“Na Leo celebrating 40 years of music at WCC is going to be fantastic! We will have multiple generations coming together on stage to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to learn, perform, and create Hawaiian music because of this scholarship!” said Kimokeo.

In 1984, Na Leo won the Brown Bags to Stardom contest with the song “Local Boys,” which launched the group’s career. Nalani Jenkins, Lehua Kalima and Angela Morales have written, recorded and performed more than 20 #1 hits and received 23 Na Hōkū Hanohano Awards with songs like “I Miss You My Hawaiʻi” and “Flying with Angels.” They are the biggest selling female Hawaiian band in the world, and continue to perform to sold out crowds in Japan, Hawaiʻi, and the U.S. continent.
