University of Hawaii Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple, three board of regents members and Rich Sheriff, manager of the Stan Sheriff Center, testified before a Senate committee about the Stevie Wonder concert controversy Tuesday.
This is the second hearing into UH's botched plans for a Stevie Wonder concert that led to the school losing $200,000 in a fraudulent wire transfer.
The concert never happened because Stevie Wonder and his representatives never authorized the show.
