HONOLULU (KHNL) - Festive music will fill the air at the Toys for Tots holiday concert in Honolulu Wednesday night.
Guest artist Jake Shimabukuro rehearsed with the Marine Forces Pacific Band at the Blaisdell Concert Hall Wednesday afternoon. Danny Kaleikini, Jasmine Trias, Chris Vandercook and the Honolulu Boy Choir are also scheduled to perform.
Marines will be on hand to accept donations of toys for Hawaii's less fortunate keiki.
"With all what's happening in the world today and, you know, I can honestly say I've been around the world and I've seen the world and we've got to malama, take care of our family, our ohana," Kaleikini said.
Toys for Tots organizers say they're halfway to their goal of 40,000 toys.
