Local entertainer Raiatea Helm has teamed up once again with Hawaiian Host to release a special, limited edition box of the chocolate maker’s Christmas Macadamia Medley.
Just as she did in 2008, Helm has recorded a new single to go with the boxes — “Foolish Ways” is presented in two versions, acoustic and an “Island Remix,” along with three other songs from three previous albums — and she’ll embark on a quick statewide tour in support of the promotion. Play the YouTube video above for a sample of the new song.
“As an entertainer, I am so often on stage and away from the audience, but with the Hawaiian Host tour I get to meet so many wonderful people,” she said in a press release. “Last year, I got the opportunity to travel to four islands and visit eight locations in one month.”
Once again, Helm will travel to the Big Island, Maui and Kauai in addition to making four appearances on Oahu.

» Nov. 7: Wal-Mart Mililani, noon
