About Junko

Junko Nishiguchi Cheng grew up in Osaka, Japan, and is now based in Southern California. Starting out as a featured vocalists on NHK television in Tokyo during college, this bilingual singer's performances have since taken her all over California, Hawaii, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Peru, Paraguay, and Canada. She has shared the stage with artists such as Michael W. Smith, Mark Schultz, and Avalon and with speakers such as Pastor Rick Warren, John Townsend and Tony Campolo. Her songs have been featured on Worship Leader Magazine's SongDiscovery CD, and she is currently a worship leader at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA.

Junko is proud to be an Artist Associate with World Vision and has helped acquire over 1600 sponsors for children around the world. You're likely to find Junko leading worship at Saddleback Church or doing a family concert at churches and camps when she is not busy at home with her husband David and their children, Joshua and Megumi.

With her infectious smile and bubbly personality, Junko's concerts are sure to lift your spirits. She is available for kids' concerts, adults worship leading, and special music for women's events. She is also a popular speaker as she poignantly shares her struggles when she moved from Japan as a young girl to New York, not knowing the culture nor the language, but eventually meeting Christ. This story is told in her memoir, "From the Land of the Rising Sun: A Journey to Acceptance, Identity, and Belonging" from Redemption Press.

Junko recently released her 10th CD titled "Lavishing God," an album of hymns and worship songs in both English and Japanese. "God has been gracious in using a girl like me to spread the love of Christ through my music," says Junko.  "I am excited in this new season to reach my own people through these beloved hymns in their own language."
