Singer YUI's 20th single, "Green a.live," has sold 56,000 CDs in its first week of release, reaching the No. 1 spot on Oricon's chart for Oct 17.
YUI, 24, wrote the song to encourage victims of the March 11 disaster. YUI visited a school in Miyagi Prefecture and held a mini live event there. She said that "I tried to put into the song all the emotions I felt when I went to Miyagi. I hope it will offer some hope to the people in the disaster-hit areas."© Japan Today
