Raiatea Helm in Concert

What a privilege I had this weekend to be at Raiatea Helm's 25th Birthday concert at the Hawaii Theater in Oahu. This young gal, from Molokai, will be one of Hawaii's music legends. Her ability to capture the essence of old Hawaii in her purely captivating Hawaiian falsetto, the likes of Lena Machado and Genoa Keawe, is a sound our young Hawaii generation has been missing out on. She will be the bridge that connects Hawaii past to Hawaii future. Be on the look out for this up and coming star!! And how did we get to go to this "by invitation only" concert? Her mom, Etta, is our high school classmate, hailing from Waimea High school, Class of 1977!!

If she's ever your way, don't miss the chance to hear her!! You will not be disappointed!!
