Don Ho, 1930-2007
Published April 20, 2007

Hawaiian music legend Donald Tai Loy “Don” Ho died April 14 of heart failure. He’s best known for the song “Tiny Bubbles,” which was a major hit upon its original release in 1966. Of Hawaiian, Chinese, Portuguese, German and Dutch descent, he began performing in the early 1950s, and became a major tourist attraction in between television appearances (he even had his own network variety show in 1976 and 1977). He had 10 children by three wives, and one of his daughters, Hoku, scored two pop hits of her own in 2000.
