Popular Hawaiian musician Willie K. made special appearance with the UH Marching Band during halftime of Saturday’s #HawaiiFB game. He also dropped this memorable national anthem that had a lot of people taking note.Willie K has also been fighting lung cancer this year, making this feel even more special.
The Anthem can be sensitive, but this Hawaiian musician made his version seem just right. Nice work by the U of Hawaii taking a bit of a chance.
I can assure you you have never seen the Star-Spangled Banner performed like this before. pic.twitter.com/Rc8eO9uPid
