You Can Do It If You Try/Nandemo Dekiru (なんでもできる) - Alvin "Pops" Okami
Earlier tonight, I was fortunate enough to be invited to an event called "KoAloha Mai", a live webcast of local artists (like Herb Ohta, Jr., David Kamakahi, Jon Yamasato, Manoa DNA, & Pali), hosted and streamed out from KoAloha Ukulele Factory via Channel808.tv. One of the treats of the night was when Alvin "Pops" Okami performed "You Can Do It If You Try/Nandemo Dekiru" a song he selflessly dedicated to the people of Japan who are currently suffering due to the tragic earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Here's the performance that literally gave me chicken skin! For more information about the song and to find out how you can help, visit KoAloha's Nippon Relief page here!
