A Grammy-nominated artist and one of Hawai‘i’s most popular homegrown musicians will use his talents to honor veterans over the Thanksgiving Day weekend.

Henry Kapono will perform a free online concert in honor of veterans and military families on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 5 p.m. The concert can be seen via a Zoom link and will be simulcast on the AARP Hawai`i Facebook page.

“November is Veterans and Military Families Month, and AARP Hawai‘i is proud to work with the Hawai‘i Office of Veterans Services and the musical artist Henry Kapono to put on an event that will be safe for all of us to enjoy and celebrate the service of our veterans and their families,” said Keali`i Lopez, AARP Hawai‘i State Director.

Go to AARP.org/HI or the AARP Hawai‘i Facebook page and click on Upcoming Events to see all of AARP’s virtual offerings and to register and get a Zoom link for the free concert.

“While the concert celebrates veterans and their families, it is open to anyone. You don’t have to be an AARP member or veteran to participate,” said Ronald Han, the director of the Hawai‘i Office of Veterans Services. “We want to thank Henry Kapono, who also entertained troops during the Vietnam War, for his support of veterans and their families and making this concert possible.”
