21 Candles for Minegishi Minami

The graduation song “Mata aeru hi made” of AKB48 founding member Minegishi Minami was released on YouTube on 9 March 2020. Minegishi Minami belonged to the founding members of the Japanese idol group AKB48 who together with 19 members (in total: 20 + Shinoda Mariko who joined shortly after) formed the first Team A. With an emotional video with the line up of the very first single “Sakura no Hanabiratachi” by AKB48 and symbolically with an empty chair with a candle each, the former members of the first Team A were remembered. With this video AKB48 says goodbye to Minegishi Minami the last  member of the first Team A who is leaving the group. The song is part of the 57th single of AKB48, which will be released on 18 March 2020.
