Honolulu (KHON2) – Grammy-Nominated “Hawaiian Lullaby” Album Artists Kimie Miner, Imua Garza, Anuhea, & Kalani Pe’a celebrated at the Aloha Artists Reception at Santa Monica’s Hotel Shangri-la with an impromptu song off the album.
Kimie Miner and Imua Garza earned their first Grammy nomination as producers of the Haku Collective album, Hawaiian Lullaby, which features their artist friends including Anuhea, Kalani Pe’a, The Green, Josh Tatofi, Paula Fuga, Kapena, and more.
Kimie, Imua, Anuhea, and Kalani did an a capella version of Three Little Birds off of Hawaiian Lullaby, which was nominated as Best Regional Roots Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
It was the first nomination for friends and musical partners Kimie and Imua, who have been making music for 20 years, since their days at Kamehameha Schools with Anuhea.
Hotel Shangri-la created the perfect backdrop for the performance, with iconic Santa Monica in the background. Reminiscent of Hollywood’s Golden Age with its curving ocean liner-inspired architecture and whimsical Art Deco design, Hotel Shangri-La at the Ocean has been welcoming guests to the beach since 1939. Boasting one of the best locations in downtown Santa Monica, the hotel is walking distance to the beach, Santa Monica Pier and iconic restaurants. Life can be perfect at Shangri-La at the Ocean, the hotel you dream of discovering.
