Jumbo Tsuruta's musical career


Recommended Posts

The following is translated from a column in the March 1978 issue of Monthly Puroresu.


Charity concert featuring Tsuruta and other vocalists

Whenever he had free time during his regional tours, he would visit nursing homes and other places of comfort. Despite his appearance, Jumbo Tsuruta has a strong spirit of volunteerism. On March 1, he will hold a charity concert at the "Ruido" restaurant in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Last September, Tsuruta held a "Songs for Young People" charity concert. This will be the second time he has held such an event, but this time it will not be just for his friends. This time, he would like to invite professional singers and hold a joint concert with them.

Of course, when he says "invite professional singers as guests", he doesn't mean popular celebrities such as Mr. Hiroshi Itsuki, Ms. Yoshiko or Ms. Momoe [Yamaguchi].

When he says, "I can only sing folk songs, and I would like a folk singer as a guest singer," it seems that he has been considering Sakura Kono, who is a longtime fan of Tsuruta himself and also sings folk songs.

He also said that he would like Baba to sing a song at the event, and all the young wrestlers of All Japan Pro, including Onita and Sonoda, are scheduled to appear on stage. About 20 disabled boy fans will be invited to the event, and they will sing for about two hours, so please cheer them on, dear readers.
