On June 29, 2017, the GRAMMY Museum welcomed Henry Kapono for a conversation discussing his extraordinary career followed by a performance in the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater. Henry Kapono is a performer who has it all—vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, composer, thrilling performer, audience favorite—and multiple honors and awards, including a GRAMMY nomination. He has taken home numerous Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards (Hawai'i's premiere music award), including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Album & Rock Album of the Year. Kapono has always kept many different irons in the fire, from landing a multi-album Columbia Records deal in the '70s with the phenomenally popular duo, Cecilio & Kapono, to launching his successful solo career in the '80s, which produced 17 albums and fans around the world. In 2006, his groundbreaking "The Wild Hawaiian" collaborations fused the power of Hawaiian traditions with driving rock rhythms garnering him a GRAMMY nomination. In addition, Henry's two decades-strong legendary "Dukes on Sunday" LIVE and FACEBOOK LIVE afternoon concerts on Waikiki Beach became a destination spot for visitors and locals alike. His "Henry Kapono & Friends" ongoing concert series, which seamlessly pairs together Hawaii's top entertainers in fun and unique collaborations, has also been a big hit with locals and visitors. Meanwhile, Henry's company, Kapono Inc., even opened up a management company for talented young musicians in Hawaii.
