LIHU‘E — Kaua‘i musicians Randy Leonard and Monica Chung have founded Sing Out Kaua‘i, a new, nonprofit organization helping keep choral music alive on Kaua‘i.
Aloha everyone. After the song “I Searched For Love,” written for my wife Gloria, I had to start composing songs for my children. I have three sons that I love. Larry Jr., Derek Lee and Dwayne. I chose Derek Lee to compose this song because the syllable Derek Lee matched the tune.
“This song is so, so timely of what is happening in America. I wrote this song in that was sung by 350 young people known as the Continental Singers, directed by Cam Flora at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium on July 4, 1976 — America’s 200th Birthday. I hope you like it.”
