HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Needing some help getting into the holiday spirit? Make a swing over to your nearest music store and pick up some or all of these releases and have them ready for the Thanksgiving weekend or to play in your car on the way to the mall on Friday:

Teresa Bright combined music from two previous holiday releases into one CD. Songs from "A Christmas Season's Delight" and "A Bright Hawaiian Christmas" are together with holiday classics and music of the season in the Hawaiian language.

'Iolani & Natalie Ai Kamauu; it's always been Natalieʻs name on the front of the CD, but for this holiday season it's husband and wife, which really fits since this is a family CD. Released on their own label, they have a nice collection of songs that are holiday, but not the usual holiday fare.

Barrett Awai remains part of the Na Hoku Hanohano Award Winning group Kaukahi; but he has also released a solo album which is Christian in nature, but could also be perfect for the holidays. Barrett also put pen to paper as he wrote 4 of the songs he recorded, some with the help of his wife Tara...also this was produced/Engineered by Imua Garza, previously from the Opihi Pickers, who has been doing lots behind the scenes with quite a few of our recording artists from Hawaii. "Kalana" is in stores now.
