In 2015 and 2016 Kingdom Hearts ranked at #30 and #31 respectively, although it unfortunately slipped in 2017 to #119. Let’s not let that happen again! Vote for Yoko Shimomura before her return in Kingdom Hearts III, and show her how much we appreciate her contribution to the series.
These past few years have been especially busy for Yoko Shimomura with the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra- World Tour-, which has recently had a new tour announced for this 2018 and 2019.

UPDATE [Mar 6, 2018]: It seems that there is a problem in the system and only entries with UK postcodes are being accepted at the moment. We believe this is due to the accompanying "Vikings Cruise" competition which is only available to UK residents. We have contacted Classic FM regarding this issue.
