Ai Kawashima's father was missing before she was born, and her mother died when she was just three years old. She was adopted by Kawashima's family as an adopted daughter after she spent some time in an orphanage. She learned how to play the piano when she was only 3 years old. In 1999, she debuted as an Enka singer, however, it wasn't a hit. In 2002, they started a life on the road by singing with their own electric piano as a companiment. In 2005, March 24th, they dissolved "I WISH," because they want to concentrate on solo activity. But in 2008, they resolved one more time for a last single together.
