Ku kilakila o Kamehameha, Kuu home hoonaauao… rang out in Long Beach, 1926.

THERE WAS GREAT DELIGHT IN THE SINGING OF MISS LOUISE POHINA

A newspaper from Long Beach, California described how the recent singing of Miss Louise Pohina became something that the haole who showed up to hear her were greatly delighted in, joining in with those who went to offer their thanks and congratulations to her, the singers, and the skilled dancers.

There was a concert given in this city by the Ebell Club, with Miss Pohina singing some numbers and Lillian Edwards of Pasadena playing the piano; at the concert, the audience kept clapping for each song performed by Miss Pohina, and one of those songs was Kamehameha Waltz.

Miss Pohina came back twice after every song, and because of the requests, after her songs on the program were done, she sang a French song, receiving much acclaim.

When the concert was over, there were many singers from Long Beach and a number of other prominent women, from among which was Miss Maude Allan, a famous dancer, who went to give their appreciation and congratulations for the beauty of her singing voice.

Because there was no end to the admiration of the people there for the beauty of the voice of Miss Pohina, she sang once more in a concert at the Omar Hubbard Building, accompanied by the group with whom she sang at the Ebell Club, with Madame Lillian Edwards on the piano.

Miss Louise Pohina is a girl with a fine singing voice, and therefore she was selected from among the many girls of this town, and sent to America to train her voice under teachers who are experts as singing.

With that great enthusiasm for Miss Pohina’s singing, it is very clear that she is on the road that will take her to becoming master of the difficult and intricate principles of singing; she will return back to Hawaii nei in the near future.
