I'm not quite sure, but I remember reading somewhere that Amatsuki had a contract with a company. Is this true or was the person just making it up?
That is true. He has joined and is now under contract with a company. (*squints* I guess that fact wasn't updated on his page hmm)
Since some utaite are very popular, there are many instances where they will be hired and debut as professional singers.
Personally I think it's a pretty smart idea on the company's part because they don't have to spend as much promoting a new singer; they already have an established fanbase after all.
Of course there are some utaite that are wildly popular but don't choose to take the path of a professional singer. Soraru for example.
Well technically, his major debut album, "Hello; World!" is not released yet, so he didn't debut as a professional yet :>
The record label is King Records. You can find Amatsuki's page on their website here.
Not quite, He has already done interviews and such as a professional singer and since the company has publicly announced that he is in contract I would consider him professional already. ( Though like BLUEBIRD said, his cd is just not for sale until July 16th )
If I recall correctly he said that he would still try to stay a utaite and upload covers and such even though he is professional now.
Yea, what Anon 2 said. He just didn't 'debut' yet. But he is already signed under King Records :> (It's basically just me splitting hair XD)
What do you think?
