Top Ten Greatest Non-American Singers


The Top Ten

1 Yuya Matsushita (Japan)

Oh gosh, where should I start? His voice is recognizable. It's soft yet so sweet and cute. His songs makes me want to hear it over and over again. The melody of his songs and his voice mixes perfectly w/
Each other.

Not only does he have great talent as a singer/songwriter, have the strength to push himself to study dance, singing, and acting even into an active career, but he's also a great guy!

He got a strong vocal with sad-like voice. His talent was overwhelming too. He just the best.


He is the best! Not just he's voice, but the way he dance, the way that he is... Every day I love him more and more!
