The unlikely collaboration of Disney and YOSHIKI shocked and delighted his millions of fans worldwide, who have long revered him as the fast-drumming rebel who pioneered rock in his home country. But YOSHIKI, also a gifted pianist and composer, has gone on to worldwide success in classical music – so when Disney asked to him to star in their new documentary series, he knew it would be a natural fit. In fact, he performs the songs in the program on his signature crystal grand piano with a string quartet.
Disney+ is their official global video streaming service featuring works by Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. “Disney My Music Story” is the Disney+ original documentary series that offers an unprecedented look at celebrated artists through exclusive interviews, rare footage, and special performances of new Disney song arrangements.
As a solo artist and leader of the stadium-packing rock group X Japan, YOSHIKI has sold 50 million albums and singles worldwide. He has headlined the world’s most prestigious venues, such as Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, and Wembley Arena; and has sold out the Tokyo Dome a record-setting 18 times. He also composed the theme for the Golden Globe Awards, a classical concerto for the Emperor of Japan, and the Hello Kitty theme song, as well as the theme for the hit animation series, Attack on Titan. YOSHIKI has collaborated with Beatles producer George Martin, Roger Taylor of Queen, and Sarah Brightman; and most recently Bono, will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, and St. Vincent. YOSHIKI is currently composing music for Hollywood films and other soon-to-be-announced TV projects.
