ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These dozen songs were composed on Ko'Olina's Rodger's 751 i/e electronic organ. Rodgers sale's associates describe this organ as the "most used Rodger's organ in the world." Such a beautiful instrument is destined only to compose beautiful melodies. Michael Akin (myself) opened this beautiful wedding chapel on April 2, 1999. I have played as many as eleven weddings a days. Thousands upon thousands of Happy Couples have married there. It is built to Concert Pitch A 440 hz. With so many things going right for Watabe Wedding Company who manages such a successful business it is easy to understand why so many Japanese Couples are attracted to Ko'Olina. Now there are many Chinese and Koreans Couples finding their way to this "Place of Joy." Couples from all over the world have married at Ko'Olina.

From playing thousands of weddings, it was destined for me to discover how to bring tears to everyone in the chapel. It has to do with sensitivity of the musician (myself), the speed of the wedding march, the cadence and tone of the voices of the couple and the parent giving the bride away and the resonance of the chapel. Put all these things together and it is possible to make everyone cry.

The music of this Original Hawaiian Wedding Songs CD are made from the melodies that drifted into my head as I played the ceremony. Being born exactly 137 years after Chopin's Birthday there have been times I feel his spirit and these are the times when I am most receptive to melody lines drifting into the chapel on cosmic strings from the past.

Ko'Olina has many beautiful singers. Yana Lehua is one of them. Our ceremony opens with the Hawaiian Wedding Song. She has the kind of vocal sensitivity that brings tears to the couple and their guests by the fourth measure of her singing. With her beauty and sensitive voice, she is a perfect match for my playing. Together we put our best effort onto creating a dozen new melodies of love. For love we made Original Hawaiian Wedding Songs because Yana and I know for love couples come to Hawaii to marry to find the romance that will make them happy. With the blessings of the terrific ministers at Ko'Olina, a hope and prayer are offered to the Almighty that their marriage bring beautiful children into this world and last a lifetime. As far as the chapel staff knows, all the couples who have returned to Ko'Olina with their children have hinted strongly that all the weddings at Ko'OIina have been successful. Could this be true? Yes most definitely yes.
