Taimane Tauiliili Bobby Gardner (Taimane means DIAMOND in the Samoan language)
Taimane has often been described as a musical child prodigy. Interestingly, she developed her extraordinary skills by performing on the streets of Waikiki to help raise money for the poor. She began this at the young age of 11 and she continues to do so to this day, now 17 years old. Taimane polished her skills while performing with the legendary Don Ho starting at 14 years of age. Mr. Ho was the ultimate professional entertainer for over 45 years! He kindly and with "aloha" took Taimane under his wing and gently helped her until she glowed with self confidence and learned what real entertaining is all about, "aloha." He was a wonderful mentor and will be loved forever. Taimane has performed in Las Vegas, Palm Springs and numerous locations with the Don Ho Show. Thank you, "Uncle Don".
