Ayumi Hamasaki (rumoured to have) regained sense of hearing
(Japanese online gossip source: Entame and online news source: Mainichi) Incredible innit? So incredible I began to suspect that something was amiss, because even though these sites reported that she had regained her sense of hearing there were no explicit details!
Mainichi started off by reporting on her concert held on the night of 8th April 2008. During the encore almost 12000 fans sang “Who…” in unison as a surprise for Ayumi Hamasaki. She was very moved and shocked, covering her mouth with her left hand and had tears streaming down all over her face until staff brought her some towels with which she could wipe them.
There is a part of that song which goes:
これからも ずっとこの歌声が あなたに届きます様にと…。
which means roughly “and from now on I’d like to always reach you with my singing”, and is something that Ayu had mentioned even after news of her losing her sense of hearing in one ear. This time round however, it was her fans who wanted to reach out to Ayu with their support through their voices. (so sweeet!! =)
Anyway some authorized source said that he/she did not know the extent to which her ear has recovered, but that it seems like she has regained some of her powers of hearing. Entame noted that there have been doubts raised in the cybersphere (or blogsphere) so I guess we’ll just hang around and wait for more conclusive news!
