Kokua for Japan and Jake Shimabukuro
I recently crawled out from under the rock on which I live and discovered ukulele sensation Matsumoto Shave Ice in Haleiwa on Oahu pledged $5,000 and .25 for every shave ice sold during the month of March. On May 1, Hawaiian Airlines presents “Lei Day for Japan,” yet another fundraiser.
Here's another video clip of Jake. Here, he plays Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody in front of a TED crowd. If you're like me, these two videos will make you run (or click) for iTunes and download a few of Jake's CDs. I recommend Peace Love Ukulele and Gently Weeps. "If everyone played the ukulele," Jake says, "the world would be a better place."
