An Evening With Mike Keale w/ Special Guests Ka'amea
"Whatchu waiting fo'?"
The words still ring in Michael's ears to this day. In his own way, Michael's uncle, Moe Keale, was saying, "the world needs to hear the gift of your voice and experience your aloha". Until recently, Michael never looked upon those qualities as gifts; singing with his heart was just something that he had always done.
Growing up in Kailua, O'ahu during the late 1950's,
Michael and his siblings were serenaded by his mother,
Maria, every spare minute she could sing to them.
Songs like "Fools Rush In", "Baby Kalai", "God Bless My
Daddy", and "Pua Carnation" tied the family together.
Michael states that his mother was the most influential
person in his life, musically and otherwise.
Michael's debut album Remember was released in July, 2010. Featuring Michael's crooning, silken bass vocals, Remember received positive response from fans for its mix of music from Hawai'i's past and present. Songs like "'Ahulili", and "Kamalani O Keaukaha", as well as traditional English
standards such as "Waikīkī" and "The Way You Look Tonight", earned Michael two prestigious Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award Nominations in 2011 for "Island Album of the Year", and "Most Promising Artist".
Michael has entertained at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and Marriott's Moana Terrace, where Aunty Genoa Keawe herself entertained people from all over the world. He has shared the stage with his cousins Iz and Skippy, Uncle Moe Keale, Uncle Willie 'K', Melveen Leed, Martin Pahinui, Mike Kaawa,
Ocean Kaowili, George Kuo, Mel Amina, Analu Aina, Bobby Ingano, Aaron Mahi and many more. Michael continues to share his aloha, capturing the hearts and souls of visitors and kama'āina alike at the Kaua'i Coast Resort's Hukilau Lānai, and Hanalei's Tahiti Nui Lounge.
