Danny was raised in Papakolea, Hawaiian Homestead land. From these humble beginnings, he has risen to become a legend in the Hawaiian entertainment industry. He established the Danny Kaleikini Foundation and has given generously of his time to over 100 community organizations.
Kaniela (Hawaiian for Daniel) was officially proclaimed Hawaii’s Ambassador of Aloha by Governor John Waihee in 1988. Kaleikini wants aloha to be a part of everyone’s life.Danny’s message is: “Aloha ke kahi I ke kahi” (“Love is everywhere. Love is where you find it. It comes from the pu’uwai, the heart.”) Make Aloha a way of life. Be a part of the Aloha Spirit. Share the love.
