The pan-Asian “girl band” Blush has been around for only 11 months but already has a track record more established groups might envy — a single that hit number-three on the U.S. dance music charts and rapper Snoop Dogg in one of their songs.
This week, the English-singing group, whose members hail from Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Korea and India, will open for the Black Eyed Peas at their Manila concert. They appeared at a Justin Bieber concert in Hong Kong earlier this year.
“The goal for Blush is to become really the first Asian singers to make it big in the West,” said John Niermann, a former president of Walt Disney Co’s Asia-Pacific unit, who brought the band together last year after a broad talent search.
“The idea started several years ago when I was curious why an Asian singer had not really made it to the top of the charts in America,” he told Reuters in Singapore.
The group is made up of Japan’s Natsuko Danjo, Victoria Chan from Hong Kong, Korea’s Ji Hae Lee, Alisha Budhrani from India and Angeli Flores from the Philippines.
