Elvis in Hawaii: "I'll Remember You"

In 1973 Elvis Presley made a television special called "Aloha from Hawaii." He performed live and the performance was transmitted all over the world by satellite.

The purpose of that performance was to raise money for the cancer wing of a Hawaiian hospital, in memory and honor of Kui Lee. Kui Lee had been a popular Hawaiian singer and songwriter until his death from cancer at the age of 34 in 1966. One of Kui Lee's best compositions was the love song, "I'll Remember You." That song has always had, for me, a touching remembrance of ones loved and lost.

The little girl at the right is my granddaughter and I haven't seen her in two years.  I may never see her again...but she's alive and well.  It is to her that I dedicate this song.

Update:  I have subsequently been reunited with my granddaughter.

Here's a video of Elvis singing "I'll Remember You" in that 1973 television special.



I'll Remember You

I'll remember you
Long after this endless summer is gone
I'll be lonely, oh so lonely
Living only to remember you

I'll remember too
Your voice as soft as a warm summer breeze
Your sweet laughter mornings after
Every afternoon I'll remember you

Chorus:

To your arms some day
I'll return to stay 'til then

I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
Love me always promise always
You'll remember too
