Aloha Faith!

I put your new album on my Christmas "wish list," and was delighted to get it--but not as delighted as I was when I heard it. Maika'i! What a wonderful recording it is! I've been a fan of yours for a while, but I think this is my new fave. Keep up the good work! Can't wait for the next one!

I've been a big fan of the wonderfully talented and beautiful, Faith! Her versatility in all genres of music captures my heart and I encourage everyone to hear the incredible songstress!  God bless you all and have a beautiful new year!

Since '00 I've had the privilege of experiencing Faith's leo as po'e hula and a spectator. For those of us living away from the 'aina her music brings us back to our native elements. From the North Shore of O'ahu to the Bay Area you have made us all proud Aunty!

Just look at this beautiful picture of the lovely Faith Ako!!!  She is amazing and sings and plays just as beautifully as she looks.  Faith's new album is dynamite!  You have to get it.I love watching you play on your special ukelele ....she is sharing her love of her culture and the beautiful islands in such a way that you can just imagine being there while you listen to her melodic voice. It makes me long to go back home.  Mahalo Faith for sharing your friendship and your love.

Aloha Faith!
It was great to meet and talk story with you at the Academy
Of Hawaiian Arts A Perfect 10 performance. There's nothing better
than a live performance with Kumu Mark, the Academy of Hawaiian
Arts dancers and additional musicians to produce a stellar performance.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
Mahalo nui loa!

Aloha e Faith,

I am so happy to receive your new CD "Kulaiwi" as a Christmas present from my hula sister, loved it!  listened to it many, many times.  After I had a chance to meet you, spent a few hours with you made me realize there is a beautiful, generous, kind person behind the talent.  We are lucky that you are in the Bay Area whereby we are able to enjoy Hawaiian music without having to go afar.

Looking forward to seeing you again!

We in Santa Cruz are sooo happy and excited that you will be coming back to do another show in April.  Fortunately I get to see you 7 or more times a year, but still NOT ENOUGH.  For as we know,  there is no such thing as "too much Faith".  See you soon my friend.  Alofa

For the past decade-plus, I have been privileged to not only hear Faith Ako's music and her beautiful voice, but also to enjoy her company on many occasions. Each of the CD's that she has released surpasses the one before it; more talented, more polished and more beautiful. Thank you Faith for enriching my musical world!

Hi Faith
I got two of your albums several weeks ago and they are wonderful. I am ordering the third one today.. We were looking for someone to perform at our Country Club Luau, and saw by your schedule you were already busy. The Social Committee I am on loved your music, and we will be contacting you soon to look for something next year.

I came across your live performance of Blue Bayou by searching special cover versions of this song In the internet.   I was totally impressed by that "gig" in front of this beautiful landscape. Kind regards from a winter cold Austria in the heart of Europe. Andreas

Aloha girlfriend. I randomly searched for you and Chauncey and your career popped up. I am in absolute shock. How did I not even know you could sing? You look gorgeous! I live in Provo Utah. Married in the temple. Live a couple blocks from mom, brothers Brian and David. Dad passed away in 2003 of cancer. I can see from your schedule that you barely have time to breathe, but if you ever get a spare minute call me. My married name is Cathy Miles Colledge. Much love to you!



Faith Ako's picture

So good to hear from sister, so happy you are doing great in Utah land! I have lots of family in Utah and come there at least 3 times a year. I'll give you a call soon, aloha and good to hear about your family all close by. Your mom still sings the best, "O Holy Night", aloha sweety!

Hi Faith, first time we ever heard you. We were Peace Corps volunteers in Tonga nearly 40 years ago, where we were introduced to and fell in love with Polynesian culture, especially the music. Your performance was wonderful. We had tears in our eyes! Superb! The aloha in the audience was awesome and the hula dancers were a wonderful surprise. Have a great tour and keep on sharing your special gift.

Aloha from Turlock, California!  I was in your workshop at the Reno Ukulele Festival.  You were a fabulous instructor.  I liked how you geared everything down and giving us all these tips.  Of course, we are now home and are lost in the dark trying to remember what happened in class.  Thank goodness for your wonderful notes. 

I played your new cd all afternoon.  It makes me want to return to Hawaii again.  Maybe I will go to Chabot College next weekend.  They are having their Hawaiian Days on stage.  

You were spectacular on stage too.  I think you are a beautiful woman who is "together " and not afraid to tell the kids on stage that you were there.  I loved your humor and the connection you had with Stephen.  He seems to be a serious guy so, it was pretty cool act with humor.  You were all so talented.    Mahlo!  Sandie

Aloha Sandie, mahalo for your sweet message and attendance to the Reno Ukulele Festival. It was an amazing weekend and so much fun and play? Not enough work, haha! Glad you enjoyed your workshop with me, it's best I feel to be real and honest about what we love to do which is create and perform Hawaiian music. To tell and share the stories behind the hula, the artist and the thought process of when the songs were composed back in time. It's our job really it is to share that so when you play Hawaiian music, or any other genre of music on the ukulele? You know and feel what you are singing about and connect to it. Not only for yourself but to others as well listening. Yes Steve and I go way back, he's like my younger brother the pesty one, haha! Take care, keep strumming, a hui hou Faith
