Imagine singing a song from one of your favorite artists only to find out not only have they been in front of you the entire time, but they joined you. That is what Clint Alama experienced while singing “One Day” at the Honolulu Coffee Company in Paia.
Local Paia musician Alama was performing at the coffee shop when a man begins signing with him. Unbeknownst to him, the man singing was actually Matisyahu who was in Maui to headline the annual MayJah RayJah concert at the Maui Arts and Culture Center (MACC). A stunned Alama shakes hands with Matis as he is congratulated on a job well done.
