The City and KRATER Radio Sponsor Entertainment  

 

          A special tribute to the Aloha Festivals and the Royal Court will be part of tonight’s Downtown Hoolaulea.

Last weekend, the performance of “Give Aloha” by 70 entertainers, emergency services personnel and Boy Scouts was videotaped and sent as a gift to the people of New York from the people of Hawaii.

 

          Joining Jesse tonight to sing “Give Aloha” will be Amy Haanaialii Gillom, Ernie Cruz Jr., Maunalua, Kelly “Boy” Kalima of Kapena, Jeff Rassmussen and other musical greats.

 

          Media interested in covering the singing of “Give Aloha” live should contact Carol Costa at 523-4834. The estimated time for the performance is 6:13 p.m. on Stage #6 at Tamarind Park

 

          Entertainment on the City stage will continue throughout the evening and will feature Kalapana, Honolulu, The Band, Halau Hula Olana and SUGahDADDY.

 

          NOTE: Station dubs of the “Give Aloha” performance to the Royal Court will also be dropped off at all stations before the

10 p.m. newscast tonight.
