About "Hawaiian Wedding Song"

"Hawaiian Wedding Song" originally entitled; "Ke Kali Nei Aua" (Waiting There for Thee) was adapted from a 1926 love song written by Charles E. King and originally recorded by Helen Desha Beamer in its original (Hawaiian language) version but re-written by Al Hoffman and Dick Manning and renamed as "Hawaiian Wedding Song". The song was recorded by Bing Crosby, Andy Williams and Elvis Presley.

In the US, Andy Williams' version (accompanied by Archie Bleyer and his orchestra, with backing vocals by Anita Wood) was released as a single in 1958 and reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 27 on the R&B chart. In the UK, a single version by Julie Rogers went to number 31 on the UK Singles Chart in 1965. Elvis Presley sang another version of the song in the 1961 film Blue Hawaii. In 1964, Hong Kong female singer Kong Ling covered the song on her LP album This World We Live In with Diamond Records (now under UMG).

An earlier English version of "Ke Kali Nei Au" was by Bing Crosby and it was titled "Here Ends the Rainbow" with Johnny Burke supplying the lyrics. This was recorded on February 9, 1951, with Betty Mullin and Lyn Murray and His Orchestra.
