There is more than one artist with this name: 1) Donald Ho Tai Loy (in Chinese characters, ???), born August 13, 1930 (died April 14, 2007) is a Hawaiian musician and entertainer. Ho, of mixed Chinese, Hawaiian, Portuguese, Dutch and German descent, was born in the small Honolulu neighborhood of Kaka'ako but he grew up in K?ne'ohe on the windward side of the island of O'ahu. 1954, Ho entered the United States Air Force and spent time flying fighter jets in both Texas and Hawaii. Ho left the Air Force in 1960 due to his mother's illness.
In 1962, Ho moved from K?ne'ohe to Waik?k? in Honolulu and played at a night club called Duke's, where he caught the attention of record company officials.
Ho released his debut album, Don Ho Show, in 1965 and began to play high profile locations in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and New York City. In 1966, he released his second album, a live compilation called Don Ho ? Again!, which charted in the early part of that year. In the fall of 1966, Ho released his most famous song, "Tiny Bubbles", which charted on both the pop and easy listening charts and caused the subsequent Tiny Bubbles LP to remain in the album Top 20 for almost a year. Guest appearances on television shows such as The Brady Bunch soon followed. Although his album sales peaked in the late 1960s, he was able to land a television spot on ABC from October 1976 to March 1977 with the Don Ho Show variety program.
Don Ho continued to be a popular concert tour draw until his death. Until the end, he continued to perform regularly at the Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel and could also be seen at the restaurant/night club that borrowed his name (Don Ho's Island Grill) in downtown Honolulu near Aloha Tower.
