Didn't really know him for his music....he appeared a couple of times on Hawaii 5-0. Didn't realize he was so talented as a singer/song writer/performer.

Lani was married to my Aunt Betty. Lani was the coolest Uncle a kid could have! Godfather to my younger Brother Stephen, they shared the same Birthday of August 15.Our favorite song he sang to us 3 brats was called "Lani Makka". The Chorus went "Lani Maka, eyes of Heaven,Watch over you"-I don't know if he recorded that song, or if it was a Hawaiian /family song? He did some recording with Hilo records, in the late 70's as I remember a few 45's.
