    Thumbs up Arakawa sings on video in NHK World TV (Flowers Will Bloom)

    I happened to watching the int'l cable news station, NHK World, the other day and happened to catch a 4-minute video of various Japanese VIPs holding flowers and singing a new song 'Flowers Will Bloom,' as a tribute to those lost in the March 2011 tragedies. Each VIP sang for a few measures. I recognized Shizuka Arakawa, looking so beautiful in a beige draped-front dress, with her hair down. (She has a lovely singing voice!) Takeshi Honda also made a brief appearance. All of the VIPs return to sing the last few measures of the song together. There is a running translation in English captions.

    I'm not sure if it will be repeated. It wasn't even listed in the NHK viewer's guide that day, taking the normal place of 'World Heritage' show. Maybe somebody will upload it to YouTube and post a link here?
