Ray’s final live performance scheduled to be held in the summer of 2017.
It has been five years since her major debut as a singer.
Ray thanked her fans for being supportive of her for the past five years, and she is truly sorry for the sudden announcement.

[Translation to be out soon!  8:03pm]

“To my always supportive fans,

Thank you so much for your warm support.

I, Ray, have decided to have my final live performance held in the summer of 2017,
and I will be graduating from my artist activities.

Today have been roughly five years since my major debut,
I have really met a lot of people, sang in various places, experienced various things that I cannot normally experience.
And more than anything, I was able to meet many wonderful fans.

I have been fond of singing since I was a child.
I have always wanted to bring the smile to everyone, even if it’s a little.
It has been my utmost effort and I have enjoyed all the past activities.
On the other hand, since last year I began to dwell on my life and future,
What can I do other than singing?
I have questioned this myself.

Under these circumstances, I have found another unfulfilled big dream,
and I want to challenge it.

I have discussed it with my staff, and we came to a consensus.
The staff accepted my selfish decisions and wishes.

And more than anything, announcing this abruptly to my fans,
I am really sorry.

Next month I will refrain from my one-man live since the 5th anniversary of my debut,
however, various other event appearances have been decided.
Until that day till I graduate from being a singer, I will still be the usual cheerfully and brightly me.
I think,
I am glad to have spent the happiness time together.
January 25, 2017
Ray”
