Wow! You guys are all truly talented Sonic fans! We received a huge response for our Search for a Singer contest, but the time has come to announce the lucky guy and gal that will be performing It Doesn’t Matter and Believe in Myself live at the Summer of Sonic 2012!
Now, you probably remember us hinting that the Fan Showcase will be done a little bit differently in 2012. Well, we’re now proud to reveal a brand new event for Summer of Sonic 2012 – Jam with Jun.
Yep, you read that correctly – legendary Sonic sound director Jun Senoue will be performing twice at the convention. In a similar fashion to 2010′s Afternoon Tea and 2011′s surprise finale performances, Jam with Jun will see Senoue-san fly solo and play a few hits from the huge history of Sonic the Hedgehog game music.
This time around, though, Jun is also going to have a little help from some fans. And this is where our Search for a Singer winners Daniele and Jasmine come in! Both will be singing It Doesn’t Matter and Believe in Myself live on stage, while Jun plays along with them. How awesome is that? Don’t worry if you didn’t win though – there will be an opportunity for the whole crowd to get involved too!
Jun will also be jamming with two musically-gifted fans – Antony Turner will be performing a track with the Sonic composer on guitar (you might remember Antony from 2011′s Summer of Sonic Marriage Proposal), and Daryl Sautter will be playing on violin. It really will be a legendary variety performance that you won’t want to miss!
Jam with Jun will take place on the stage in the main hall from 13:00 to 13:45.
