Shibata Ayumi, September 2002

1999Edit

Ayumi passed the second Morning Musume & Michiyo Heike Imōtobun Audition, out of about 4,000 total people to audition. The final four: Saito Hitomi, Murata Megumi, Ohtani Masae and Ayumi were chosen to form a new Hello! Project group, called Melon Kinenbi. She made her debut with Melon Kinenbi with them in 2000.

2002Edit

She joined Tanpopo in 2002 along with Konno Asami and Niigaki Risa as the third generation. The group went into an indefinite hiatus after releasing one single. (She and Konno Asami would later join Gatas Brilhantes H.P in 2003.)

2007Edit

From June 9-17, Shibata appeared in the stage play "Tokyo" alongside Maeda Yuki.[1]

From October 3-11, she appeared in the stage play "Heisei Revolution ~Back to the Byakkotai~" alongside Yoshizawa Hitomi, Satoda Mai, Inaba Atsuko, Korenaga Miki, and Fukuda Kanon.[2]

2008Edit

From June 18-22, Shibata participated in the Adult Barley Tea stage play "Nemurenaito 2008"[3].

From December 4-7, she appeared in the stage play "Lemon Star" alongside Yasuda Kei.[4]

2009Edit

On March 31, Shibata graduated with the rest of the Elder Club from H!P also along with all the other Melon Kinenbi members.

From April 23 to May 2, she appeared in the stage play "Mikoto Mannequin" alongside Yasuda Kei, Noto Arisa, and Miyoshi Erika.[5]

From August 5-9, she appeared in the stage play "Sukoshi Hanarete, Soko ni Ite" alongside fellow Melon Kinenbi member Otani Masae.[6]

2010Edit

On April 28, 2010, She announced that she was going to retire from the Gatas Brilhantes H.P. futsal team. It was just announced with a video from UFA’s Youtube account as well as a mention on the Gatas Brillhantes H.P. site.[1] And official left the group on May 10.

On May 3, 2010, Melon Kinenbi disbanded. She said she would be aiming on soloist activities and soon after opened up a Twitter account on May 5.

On July 14, 2010, It was announced on the UFA website that Ayumi left UFA and joined another agency titled Trick Function where she would be a solo singer.[2] Not long after joining the new agency she created a blog.

On November 21, 2010, Shibata Ayumi teamed up with another Melon Kinenbi member, Ohtani Masae, to make the mail order only photobook, “YOU&I.” The book contains original songs made by Shibata herself, and even came packaged with a CD recording of “YOU&I.” The event was held at Tokyo Shibuya's duo music exchange. Though the event was restricted to purchasers of her new photobook YOU&I, roughly 1,000 people attended the three performances. It had been six months since her last fan meeting as part of Melon Kinenbi, and there weren't enough seats for everyone, resulting in a venue packed full of people. Shibata performed her new song "YOU&I" (featuring self-written lyrics) for the first time at this event. Passing questionnaires out into the audience, she engaged the fans in an interactive talk and shared stories from her photobook shoot while a making video, prepared in advance for the event, played in the background.

"In the past two weeks, I've been constantly thinking about today. Like if anyone would come, or if I'd just be performing on an empty stage, and to be honest, I was feeling insecure wondering how many people would come to see me," she confessed. However, she went on, "I'm really glad I don't have to worry about that anymore. From now on I'll be positive and do my best, so everyone, please keep supporting me!"

Also announced at the event was the start of her new fan club, the official site for which will sell goods such as her photobooks, cell phone straps, posters, etc., as well as her own jewelry line "Lacoluce" planned to begin production in 2011. She will primarily be designing rings and necklaces for the brand.

2013Edit

On May 31, Ayumi's contract with Trick Function expired.

On November 18, it was announced that Ayumi will resume her activities in a new agency, SMC Entertainment, using the name "Shibata Ayumi" for her activities in entertainment, but she will start to use "ayumi shibata" for her activities as an artist. [3]

On November 20, it was announced that her first rock cover album kick start will be released on February 19, 2014. It was also announced that on February 22, Ayumi will hold a solo live entitled "ayumi shibata live 2014~kick start ~ B.D SPECIAL".

2016Edit

On January 26, Shibata announced that she had married Minami Masaki, a professional Baseball player for the Chiba Lotte Marines. With this announcement, it was also stated that she would be suspending activities following the conclusion of a live event on March 4.[7]
