Not long ago a friend of mine was in Japan on business. After a pleasant dinner out he was walking the street and came across a small idol unit consisting of three girls, one primary singer and two dancers, performing on the street. That unit was Spark Speaker. They were also selling their first demo CD “Go my way!”, not only that but set an ambitions goal of selling 1000 by March 3, 2017, the date of their first hosted live. He bought one and sent it along to me when he got back to the US. They almost hit their goal, selling 957. Not bad for idols that performed exclusively street shows every Tuesday and Thursday since December 6, 2016.
On March 3rd at their first hosted live “1st SPARK” at 新宿MARZ.The line up that played was not bad either: SparkSpeaker / 藤井勇綺(ex.つばさFly) / Hauptharmonie / Bee×SWAT / DJ▼MaTaTaB!△(椎名あずさ).
At that live Natsumi Hoshimura announced she would be graduating from the group. Quite the blow, but they are resilient. So, now the remaining girls, Yukina Sugihara, Shizuki Kiyama are looking for a new member.
They have set up a website for recruitment: http://spspnewmember.strikingly.com/
Official Website: http://spsp.strikingly.com/
We wish Spark Speaker all the best in the future.
