In 2006 and early 2007, Don Ho shared a lifetime of memories with veteran music writer Jerry Hopkins and others, a project completed just two days before his death from heart failure in April 2007. The result of this timely collaboration is "Don Ho: My Music, My Life," a unique mix of his own recollections and the stories of friends and family what Don called a modern Hawaiian quilt of memories. Collected in this hardcover coffee-table book are revealing anecdotes and hundreds of memorable photographs from Don Ho's personal collection and many other sources not just the behind-the-scenes showbiz stories, but tales of the youthful football star, the U.S. Air Force pilot, the community leader and the loving father of ten talented children. Here is the story of a barefoot island boy who grew up to work and play with the biggest names in show business and society, from Jackie Kennedy to Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope to Elvis Presley yet an entertainment icon who summed it up with the title of one of his biggest hits: Ain't no big thing!

Ho summed it up best when he said, “People used me as a good excuse for a party a thousand times.” And that’s exactly what My Music, My Life is–a party honoring an island icon.
