Tahiti Rey joining us in studio to talk more... Describe your passion for music and where you get inspiration. My passion for music started from my love for watching my father, Augie Rey, perform as a child. The way he connected with people always moved me. Bringing a smile, laughter, and sometime tears to peoples hearts is what I love the most about music. Giving people permission to feel and moving them to that emotion through music is why I love what I do so deeply. What is your schedule for upcoming shows? I perform all over town, The Modern twice a week, Manifest, Tikis, Dukes, and always at least 1 or 2 WEDDINGS a week. Describe your involvement with community organizations. I am connected with 2 organizations that I am deeply committed to supporting, both involving children. Make 'Um Smile, where I sing hospital door to door for children at Kapiolani/Shrine rs Hospitals bringing a bit of music and joy to their very painful and precious lives. The other is the ARIA Foundation that I wrote a theme song for the foundation and once recorded, all profits will benefit their organization that brings clean water to impoverished countries and helps rescue children who are victims of Child Trafficking.
