Long Story Short – Marlene Sai – Hawaiian “Diva” – Part One

Only a few working female vocalists in Hawaii have achieved “diva” status.  Marlene Sai is one of them.  In the first part of a two-part series, Marlene Sai talks about being mentored by her uncle, Andy Cummings – legendary Hawaiian music pioneer and composer of the iconic song “Waikiki.”  Sai also talks about being discovered by Don Ho while she was still a junior in high school, and the golden age of Hawaiian music in Waikiki.
