It's Jero, an American enka singer in Japan. Enka is an older style of popular Japanese music.

He is extremely popular these days, selling lots of CDs. I have known of him for a while but never knew he was from Pittsburgh until I watched this video this morning. I am in the process of compiling a JPop database.

He is known for wearing Yankees caps. Aaaaaargh!

Here's Jero singing with legendary enka singer Hiroshi Itsuki, followed by a performance of his own big hit 海雪 (umiyuki or ocean snow) which came out last year:
