HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's time for our Summer Concert Series to kick off. We begin with the powerful and beautiful voice of Raiatea Helm. The Molokai native has a new album out called "He Leo Huali". Helm has been playing Hawaiian music for 15 years. She said that this "is a tribute to those who have opened the many doors for us. And it's really digging deeper to the composer and the stories that I got to learn. You know, because I am older, I listen better. We all do."
Joining her for her performances on Sunrise are Bryan Tolentino on ukulele and Sonny Kalua on guitar.
Look for performances from Raitea Helm this summer at multiple venues including The Honolulu Zoo, Moanalua Gardens, Waikiki Aquarium and Waimea Valley.
