Loyal Garner
Birth: Sep. 28, 1946
Honolulu County
Hawaii, USA
Death: Nov. 15, 2001
Honolulu County
Hawaii, USA

Hawaiian Singer nicknamed "Hawaii's Lady of Love." Garner, known for her Hawaiian ballads, as well as jazz and country songs, recorded numerous albums and performed throughout the world from Carnegie Hall to Tokyo. She received the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Female Vocalist of the Year in both 1982 and 1993. More recently, she had formed the group "The Local Divas" along with fellow performers Carole Kai, Melveen Leed and Nohelani Cypriano. When Garner was first diagnosed with colon cancer, doctors said she had about six to nine months to live. Loyal fought it for two years. Her death came a week before a scheduled Divas concert. The remaining divas revamped the concert into a tribute concert, titled "This one's for you, Loyal." (bio by: Mongoose)
