Welcome back in blog Biografia DVD with Hiromi Hayakawa (born Marla Hiromi Hayakawa Salas on October 19, 1982 Fukuoka, Japan) is a Mexican singer who began her music career as a contestant in the reality show La Academia. Her name, Hiromi, means "great beauty" in Japanese.
She is the daughter of Alfonso Javier Hayakawa, who is of Japanese descent and a native of Torreón, Coahuila, and Lourdes Elsa Salas, from the city of Chihuahua. Her parents resided in Fukuoka for the reason being that her father studied Industrial Engineering there. They returned to Mexico when Hiromi was only two years old, and at the time, her mother was pregnant with her second child, Kaori, Japanese word for "perfume".
When she attended a casting call for La Academia, Hiromi scored 9.7 points out of a possible ten points. Though, before competing in La Academia, Hiromi studied Industrial Engineering and Systems in ITESM, Coahuila. She decided to attend the casting for La Academia because, like most people who attend the castings, she saw it as a chance of pursuing a musical career.
Hiromi left La Academia after the thirteenth concert; though she was later re-cast and became the sixth runner-up as the winner. The last song she sang as an official contestant was "La Playa" by La Oreja de Van Gogh. Two weeks after her expulsion she was given the opportunity to return to La Academia and become a finalist. Hiromi and another two ex-students (Ricardo Hernández Quiñones and Dulce Lopez Rodriguez) were given a song which they had to perform in the next concert. The public would then vote on who they wanted to return to the finale instead of voting on who was going to be expelled. In the end Dulce Lopez Rodriguez won and went to the finale where she won 2nd place. One of the judges, Lolita Cortez, was very disappointed in the results.
