    Heh...I hit submit before finishing my post. It's been a long day!

    Anyway...the performer was local gal, Tani Lynn Fujimoto, singing Alicia Key's "Fallin". I think I referenced this in an earlier post. Tani is another youngster (altho' now 18) who sings from the pit of her soul, way beyond her years. And, she's an old soul to boot! She said her grandmother and I tell her that all the time!

    Is she the one who sings with Manu Boyd's group on the Hawaii version of "My Prayer?"
    That song by Josh Groban (and someone else) brings tears to my eyes -- and the Hawaii-version does as well, to the same degree.

    If it is Tani Lynn, I know what you mean. Superlative -- in her own way.
    I'm stoked that you made sure all your friends knew about Bianca ... if we never hear about her or see her again, then something has gone terribly wrong -- because she is an absolute phenom.

    That's actually Maila Gibson, sister of former Miss Hawaii Kanoelani Gibson.

    There's another good version of "The Prayer" out there by Tiffany Thurston and John Paul Lam -- http://www.myspace.com/tiffanythurston -- local kids you might have seen singing with the New Hope Fellowship.

    And regarding Bianca...it's very rare that a performance can move me like that. That song she sang for the finale, barefoot, mind you...ho wow, so SASSY! Sing it sister!

    Aha! Maila Gibson. Yep...she's is gooooood!

    Tiffany Thurston, too. I've only heard her sing in the annual New Hope Christmas play and was really impressed. I had no idea John Paul Lam could sing!

    Thanks for the info.

    Most definitely. At such a young age, he's already won numerous awards in the Christian music genre. Glad to know that he's venturing out to mainstream music now!

    Thank you for the link! That wasn't her best performance and deservedly so! She was fighting back tears most of the time as was I! It woulda been a bit too much if, under the emotional circumstances, an 11 year old could come thru with a flawless performance. Second only to Bianca's vocal ability is the fact that she remains 11. More important than her singing career is that she be allowed her childhood.

    Sure did! She's such a cutie and I'm so glad no one has 'glamorized' her. She said she'll give some of her winnings to her church, put some aside for college educations for her and her siblings and...then...go shopping!!! AND, she has a CD coming out on Nov. 14. Personally I feel watching Biana sing is half the joy of experiencing her talent. I'll anxiously await the CD, tho'.

    Unhappy Re: America's Got Talent

    hi this is sansei and the only judge who i call contriversial is piers morgan since he's from either england or britan and he and sharon at time's agree with one another.

    the problem with Piers is he once told the audience to keep quiet in his own word's and that's uncalled for. he disagree's with most of the act's only david like's them. i agree mostly with david h.

    well thank's for your time

Ciana is the 2008 Grand Champion of the "Al Waterson and You" Keiki Singing Competition (ages 6 to 9) at Don Ho's Island Grill. She is the first person from Hawaii selected to perform on the show. This very talented young lady is destined for stardom!!!

    Ciana sang "At Last" and wowed the judges and the audience. Tutusue, too! My eyes started leaking when she hit her first note.

    She moves on to Vegas!

    I saw your shout out to PK on Facebook, Auntie. Are you ok?

    Wow...how cool that Queen's tuned in to AGT...whether or not it was on purpose! Isn't Ciana adorable? She's been auditioning with me since she was a toddler as has her sister, Teiliana. Beautiful children.
