Wada Kouji, most famous for preforming many of the Digimon franchise's most iconic songs, has just passed away from throat cancer.

I know that he's been sick for quite some time. However, last I heard I thought his throat cancer was in remission, he even started recording new albums again.

However, it seems his cancer came back...

He will be missed.

Edit:

If anyone has a favourite Wade Kouji song this thread would be a great place to share. His death is a tragedy but that's all the more reason to celebrate this work.

Personally, I've always been fond of 'Target' the OP song for Digimon Adventure 02:

This song will always be my favorite. Thanks for the memories.
さよなら
ありがとう

This is the last song of ButterFly before he past.
The song hasn't gone through any fixes of his voice. (純唱)
You can hear how he runs out of breath, but continues to sing will all his might.
