Singer, dancer, actress, and model.

Born June 1, 1988 in Wakayama-ken, Japan, Nami Tamaki had always dreamed of becoming a singer from a young age. She is known for her radiating positive attitude and smile. In her mid-teens, she moved to Tokyo and attended many dance schools and auditions. In a Sony Music Audition, she performed Survivor by Destiny's Child and was selected out of 1000 contestants.

After the anime Mobile Suit Gundam SEED came out around 2002, Nami Tamaki's 2003 debut single's Believe was chosen to be the third opening theme, seen here. In 2004, she released her first album, titled Greeting, under the record labels Sony and Tofu Records.She has had a few other anime and game industry tie-ins, as well as a few roles in stage plays, most notably the Japanese version of High School Musical, and films, such as the live-action movie version of the anime Lovely★Complex. Since 2009, she has released music under the record label Universal-J simply under the name Nami.

In her earlier years, she was popularly known as the Princess of JPop. Her music style shifts along the genres of JPop, dance-pop, pop-rock, R&B, and Disco. (That's right. You heard me. DISCO.) She currently has released five albums, 19 singles, and has compiled a few covers of other various songs from other artists. For more on her, check out the other wiki here.

In 2014 she started having trouble singing and sought treatment. She was diagnosed with a chronic condition of vocal nodules. This unfortunately greatly impacted her musical output, and from 2015 through 2022 she only released three singlesnote .

In 2023, she started to become more active on social media for the 20th anniversary of her professional debut, opening up a Youtube channel on April 20, 2023 and uploading many of her old music videos from the 2000s. Rumors also began swirling that she may be involved with the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Freedom film project, especially after she appeared at both the “P Fever Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Presentation” in May and then performing at “Mobile Suit Gundam SEED FESTIVAL ~CONNECT Beyond That Era~” in November.

On December 10, 2023, the rumors were confirmed when it was officially revealed that she had been tapped to sing once more for the franchise for SEED Freedom with said single "Reborn" to release on January 24, 2024, two days before the movie comes out.

On Christmas Day 2023, it was announced that she will release a new album in March 2024, "Singularity." This will be her first original album in 13 years since the 2011 release of Ready! (the previous 2014 release was a cover album, NT Gundam Cover). The announcement also revealed she had returned to Sony Music's label.
