When was the last time you went to a show at the Blaisdell Arena and made a difference in your local community? Well, here’s your opportunity!

 

World-renowned Broadway singer/actress Lea Salonga and Dancing with the Stars phenom and Island girl Carrie Ann Inaba will participate in Kristi Yamaguchi’s Golden Moment, an extraordinary benefit concert-on-ice for early childhood literacy in Hawai‘i.

 

The Tony Award-winning Salonga will join a star-studded cast of international figure-skating champions, including Meryl Davis and Charlie White, Daisuke Takahashi and Katia Gordeeva, who will take “center ice” at the Blaisdell Arena in this all-new production of Golden Moment, a project of Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation to help raise funds for Hawai‘i’s Title 1 public schools. The skating extravaganza will be choreographed to live musical performances by Salonga, while Olympic gold-medalist Brian Boitano serves as co-host to Carrie Ann Inaba on Sept. 9. Billy V. returns as co-host for Sept. 10. (See Golden Moment highlights here.)

“I’m thrilled to have Lea and Carrie Ann join us for Golden Moment 2017,” Yamaguchi says. “Hawai‘i is like a home for all of us, and we’re so excited to perform here together for the first time, not only to bring a once-in-a-lifetime show to the people of Hawai‘i, but to support early childhood literacy for underserved kids in the Aloha State.”
