Don Ho was Hawaii’s Ambassador of Aloha to the world. A favorite son of Hawaii, he brought people together with his charismatic personality, Hawaiian values, and music. Don Ho is Hawaii’s icon and a personification of the Aloha Spirit.
He was big time. But to Don, it “ain’t no big thing.”
Whether a lifelong friend, an aspiring performer looking for a break, a grandmother from Peoria, or a member of the military, you mattered to Don Ho. In a one-on-one encounter or an appearance before hundreds on his stage, he made you feel special in his genuine “local boy” style.
There was so much more to Don Ho than “Tiny Bubbles” and “Pearly Shells.”
