Exhibiting exceptional singing, acapella skills and harmony as a chorus, Little Glee Monster made their major debut in 2014. In 2017, the vocal group performed as a supporting act for global stars like Earth, Wind & Fire and Ariana Grande during their Japan tours, and made their first performance at the NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen. In 2018, they embarked on their first arena tour, and performed again on NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen. Now, they have recorded their original song “I BELIEVE” in support of ASIAN ELEVEN, which was released on their fourth album, FLAVA, in January 2019. The members of the group are all supporting this border-transcending exchange that will deepen the bonds between Southeast Asia and Japan through football!
The Japan Foundation Asia Center, Japan Football Association (JFA), and Japan Football League (J.League) have been carrying out various football exchange projects between Southeast Asia and Japan. This year, the culmination of these activities led to the formation of ASIAN ELEVEN, a team of under-18 players, selected from Southeast Asian countries. The aim is to create the most diverse team in Asia. The debut for this team, the international friendly football match “JapaFunCup,” will be held as part of “Asia in Resonance 2019,” a celebration of cultural exchange between Southeast Asia and Japan, presented by the Japan Foundation Asia Center.
