“[Amy Hanaialiʻi’s] voice is rich and soulful. She turns song lyrics into stories that have you hanging on every word. She's a captivating entertainer...sexy, funny, as self-deprecating as she is powerful." — The Maui News
"[Pālehua is among the] best 50 songs ever written.” — Honolulu Magazine
Hawai’i’s top-selling female vocalist of all time, Amy Hanaiali'i is a major force for Hawaiian culture, bringing the ancient language to the world with a blend of diverse musical styles.
With 6 Grammy nominations for Best Hawaiian Music Album and Best Regional Roots Album, and 18 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards (Hawai‘i’s “Grammy”), including Song of Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Hawaiian Album of the Year, Amy is Hawai’i’s most respected and loved female vocalists, songwriters, and performers. She has performed for sold-out crowds in Europe, Japan, China, French Polynesia, and the U.S., and has played and recorded with some of the music industry’s biggest names.
Twenty-five years ago, Amy Hanaiali‘i and the late Uncle Willie K united on Pālehua, a beautiful mountain on O‘ahu, to write “Pālehua,” which became an instant classic, and in the 25 years since, is now one of the most celebrated songs in Hawai‘i.
