TWO HAWAIIAN SELECTED FOR THEIR FINE VOICES
WILLIAM KAHELE. ALFRED ALOHIKEA.
From amongst many Hawaiian youths who went to show the quality of their singing voices, chosen were William Kahele and Alfred Alohikea for them to study under Professor Wanrell.
William Kahele was selected for quality of his tenor voice, and Alfred Alohikea for his reverberating bass [leo kane].
They were picked by a committee, that being Mrs. R. Allen, Arthur Wall and Raymond C. Brown, who tested all of the voices who put in the application to become students under the tutelage of Professor Wanrell, and the decision of the committee was the choosing of those Hawaiian boys.
