MAI has appeared in many charity events and concerts in and around NYC, including the 2009 Japan Day in Central Park. Mai sites "One Big Love" and "Feeling of Appreciation" as two of the main themes of her songs.

"I want to write and sing songs that make the whole world feeling good," says Mai. Her love for pop music extends into 1960's Japanese pop songs, which she covers often, both in concerts and albums.

Mai's newest six-song album will be released in the U.S. this fall, followed by a Japanese release in early 2010.

Mai will be perfoming from 5 - 6 PM at the NYC Japan Street Fair (Madison Avenue between 43rd and 44th Streets).
