Beth Uriel's Mekasi Café presents: Meiko Tsurusawa

Singing opera to paint home for young men.


Meiko Tsurusawa will be signing to raise funds for the re-painting of Beth Uriel, a home for young men in Observatory. Meiko performs in unusual places and can sing national anthems of 45 countries and has been singing them instilling patriotism and nationalism in people. She has travelled to over 30 countries encouraging world peace and social change through her talent. Next on her list is the Mekasi social enterprise coffee shop run by Beth Uriel. 


Opera singing is the most difficult form of singing that dates back to late 15th century and involves strong vocal and use of the natural voice without any alteration. Meiko Tsurusawa received praises for her opera singing from international first-class musicians. Despite the adversities she Mieko through when she was diagnosed with a disease, she did not give up. That has made her understand that focus and effort can create miracle.


"When I was six years old, I suffered from severe sickness and my half body was almost paralyzed," she said. "That time I heard a voice from heaven telling me that my mission is to sing. Since then I have considered it to be a spiritual connection and have embarked on my journey of making a difference."


She plans to visit more developing countries to bring people together through her singing as music is the only power that makes everyone dance to the same beat regardless of the differences.
