"Last night was my last night with Hot Lava 808! It's been twelve amazing years and a chapter of my life that must now come to a close.
I will cherish these memories in my heart, and forever be grateful for the incredible musical Journey!!
Thank you to all of you who supported me throughout the years:))
I look forward to writing the next fabulous chapter of my life."
Singing sensation Hot Lava 808 erupted on the Island of Hawai'i in 2000, consisting of native island girls Priscilla Basque, Laureen Debina, and Kaleiula K. Makekau, recreating the sizzling sounds of Motown, Disco, Soul, and Rock while being backed-up by Warren Kaneao. For additional fun, there's the addition to local girls Yisa Var, Ivaloni Atkinson, and Haunani Hamora filling in when Laureen left the group.
