Over the weekend, a cavalcade of artists from the islands and with local ties came together as part of Kokua For Japan. The event yesterday at the Hilton Hawaiian Village raised over $1.6 million dollars for relief efforts in Japan. HPR's Dave Lawrence was there and spoke with several of the performers.
