 07:28 pm (UTC)
looks like hitoe

sounds generic

anne_revenant 22nd-Jun-2010 07:35 pm (UTC)
I was thinking that too but most people's debut music sounds pretty generic to me. I think they like to play it safe so that they can get radio play.
anne_revenant 22nd-Jun-2010 07:34 pm (UTC)
She's really awesome and has such a unique/exotic look. Although (to me) it looks like they lightened her complexion in the professional photo but it could just be lighting...or she stopped tanning - lol. Not my kind of music but she's definitely a beautiful girl with a beautiful voice.

Uhuu her voice is quiet something!
Really amazing!
Another hot chick enters Japan,

Pretty and talented~ ♥

I don't find anything about her voice to be special and I wasn't liking some of the notes she hit in this song. I wonder how far she'll go, and why they didn't use her original song for her debut.

I was wondering why they aren't using "18ager" too..I want to hear the song that caused her to win. :\
