Third generation member Maki Goto holds wedding ceremony
It seems that girl group Morning Musume never stops making good news. On February 22, 2014, former third generation member Maki Goto, 29, held a wedding ceremony and a reception party with her husband whom she married in July 2014. It is said that over 200 people were in attendance at the party including many of the former Morning Musume members such as Kaori Iida, Natsumi Abe, Mari Yaguchi, Kei Yasuda, Rika Ishikawa, Nozomi Tsuji, Ai Takahashi, and Ai Kago. These people blessed the couple. Goto says that it was always her dream to wear a wedding dress. She spent six months to prepare for this so for her, it was fun. For Goto this is great news considering that she has had to go through personal tragedy in her life with her brother’s arrest and her mother’s death back in 2010. Kei Yasuda who is really beautiful also has gotten married as has Yuko Nakazawa. Here is the music video for the song called Eyes. What’s funny is that Maki Goto is seen smoking a cigarette in the video!
Morning Musume formed in 1997 now goes by the name of Morning Musume 15 and has Mizuki Fukumura as their band leader. Fukumura took over this job from Sayumi Michishige who graduated from the group in November 2014 after more than 11 years with the group. Preceding Michishige as band leader was Risa Niigaki who was with Morning Musume from 2001-2012 and she graduated in May 2012 along with Aika Mitsui. The group has released 57 singles including the triple sided single called TIKI BUN/Shaba Daba Doo/Miokuri Bijin. Morning Musume 15 now has 12 generations of members but the 3rd and 11th generation had only one member join the group. Sakura Oda was the only girl to join the group for its 11th generation. And Maki Goto was the only member to join the group as part of its third generation. Maki Goto joined the group after the second generation of members which featured Mari Yaguchi, Sayaka Ichii, and the mentioned Kei Yasuda. Congratulations to Maki Goto as she starts 2015 in a great way with this ceremony and party!
