Henry Kapono Establishes Henry Kapono Foundation

Grammy nominated and award-winning entertainer Henry Kapono today announced the establishment of the Henry Kapono Foundation (HKF). After a lifetime of support for local causes, Henry has created an organization whose mission is “to support and strengthen our community through music and the arts, and by giving with Aloha.” The HKF will support local communities with a primary focus on local arts, culture and music.

“I am truly grateful for the love and support I’ve had through the years. And even more grateful that I can give back to Hawai`i and future generations, I am truly blessed. Mahalo!” Henry Kapono

The first project for the HKF is “The Songs of C&K” Recording Project, being produced in partnership with First Hawaiian Bank. “The Songs of C&K” music release will be available in CD with digital download, and in vinyl format, available for sale exclusively at First Hawaiian Bank branches throughout Hawai`i, Guam and Saipan in July 2018, with the net proceeds benefiting the HKF.

First Hawaiian Bank has a long tradition of supporting the Arts and Culture in the community including the creation of a special art gallery by The Honolulu Museum of Art inside its downtown Main Banking Center featuring rotating exhibits which are free and open to the public. The partnership with the Henry Kapono Foundation is another way the bank is continuing this tradition of supporting the arts through music.

“This unique opportunity to partner with Henry Kapono came about as we were looking for a special way to celebrate our bank’s 160th anniversary this year,” said Bob Harrison, First Hawaiian Bank chairman and CEO. “Through this CD and the concert we are helping to showcase the incredible depth of talent that we have in Hawai`i. These ten artists singing their favorite C&K songs will create timeless classics for a whole new generation to enjoy. We are pleased to also be presenting the concert in support of Henry and the many musicians joining him.”
