Amy returns home to where she began her musical career at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua. Her world class musical show has evolved since she began and will take you on a journey of her family's story and roots as cultural performers across the globe.
From the 1930s in Waikiki, to the 1940s in New York City at Hawaiian Room...to the 1950s and 1960s in the glimmering luxury of the Las Vegas strip and the Silver Screen in Hollywood to the present sultry vocals of Blues, Jazz, Pop and Hawaiian.
Amy officially named by the governor as Ambassador of Hawaiian Music, will give you a glimpse of how Hawaiians bring Aloha to the world's most prominent stages.
Amy's Grandmother Jennie Napua Hānaiali`i Woodd was one of the original hula dancers at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki in the 1930's.
She was asked to perform and choreograph Ray Kinney's show in New York City at the Lexington Hotel. The show room was called "Hawaiian Room".
This show was so successful it lasted 60 years and was sold out 7 days a week. Every major celebrity graced this incredible room, Marlon Brando, Katherine Hepburn, Billie Holiday just to name a few. With the room being an instant hit, it helped with opening the famous "Rainbow Room", the "Cotton Club" and the "Red Rooster" in Harlem.
It was ultimate class and everyone wanted to be seen in the Hawaiian Room.
This room is a tribute to Amy's grandmother Napua and all of the Hawaiian Performers who bring Aloha to you.
