Ho, Don
▪ 2008
Donald Tai Loy Ho 
      American singer

born Aug. 13, 1930 , Honolulu, Hawaii

died April 14, 2007, Honolulu
became an icon of the relaxed Hawaiian lifestyle with his rich baritone interpretations of such songs as “I'll Remember You,” “With All My Love,” “The Hawaiian Wedding Song,” “Pearly Shells,” “Hanalei Moon,” “Kanaka Wai Wai,” and especially “Tiny Bubbles,” a hit single in 1967 that became his signature tune. Ho began performing at his father's bar but soon found a following in the 1960s among tourists in Waikiki nightclubs and later at the Coconut Grove in Hollywood and the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. His success on the mainland sparked the TV variety program The Don Ho Show (1976–77), but he remained indelibly identified as a national spokesperson for Pacific Island leisure. Ho continued to perform until two days before his death.
