You Can Do It If You Try/Nandemo Dekiru (ใชใ‚“ใงใ‚‚ใงใใ‚‹) – Alvin “Pops” Okami
Earlier tonight, I was fortunate enough to be invited to an event called “KoAloha Mai”, a live webcast of local artists (like Herb Ohta, Jr., David Kamakahi, Jon Yamasato, Manoa DNA, & Pali), hosted and streamed out from KoAloha Ukulele Factory via Channel808.tv. One of the treats of the night was when Alvin “Pops” Okami performed “You Can Do It If You Try/Nandemo Dekiru” a song he selflessly dedicated to the people of Japan who are currently suffering due to the tragic earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Here’s the performance that literally gave me chicken skin! For more information about the song and to find out how you can help, visit KoAloha’s Nippon Relief page here!

Upcoming Events to Help Japan

April 4, 2011

As some of you may know, my parents had just landed in Japan and were en route to their hotel when the massive earthquake occurred last month. All of my immediate family members also call Japan their home. Needless to say, any time anyone is doing anything to help those victims of the tragedy, I am all for it. Below are a few upcoming events happening locally that are doing their part to help. Please support if/where you can. Much love!

Helluva Rides “Nippon O Sukuou” Kokua for Japan Charity Car Show

Helluva Rides Nippon O Sukuou Kokua for Japan Charity Car Show

Some of you may know & recogmatize “bB” as a commenter on this blog. Well, on a recent trip to Maui, bruddah generously gave me a bunch of mangoes from his yard. So giving yeah!? During our brief conversation, he mentioned this event that he was helping to put together for the racing/car community to rally around and I was like “Send da info ova so I can post um up!” So here it is! His event is on Sunday, April 17th in Kapolei at Podium Raceway (91-1085 Lexington St – Bldg 1844) from 10am-3pm. With each $10 donation, you will get Nippon O Sukuou stickers, which translates to “Let’s Help Japan”. For more information, check out their Facebook events page here.

Heart & Soul Live Aloha Benefit Concert

Heart & Soul Live Aloha Benefit Concert

My friend and old Kaiser High School schoolmate Jody Kamisato is part of a band named Heart & Soul who has performed numerous times in Japan. They are in the beginning stages of planning a concert to help benefit Japan. Why? In Jody’s words, “Japan has been so good to me… Need to give back & share the ALOHA!” I don’t really have a lot of info about the concert yet, but you can follow their progress for the concert on their Facebook Fan Page here.

Of course, you can also donate to the American Red Cross directly here or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Shoots den! Have a great week y’all!
