About the Performance

Six-time GRAMMY Award-winner Daniel Ho is known for his sincere and enthusiastic performances on ukulele, slack key guitar, piano, and vocals.

From Honolulu and based in Los Angeles, Daniel studied composing and film scoring, and made his debut with the chart-topping contemporary jazz band, Kilauea.

His music is heard on film and television, and most notably, he sang the Hawaiian-language cover of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U in the movie, Forgetting Sarah Marshall. His achievements also include GRAMMY nominations for his solo albums on ukulele and piano, and recognition for his work with Taiwanese aboriginal tribes on the Golden Melody Award-winning albums, On a Gentle Island Breeze and To and From the Heart.

Daniel recently received his fourteenth GRAMMY Award nomination and a Golden Melody Award nomination for his world music album with Wu Man and Luis Conte, Our World In Song.
