First Annual Capitol Talent Show

The Mysterious Madame Moshiro stealing the show and our hearts.
Yesterday evening, lawmakers from the House and the Senate squared off in the first annual Capitol Talent Show to benefit the Hawaii Food Bank. The House team included Reps. Tom Brower, Cindy Evans, Faye Hanohano, Ken Ito, John Mizuno, Dee Morikawa, and Marcus Oshiro. Senators Mike Gabbard, Brickwood Galuteria, Josh Green, Pohai Ryan, and Malama Solomon represented the other chamber of our state legislature.

The contest was neck and neck until the Mysterious Madame Moshiro (House Finance Chair, Marcus Oshiro) electrified the room with 'her' rendition of "I Will Survive." 3M's sultry performance captured her the award for best individual performance and led the House team to its first Koa Cup team title.

The bar has been set pretty high (or low) for next year's contest, where the House will try to keep the Cup. At the end of the day, $1,391 was raised for the Hawaii Food Bank and a lot of fun was had by all!
