Bryson created many duets with a bevy of talented women, including Natalie Cole, Roberta Flack, Melissa Manchester, Regina Belle, and Lea Solonga. His musical hits include If Ever You’re in My Arms Again, Can You Stop the Rain, Through the Fire, and Unconditional Love. In 1992 and 1993, Peabo Bryson won a Grammy Award for his performance of the song Beauty and the Beast with Celine Dion and A Whole New World, with Regina Belle.

The recognition marks Bryson’s first public appearance in Hawai‘i with a concert tonight at the Hawai‘i Convention Center. However, prior to the concert, Bryson treated members of the Senate and guests in the Senate Gallery to a short performance of A Whole New World on the Senate floor following his official recognition ceremony.
