Exile Releases Charity SongPublished on August 20th, 2011.
After the Tohoku Earthquake, Exile has made a lot of efforts to help the victims of the disaster by making donations, visiting disaster areas and distributing food. The group also created a powerful and upbeat song called “Rising Sun”, to help cheer up the victims.
The song “Rising Sun” was writter by member Atsushi who sought to express his wish for the rapid recovery of areas afflicted by the Tohoku Earthquake. It’s said that Atsushi and Takahiro spent long hours making many minor adjustments to the song. For the dance, aside from the original moves, they also incorporated moves from Morioka’s “Yosakoi Dance” and arranged it into their own style.
