    In 2015, Ho‘okena was invited to sing and arrange backup vocals for country music star, Josh Turner. The song, “My Hawaiian Girl”, was written by Turner for his latest CD “Deep South” and was released in March 2017. In May 2021, they were asked again by Josh to sing on an island Christmas song entitled “Mele Kalikimaka My ʻOhana” that he penned and released in December 2021.

    Whether playing for thousands of concertgoers at such venues as Carnegie Hall in NYC, an intimate gathering or a practice jam session, the musicians of Ho‘okena continue to share their love of Hawaiian music with their fans.
