Aloha Willie K - You Will Be Missed

Today we bid a fond Aloha to Willie K, a phenomenal Maui musician and musical genius and painter who brightened our lives. He took us on journeys, made us laugh, made us proud as he represented Maui and Hawaii to the world, constantly kept us in awe with his creativity and talent (that encompassed most, if not all, musical genres and included an out of this world rendition of Louis Armstrong) and whose spirit and will kept him performing through his long battle with cancer to the end. Aloha and mahalo Willie K for sharing your life with us. You will remain with us, always. We send Aloha and blessings to your family for this tremendous loss and encourage all to bust out your Willie K CDs and celebrate his life. If you are not familiar with the infectious and infamous Willie K, learn about this remarkable man, his incredible talent and hear his music at williek.com.
