AI & Watanabe Naomi to sing the theme song for TBS Summer 2017 drama "Kanna-san!"

AI and Watanabe Naomi will be singing the theme song for TBS Summer 2017 drama "Kanna-san!" starring Watanabe which will be shown from 18 July in the Tuesdays 10pm timeslot. The song titled "Kira Kira feat. Kanna" was written by AI with the intention of singing with Watanabe after the drama's producer approached AI with the offer after she and Watanabe performed together on stage for the first time in May this year. AI described the theme song as a support song for both men and women to continue fighting on and not give up when faced with difficulties.

The drama is based on the same-titled manga by Fukaya Kahoru serialised in manga magazine "YOU" between 2001 and 2007 and features Watanabe as a fashion designer Kanna. Although she has a handsome husband Rei, Kanna discovers that he is having an affair and she also has to cope with her difficult mother-in-law. At work, she is bullied by her unreasonable boss. Despite these daily challenges in life, Kanna tries her best to live positively for the sake of her beloved son Reon.
