From a young age, Kamaehu was inspired by the Hoʻopiʻi Brothers, Uncle Richard & Solomon Hoʻopiʻi, to sing Hawaiian Music. His favorite memories as a child was watching his Aunty Hoʻomanawanui perform and listening to her sing Hawaiian Music, which motivated him to follow into her footsetps and sing Hawaiian Music as well. Kamaehu is proud to be a young Hawaiian musician and is dedicated to keeping the Hawaiian music, language, and culture alive.
