What is the meaning behind the title or theme of the CD?

Welcome 2 My Paradise marks Henry’ Kapono’s 20th solo album and his 1st Kapono release in 4 years. This long awaited collection of 10 originals was largely written while travelling and was inspired by his many fans around the world. W2MP celebrates Henry’s love of life and a state of mind that he believes everybody can achieve if we embrace each day as a gift, love one another and recognize that the little things very often are the big things.

Henry Kapono has had a lifelong love affair with his Home in the Islands, that he calls Paradise. However, his Cd, W2MP, is about a state of mind. Henry see’s everyday as Paradise because he chooses to. Henry embraces every day and sees the beauty in all things and the perfection in the imperfection. He does his best to share this state of mind of love peace and happiness with his family, friends, fans and the world. He encourages others to see the beauty in everyday life and to share their Paradise with the world as well.

Welcome 2 my Paradise celebrates everything I feel about love, family, friends, travel, People and FUN! To be inspired and to celebrate every day and in every way is My Paradise! I take it with me everywhere and share it with everyone every chance I get. I’ve journeyed around the world and back and the experiences have been priceless. It’s been a long train running and a crazy good ride. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am fortunately blessed and extremely grateful. Music has been my religion, my world, my Paradise. Welcome
— Henry

MUSIC VIDEO’S

Watch “Celebrate” & “Love You Forever” from the Just Released Album “Welcome 2 My Paradise.”

“Celebrate”

This video represents my appreciation for the beauty of life that surround us. The things that I myself have taken for granted. The sun the moon the earth and each other. As time goes on we start to realize that all the money and power in the world holds no candle to life that allows us this existence. It gives us the right to carry on and a reason to “Celebrate!!!”

Lyrics

“Celebrate”

If the sun didn't rise tomorrow

And the moon got lost up in the sky

And earth stop spinning for no reason

Would we laugh, or would we cry

Whoa-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

If a man lost his way to his dream

and a woman thought that her beauty would never be seen

and a child lost his heart by a stream would they laugh, or would they cry

Whoa-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

Thank God we can count on the sun

And that big ole moon, it ain't going nowhere

And the earth will keep spinning around and around and around and round...

forever yes we can laugh, we can cry, we can celebrate cuz it's alright

We can laugh, we can cry, we can celebrate, whoa, cuz it's alright

Whoa-o-o-o Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

Whoa-o-o-o Whoa-o-o-o-o-o

 

 

“Love You Forever”

Nominated for a Hoku Award (Aka Hawaiian Grammys) “Song of the Year”

When Josh (Video Director), gave me the story board and prelim video for this song, I knew he had the vision to capture the essence of ‘Love You Forever’ through this beautiful wedding story and to make an EPIC music video. Mahalo Josh, Claudia, Last Light Pictures and Ruben Carrillo for an amazing job!
— LOVE YOU FOREVER, HENRY

LYRICS

(Chorus)

I could love you forever
We could make love our home
We could make it together
I can’t do it alone

Cuz it’s you that I want in my life forever
You and me and the dreams we discover
It’s you only you that I want right here

(Bridge)

You are all that I want
You are all that I need
Take my hand
Take my heart and my soul
Take me into your dream

(Chorus)

I could love you forever
We could make love our home
We could make it together
I can’t do it alone

All the fears that we have wash away with the notion
That our love will rise up above the commotion
It’s you only you that I want right here


(Bridge)

You are all that I want
You are all that I need
Take my hand
Take my heart and my soul
Take me into your dream

(Chorus)

I could love you forever
We could make love our home
We could make it together
I can’t do it alone
I can’t do it alone
