Hawaiian Wedding Song

Maui, Hawaii

Hawaiian Wedding Song is a traditional pop song.

The song was first adapted from the 1926 operetta, Prince of Hawaii, by Charles E. King.

The song was originally titled “Ke Kali Nei Au” which is Hawaiian for Waiting Here for You.

Al Hoffman and Dick Manning translated the original Hawaiian words into English and renamed it “Hawaiian Wedding Song”.

In 1958, Andy Williams recorded the song, which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The song was also used in the Elvis Presley movie Blue Hawaii in 1961.
