Yesterday...the musical group HAPA joined us in studio to perform and asked our own Lacy Deniz if she would grace the stage and dance hula to the song "Ka 'Uluwehi O Ke Kai". She actually danced the song for the Hilo Jaycees Hula Competition at the Edith Kanaka'ole Tennis Stadium at the age of 8 years old. She said she was "so happy and honored" to dance with HAPA; to have danced with the live musicians whose CD she practiced to so long ago.
