About me: Kaga Kaede (加賀楓) is a Japanese pop singer and idol managed by Up-Front Promotion and part of Hello! Project. She is a thirteenth generation member of Morning Musume.
Kaga Kaede first appeared as a participant in the Morning Musume 11th Generation ~Suppin Utahime~ Audition in the summer of 2012, but failed to become a finalist. She later passed a separate audition and became a member of the Hello Pro Kenshuusei in November, and was later officially introduced at the December "Hello Pro Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2012 ~12gatsu no Nama Tamago Show!~" concert on December 9, 2012.
After the lack of finalists in the first run and second re-run of the Morning Musume 13th Generation audition, it was announced that the winners would be chosen from the Hello Pro Kenshuusei. Kaga was revealed as one of two winners of the Morning Musume 13th Generation Shinseiki Audition on December 12, 2016, alongside fellow Hello Pro Kenshuusei member Yokoyama Reina, in an announcement at Nippon Budokan during the last performance of the Morning Musume fall tour.
