Announced earlier this week, the opening theme to GONZO’s “Romeo × Juliet” series will be a cover of the internationally known pop song, “You Raise Me Up” — already recorded more than 125 times around the world in different languages. The theme will be performed by Korean-American R&B singer Lena Park — who is often referred to as the “Utada Hikaru of Korea” by Japanese fans. A sample of the song can be heard on the main page of the newly revised official R×J webpage. Photos of the recording session with Australia’s Eminence Symphony Orchestra is also available for public view.
