Shingo Katori (香取 慎吾 Katori Shingo?, born 31 January 1977) is a Japanese actor and singer. He is a member of the boy band SMAP.


Katori was also once well known for cross-dressing as the character Shingo Mama (慎吾ママ?) on the variety show Sata Suma; he even released a top-selling CD single "Shingo Mama no Oha Rock" (慎吾ママのおはロック?), done in character. Shingo Mama's trademark phrase was "Ohhā!" (morning!). From 2000-2001, Shingo Mama promoted the use of Ohha as part of a Ministry of Education campaign to encourage family communication.[1]
