    This caught my ear on the radio and came right home to look it up ~ this really touched deep in my heart. Mahalo for all the effort. I may not have Hawaiian ~ but born and raised here my heart is Hawaiian!

    This caught my ear as well, because I’ve heard this song sung beautifully before but this collaboration transcends!
