Nogizaka46 member Erika Ikuta will participate in the popular acoustic live series "MTV Unplugged", marking the idol's first time holding a solo live.
Ikuta is a classically trained musician who is talented at the piano. The idol had represented Tokyo in a national competition when she was in junior high school.
"This is typically a stage where only popular artist have appeared, so when I got the call, I was definitely surprised. This will be my first solo live. Although I'm nervous, I'm not going to overthink it, and would like to enjoy myself as I demonstrate the power of music," Ikuta said.
Ikuta's performance will occur on December 25. The concert will be broadcast live, marking a first for the "MTV Unplugged" series which typically records performances and broadcasts them at a later date.
