This news is over a week old, but “I believe” singer ayaka announced her marriage and upcoming hiatus on April 3. She revealed she had married actor Mizushima Hiro in February, and that she has had the autoimmune disorder Graves’ disease since 2006. Next year, she will take time off to deal with her worsening symptoms.

I never got into ayaka’s music, despite being a huge fan of female singer-songwriters. Still, ayaka’s a talented lady with a good ear for melody, and she comes off as a nice person. I wish the best to her.
