Jero – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jero (ジェロ? born Jerome Charles White, Jr. in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on September 4, 1981) is an American-born Japanese enka singer. His maternal grandmother was Japanese. He is the first black enka singer in Japanese music history.

I like enka for some reason. It is sort of Clint Eastwood getting in touch with his sensitive musical soul. There’s a serious comic element in nostalgia… and probably concealed weapons.
