|The Live Aloha Stage|
|The Live Aloha Stage was located right|
in front of the Space Needle
I was very concerned about the fact that I had not managed to memorize all of the words and chords for some of the songs. However, I was very fortunate to end up standing next to a woman who had the foresight to bring a small music stand. It is so much more fun to play and sing when I know the song by heart and I'm not tied to the music. Memorizing the words is more of a daunting task when singing in a foreign language and the words are more or less nonsense syllables. We played a total of five songs, three in Hawaiian and two in English. Alu Like, Haole Hula, Ka Na'I Aupuni, There's No Place Like Hawaii, and E Huli. I enjoyed the last song the most. Partly because because I had memorized both words and chords, and partly because there were about a dozen people doing the hula right in front of us.
