Biography

 

Ayumi Hamasaki, born in Fukuoka, was abandoned by her father when she was very young. She has been raised by her mother & grand-mother.

She began her career as a model, to earn money to help her familly and also played in a dozen of dramas and movies such as « twin teacher » and « sand grain ». She did not like this environment & she decided to quit.

But at the age of 17, she was spotted in a karaoke by the producer Max Matsuura, working for Avex Trax, the largest record company in Japan. Ayu refuses but Max insists, the future singer agrees at last.

She was sent to New York to take dancing & singing lessons. Her first songs were not best sellers. Her first album, « A song for XX » released on 1999/01/01 was the first step to glory.
