All Of A Sudden My Heart Sings

To commemorate my final performance on Shindig which aired 11-20-65, I’m celebrating this November Full Moon by sliding into the original Hawaiian Holoku I wore on that occasion. You’ll see behind me in the vintage video a view of Waikiki, my home for 7-years. In the distance, the landmark Royal Hawaiian Hotel in all its pink glory, conjures up aromas of pineapple, coconut and mai tais with little umbrellas as well as salty ocean breezes and Duke Kahanamoku.

The show was filmed at Magic Island on the Island of Oahu in Hawaii and was one of the few times myself or anyone else didn’t sing live on the show.

    That dress looks as good on you now as it did then, if not better. Like Hawaii your beauty is timeless.
