**Crooner Update:

You all sure do know your Hawaiian music facts!  Wow!

The correct answer is C. Bridge Between Generations.

I thought this one might be tricky–Amy had recorded an album called HAWAIIAN TRADITION and the “feel” of that album is like she’s “bridging generations” of Hawaiian music–old and new.  I thought that might trip you all up.  But nope!  You are on it!  And yes… the album BRIDGE BETWEEN GENERATIONS was recorded by the one and only Darlene Ahuna. (Another favorite!)

This week’s winner, chosen randomly from all of the correct answers, is… (Drum roll, please…) LOUANNE PETERS!  Congrats, LouAnne!  That makes you this week’s Trivia Superstar!

A giant MAHALO to each of you for playing along this week and sharing your knowledge of Hawaiian music with me.  I hope you’ll play along next week, too!

(And if you have an idea for an ALOHA FRIDAY TRIVIA CHALLENGE question, please send it my way!)

May you all have an awesome weekend!

A hui hou…
