MUSIC: 3rd Grammy Nomination for Daniel Ho Creations

Do you know anyone that’s ever won a world-reknown award?  I know a really nice guy who owns a record label that’s won not one but TWO GRAMMY awards. 

TWO-TIME GRAMMY AWARD WINNER
Daniel Ho, the owner and producer for Daniel Ho Creations, is a singer, songwriter, and producer.  He’s a very talented performer in his own right, but something he’s done that very few people in the world has, is he’s produced two GRAMMY award-winning albums on his own record label. 

"BEST HAWAIIAN MUSIC ALBUM"
The first was in 2006 when he produced "Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Vol. 1" and the album won "Best Hawaiian Music Album" in the 48th annual GRAMMY awards.  The second was in 2007 when he produced "Legends of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar" which won "Best Hawaiian Music Album" in the 49th annual GRAMMY awards.

THIRD NOMINATION IN THREE YEARS
And now he and his company’s up for a THIRD award with not one, but two nominations this year.  The following two albums are nominated for GRAMMY awards in the category of "Best Hawaiian Music Album":

Treasures of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar

The first is a compilation album like the first two Grammy award winners he produced.  Featuring the talent of George Kahumoku, Jr., Ledward Kaapana, Dennis Kamakahi, Cyril Pahinui, Martin Pahinui, Owana Salazar, Keoki Kahumoku, Daniel Ho, Richard Ho‘opi‘i, Bobby Ingano, Da ‘Ukulele Boyz, and Sterling Seaton, it bears some similarity to "Legends of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar", packing even more talent on the disc than ever before while managing to articulate the soul of Hawaii Slack Key even more eloquently than before.

Hawaiiana 

The second is of a very different sort in that it’s performed entirely by singer & actress Tia Carrere.  Tia performs exactly what the title reads:  Hawaiiana… some of Hawaii’s most beloved music, including Aloha ‘Oe & He Aloha Mele.  Her dreamily beautiful & emotional rendition of Aloha ‘Oe almost compels a tear from one’s eye.

THE REQUEST FOR CONSIDERATION
So if any one reading this is a a member of NARAS or knows someone that is, might they please consider voting for one of these two albums for the GRAMMY category of "Best Hawaiian Music Album"?
