We’ve heard a lot of very appreciative comments about the terrific a cappella rendition of the National Anthem on Sunday at the 24th annual Memorial Day Service at the Waikiki War Memorial Natatorium.It was definitely a winner.
Lots of you said you’d love to hear hear it again. And fortunately, an audience member captured the moment on video.
Mahalo to our soloist, college student Emma Benjamin of Honolulu, for kicking off our patriotic celebration with such an outstanding performance of America’s most patriotic song. Everyone in attendance loved it; you provided a fitting tribute to the men and women of our armed forces whose lives — and sacrificial deaths — we came together on Sunday to commemorate.
