"I hope this song will reach your hearts as well."
The official YouTube channel for the cover song project "CrosSing" has started streaming its fifth performance video, "Inochi no Namae (The Name of Life)" (Spirited Away theme song) sung by voice actress Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackerman in Attack on Titan). The song, composed by the film's soundtrack composer, Joe Hisaishi, was originally sung by Yumi Kimura and released as her first single in July 2001.
Ishikawa says in a message video, "It is a very nice song, but also a simple song that you can't cheat. So I sang it carefully with all my heart. I hope this song will reach your hearts as well."
