How did I… How… Sorry. Let me start over.

I’m standing here as the first Japanese artist in history to receive this honor.

Thank you. Um… Wow.

First, thank you to my friends. Thank you for not giving up on me.

And to my fans; you are the reason I still breathe. You’re the reason I still exist. I cannot count how many times I wanted to give up.

Last, but not least, I want to thank you to my mother. Last year, she passed away. My mother went up to the sky. But, I still feel she’s here with me.

I want to dedicate this moment in my life to my beloved mother, who always believed in me.

She was the very first person to see my hands and feet and now she can see them from the sky looking down here at Hollywood.
