ReoNa (born October 20, 1998) is a Japanese singer from Kagoshima. Between elementary and high school, she became interested in cosplaying after a classmate recommended the art to her. After ordering a costume of 初音ミク, her interest became stronger and she decided to go by Reopeko (れおぺこ) and ReoNa* while attending Comiket and similar events. She also had a dream of becoming an anison and uploaded her own covers of such songs to YouTube.
In 2017, ReoNa became a finalist in an audition held by SACRA MUSIC, a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc. established in April of the same year which specializes in anime music. She earned a contract with the label and debuted the following year as the singing voice of the character 神崎エルザ in the anime series Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online. She released the song ピルグリム on April 25, 2018, which topped iTunes Japan's anime singles chart as well as Amazon Japan's digital music rankings. This was followed by the release of two more songs featured in the anime series: step, step and Independence. These singles would be featured on the mini album ELZA, released on July 4, 2018. It peaked at No. 8 on the Oricon weekly charts.
ReoNa's debut single under her own name is SWEET HURT, released on August 29, 2018. The title track was used as the ending theme to the anime series Happy Sugar Life. Her second single is forget-me-not, released on February 6, 2019. It was used as the ending theme to the second half of the anime series Sword Art Online: Alicization, and also featured 虹の彼方に, used as the ending song for the season's 19th episode. ReoNa's fourth single ANIMA was released on July 22, 2020, and used as the opening theme for the second season of Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld. It is her highest charting single yet, peaking at No. 4 on the Oricon chart and No. 16 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100 chart.
ReoNa released her first album unknown on October 7, 2020.
