Anuhea is a Hawaiian born pop, reggae, and acoustic soul singer/ song writer.  She was born on Maui just like me and she soon became a known name in Hawaii.  Anu does collaborations with various other artists like Sammy J (Sammy Johnson) , J Boog, SOJA, Katchafire, and more. Her songs are calming and can put you in a good mood.  Although she didn't complete her higher education she has an Always Aloha Foundation to give scholarships to deserving Hawaii students.  Through this Anuhea connects to her family of educators and her fans to encourage higher education.  

With the primary influences of Jack Johnson, Bob Marley, India.Arie, and Jason Mraz, Anuhea made her recording debut in 2009 with the One Hawaii Music Label.  The album featuring the song Right love, Wrong Time was number two on Billboards World Albums.  Anuhea remains humble when she's referred to as one of the top musicians from Hawaii of all time.  

Anuhea was born on Maui and boarded Kamehameha Schools on Oahu, enjoying sports then music.  Anuhea has various accomplishments like preforming as the headline act at the 2011 NFL ProBowl Halftime show at Aloha Stadium.
