Tonight I met a professional ukulele performer and instructor, Jody Kamisato, who was inspired by young ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro, when he came to perform at Jody's school, Kaiser High in Hawaii Kai.
Jody's ukulele skills, comfortable manner, and positive attitude inspired me and many of our TV viewers as he helped PBS Hawaii with a pledge-of-support show featured a documentary about his mentor, Jake....
Jody ended our broadcast by showing how he trains his students at Ukulele Hale to warm up their playing fingers. And then we wowed everybody within hearing distance with his soulful instrumental rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
Thank you, Jody!
