Schatz Statement On The Passing Of Danny Kaleikini

HONOLULU – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement on the passing of singer and entertainer Danny Kaleikini.

“I join Hawai‘i in mourning the loss of a legend across the islands and beyond our shores. Danny was an extraordinarily talented, charismatic, joyful, and fearless performer who energized any stage he stepped on and warmed any heart he touched. He was the kind of person who made everyone who he interacted with feel special. He was a living embodiment of the aloha spirit, and we are all deeply sorrowful for this loss. I will miss his voice, his personal warmth, and his friendship. May he rest in peace and aloha.”
