“Friends for Maui” features a program of uplifting songs selected to inspire hope in the wake of the tragic Maui wildfire devastation, stirring audiences and singers alike. Diverse repertoire is united by a “hope for the future” mindset, conveyed through inspirational performances. The concert subtitle, ‘Starting All Over,’ is derived from the recent issued cover tune of Oahu-native American Idol winner Iam Tongi’s original song “Starting All Over Again,” a support anthem to raise awareness for the cause, the charities those in need, and to benefit Tongi’s greater Hawaiian community. Friends in Song performs its own arrangement of this tune during this concert. Together, we are stronger!
