Ryota has such a beautiful smile and sounds great singing live. And I can't believe the guy is 30. Here's his birthday post from a few days ago.

Happy Birthday
8th October 2011

This is Ryota!
I'll turn 30 on 9th October(^o^)v
and the staff from the agency prepared a cake and sang Happy Birthday for me(。≧∇≦。)
It's my favourite cake from Qu'il fait bon!!
It was really delicious.

So happy--

Many many thanks!

The 30-year-old Matsui Ryota
will also go forward with all his might,
so everyone please cheer me on

Here's a live of 'Ashita, Boku wa Kimi ni Ai ni Iku' during the promotion of their album 'Atlas' at Tsuruoka, Yamagata on 29 May 2011.

Wakaba's 7th single 'Akari' was chosen as the campaign song for an anti-suicide project. They wrote the song after a fan of theirs committed suicide. An article from Mainichi daily news here.

A few more photos of that smile.
