- Japanese singer ZAQ is a prolific singer, lyricist, composer, and arranger who began studying piano at the age of three and grew up listening heavily to anime song or “anisong” music. She began working professionally writing music for other anisong singers before debuting herself - with the song “Sparkling Daydream”, the opening theme to Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, which broke into the Top 10 of Japan’s prestigious Oricon Music Chart. Since then, the versatile songstress has performed the themes to over 25 anime titles including Classroom of the Elite, Concrete Revolutio, Flip Flappers, Food Wars! The Third Plate, The Magnificent KOTOBUKI, Maria the Virgin Witch, Rail Wars, and Trinity Seven. ZAQ’s music is officially available globally via Apple Music and Spotify.
- Anime Diva Night at Anime Frontier will feature ZAQ and additional artists from Lantis for an evening dedicated to anisong favorites. The event will be set inside the Fort Worth Convention Center Arena, a historic venue which has been home to storied music acts including Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, and most recently BTS.
