Becky (Japanese: ベッキー), full name undisclosed, commonly referred to as BECKY, is a Japanese television presenter and tarento. She was born in the Kanagawa Prefecture, Kantō, Japan to an English father and a Japanese mother.
She is under contract with the Japanese entertainment company Sun Music Productions, the core entertainment office of Sun Music Group, which is a Japanese entertainment office and talent agency. From 2009, she began a career in music and is commonly referred to under the name "Becky♪♯" (ベッキー♪♯) with the eighth note and sharp representing "a different half of Becky stepping up". 
Becky first debuted as a regular on the Japanese TV program Oha Suta: The Super Kids Station in 1999, where she would read out the names of various Pokémon characters. She has since became popular in various different areas. For example, she acted as a voice actress for the Japanese version of the Pokémon anime, and made an appearance with the PokéPark Kids on Pokémon Sunday. She also voiced Dixie Kong in the Donkey Kong Country TV series, and promoted the Crayon Shin-chan anime and manga.
An album called Densetsu no Starfy c/w Boyfriend's Rookie, was later produced as part of a series of merchandise officially endorsed by Nintendo and TOSE. It includes Becky's previous rendition of the Title Song (listed as "Densetsu no Starfy") in full (including a version with lyrics and a karaoke version), and an original song made by Becky, known as "Boyfriend's Rookie". The CD was advertised in a music video on Oha Suta, featuring Becky dancing to the Title Song theme near Pufftop. Starfy is seen in various scenes with Becky.
On December 12, 2003, Becky's version of the Title Song, complete with lyrics appeared as a song called "Densetsu no Starfy" in the Japanese version of Donkey Konga.
