Miki Matsubara biography
Natural from Osaka, more specifically from Kishiwada, was born in November 1959 and had contact with music from an early age, mainly due to the influence of his mother, who had already participated in jazz performances. Thus, from the beginning of the 70's, still a child, Miki starts to develop his first original songs.
But it was “Stay With Me” (mayonaka no door), as we said earlier, that was mainly responsible for promoting the singer's success. At the YouTube, the song currently has an incredible 77 million views on a single video. Check it out below:
