GOLDEN GLOBES THEME COMPOSED BY YOSHIKI
Yoshiki, the classically trained multi-instrumentalist and leader of one of Japan's most successful rock groups, X-Japan, has composed the theme for this year's Golden Globe Awards show. The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs around the world and on Sunday, January 15, 2012, LIVE, in the U.S., coast-to-coast on NBC with the pre-show from 4:00-5:00p.m. (PST)/7:00-8:00p.m. (EST), and main telecast from 5:00-8:00 (PST)/8:00pm-11:00p.m., (EST), hosted by Ricky Gervais from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
"Yoshiki is a world-renowned musician and composer of enormous talent and versatility, who in addition to being a rock superstar has composed for film and television," said HFPA president Dr. Aida Takla-O'Reilly. "As an international organization dedicated to creative achievements, the HFPA® is delighted to have a global musical artist of Yoshiki's stature create the theme for the show."
Added Adelman, "We look forward to incorporating Yoshiki's music into the production of the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards."
"The Golden Globe Awards are extremely prestigious, but the show is also edgy," said Yoshiki, who attended the awards presentation for the first time last year. "I'm a classical pianist and a rock drummer, so it was natural to create something beautiful that also has an edge."
Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA® , the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 190 countries worldwide.
Yoshiki, considered Asia's most influential music artist and biggest rock icon, is also a songwriter, drummer, and a classically-trained pianist. His rock group X Japan has sold 30-million singles and albums combined and filled the 55,000-seat Toyko Dome a record 18 times. Now the band's popularity is spreading throughout the world, having recently completed a sold-out World Tour, performing in North America, Europe, Latin America, and South East Asia. In 1999, Yoshiki composed a piano concerto and performed it with a 77-piece orchestra to celebrate the tenth year of the Emperor of Japan's reign. In 2005, Yoshiki composed the theme song and conducted the Super World Orchestra at the opening ceremony of the World Expo. Previously, Yoshiki also recorded a classical album co-produced and arranged by acclaimed Beatles producer Sir George Martin and performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Beyond music, Yoshiki his own Visa Card and MasterCard issued by one of the largest Japanese banks. Recently, the legendary Stan Lee created a Super Hero based on him, and for the first time, a Hello Kitty product line is named after a person -- "Yoshikitty." In 2010, he launched his non-profit organization Yoshiki Foundation America , which continues to donate to various charitable organizations, including supporting Japanese Earthquake victims.
