Talk Story host McKenna Maduli connects virtually with Liahona and Ammon Olayan the sister-brother singing duo from Hawai’i that have recently received global attention for their breakthrough performance on ‘American Idol’. These two share with McKenna their story of humble beginnings and big dreams for the future with a surprise shout out from Josh Tatofi.

ABOUT: 18-year-old Ammon and 17-year-old Liahona found their passion for songwriting and music when their parents decided to quit their jobs and bring their 8 children to live in a tent on their native land in Hawaii. Without electricity, showers, TV or any form of entertainment, their father told them to go write a song. Now, five years later, the two are enjoying huge success and working on an album after their original song “Boom” debuted on ‘American Idol’ and went viral. Described as fresh and uncontrived by Lionel Richie, “absolute magic” by Luke Bryan, and compared to the likes of Lorde and Alessia Cara by Katy Perry, Ammon and Liahona have a very bright future ahead of them.
