So just ran over this on a couple of the forum I frequent and thought it was noteworthy enough to post about.

It seems that he is mostly black, but his grandmother was Japanese. He is also completely fluent, if you coudn’t already tell from his singing. Really amazing voice and I think it could be really good for enka in general. I have never been interested in it before, but always held a kind of respect for it. Maybe this will cause more interest in the musical form among the younger Japanese generation.
