Elisa (born April 14, 1989) is a Japanese female singer and model from Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. She is signed to Geneon Universal Entertainment, not as a singer but as a model. She is also signed to Elite Model Management.
In 2007, Elisa was chosen from a contest of 3,000 participants at Elite Model Look to become a professional model. In the same year, she also signed up a contract to Geneon Universal to be a singer. In October 2007, she debuted with her single "Euphoric Field", which was used as the opening theme song for the anime series Ef: A Tale of Memories.
In 2011, it was announced by her agency that she would be putting her career on hold due to fatigue. Her concert that was scheduled for October 2 of that year at the Tokyo Globe-za theater, as well as all other scheduled concerts and events were cancelled, and her Twitter page was deleted. Despite her hiatus, she released a "best-of" album on June 20, 2012.
In January 2013, Elisa announced that she will resume her singing career under her new label, SME Records. She also opened a new Twitter account. She will release a new single titled "Shout my heart," which will be bundled with the 12th volume of LisAni magazine.
In April 2014, Elisa made her U.S. performance debut in Seattle, Washington at Sakura-Con.
