Today he is one of Hawai‘i’s most popular recording artists and presides over Kapono Inc, one of Hawai`i's top multi-function entertainment companies. Kapono is equally known for his community support and philanthropic endeavors, recently launching the “The Henry Kapono Foundation” in 2018 whose mission is to "Support the music and arts community and by giving with Aloha.” Native Hawaiian Kapono is a Grammy-nominated, multiple award-winning singer and songwriter and the winner of 21 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards (Hawai‛i’s “Grammy's") including Best Contemporary Album of the Year and, by public vote, Favorite Entertainer of the Year.
