Possible Piano Album for Matsui Sakiko?

My left arm's movement is restricted because of an injury, making typing quite difficult. Thus posts will come in slow these few days.

Recently, Matsui Sakiko participated in a piano competition on the television show TEPPEN, which she won with her piano cover of Every Little Thing's Time Goes By (120107 airing).

After the show was aired, Akimoto Yasushi posted on his Google+ that he was "seriously considering making a piano album" for her. He has also spoke about a possible Majisuka Gakuen 2 soundtrack, in which Sakiko will play the piano. Label Pony Canyon have expressed their interest in the album.

We don't know if Aki-P's plan will come to fruition, but I really hope it does. Sakiccho is a very talented girl and it would be sad to see her talent not fully utilized. A solo piano album would also help secure a future for her after AKB. But album or not, I wish that Sakiccho will have a successful career in piano in the future.

Sakiccho, who is currently attending the Tokyo College of Music, has shown off her piano skills a few times in the past. Most famously, she performed Chopin's Revolutionary √Čtude as the opening of the 3rd day of AKB48's Surprise wa Arimasen concert at Yoyogi National Gymnasium in 2010.
