Henry Kapono Ka’aihue is an award winning and Grammy nominated singer/songwriter. He has taken home numerous Na Hoku Hano Hano Awards (Hawaii’s equivalent of the Grammy’s) including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Album of the Year. He is also the author of the award winning children’s book, A Beautiful Hawaiian Day, has appeared in the films, Damien and Waterworld and has made many television appearances. Known as “Kapono”, the Hawaiian word for righteous, Henry was christened “Henry Kapono Hosea Ka’aihue” and is a pure Hawaiian born and raised in Kapahulu, a small town located just outside Waikiki, Hawaii.

Although Henry has had no formal musical training, he started singing in a children’s church choir at the young age of 5. “I was, and still am, a very shy person, but I loved singing especially in a choral situation,” says Henry. “My Dad taught me how to play the ukulele. He would come home from work and sit in his easy chair and play the coolest stuff. I saw a friend of mine play a guitar one day and fell in love with the sound of it. He taught me a few chords and I’ve been hooked ever since. After that, I taught myself how to play by listening to records, radio and watching other guitarists play.”

    My mother’s birthday id January 25th. She always stays home and I think itd be great to get her out for her birthday. It would be a great gift to a mother of 6 who is always giving to her children and putting herself on the back burner.

    Because the music would be so fine! and would transport me and my man back to the beaches of Hawaii where the sun is warm and the breezes soft. It would be perfect for this cold January.

    Hawaii is my happy place and my soul is with the people, their lifestyle and most of all their music. It would be spectacular to spend an evening listening to Kapono Ka’aihue and give me some peace in my heart.

    I lived on Oahu for 5 years and never saw Henry Kapono in person – what a mistake. I’d like to make up for that.

  26. John Potts January 19, 2017 at 3:31 pm #

    I love the Aladdin, love live music, love acoustic instruments, and love the Hawaiian flavor and ethos as applied to music. Win, win, win, win! … If I win ;)
