Miwa Yoshida (吉田 美和, Yoshida Miwa?, born 6 May 1965 in Ikeda, Hokkaido) is a Japanese musician, and the lead singer for the band Dreams Come True.

Yoshida also fronts a Dreams Come True side-project called "Funk the Peanuts", and has released two solo albums, Beauty and Harmony and Beauty and Harmony 2. Both albums took their name from the English translation of the name Miwa.

Life and music career[edit]

In 2004, Yoshida married videographer Ken Sueda, who had shot several of Dreams Come True's Wonderland concert videos. Sueda died in 2007 of brain cancer, and it came out at the time that the marriage was never officially recorded.[1]

In March 2012, she announced that she had married Juon Kamata, the lead singer of the Japanese rock band Fuzzy Control.[2]
