American Singer Yuna Ito has been missing from the music industry since the end of 2010 when she released her Love: Singles Best 2005—2010 album. However, the songstress just made an appearance at Singapore's Men's Fashion Week 2012, and performed a few of her hits and gave some interviews.
Having been born in Los Angeles to a Japanese father and Korean mother, Ito is fluent in English, Japanese, and Korean. The singer has sang for many openings and themes for dramas and animes, and has sold over 1.8 million albums and singles in her 7 year career, and even collaborated with legends such as Celine Dion.
Ito explained that during the past year, she's been on a slight break taking lessons in jazz, salsa, ballet, and burlesque. Ito stated I think my career moved too fast. That's why I'm taking now to rediscover myself.
Ito went on to state that she is working on another album that will contain love ballads, the music she grew up on. She hopes to interject some R&B styles from older singers like Luther Vandross as well. Ito also stated she is open to recording some Korean pop songs as she is fluent in the language.

Here is an English interview she gave for Men's Fashion Week (A separate interview from the one above).
