Willie K...Hawaiian tenor

I had the awesome opportunity to hear Hawaiian musician and entertainer Willie K strum tonight at the Seattle Live Aloha Festival. I knew he was an awesome musician from hearing him on KBCS's Hawaii Radio Connection but WOW...I was even more impressed with Willie K in person. Hawaiian, jazz, rock, opera...you name it, Willie can do it. Apparently, Willie K's been spending a lot of time in Germany opening for Simply Red and one of the things he's picked up is a love for opera...with a touch of Hawaiian. That's right...check out "O Sole Mio" with ukulele below...



or how about "Nessun Dorma" with guitar opening the 2009 Hawaii Legislative session...



Willie K...you da man!
