Yoshiki is nearly everywhere these days, either as part of a new collaboration in a project or doing something to further a cause. This now philanthropist than always musician will be offering something reimagined on this streaming service as a special titled My Music Story: Yoshiki!
This rock-star is “one of the most influential composers in Japanese history.” In the Disney+ original, which is subtitled in English, YOSHIKI performs reimagined versions of two Disney classics: “Let It Go” from Frozen and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King, along with his own compositions. YOSHIKI also gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at his recording process and how he shaped the arrangements in his Hollywood studio. Since the pandemic, he’s chosen to stay State-side, and continue to work from his adopted home.
As one of the most influential composers in Japanese history, Yoshiki has sold a combined 50 million albums and singles worldwide as a solo artist and as leader of the stadium-packing rock group X Japan. Yoshiki was named by Consequence of Sound as “one of the most influential musicians and composers in Japanese history” and is described by Billboard Magazine as “prolific” and “a musical innovator.” His works span multiple genres, including rock, pop, classical and film.
