"Sweet Leilani" was featured in the 1937 film, Waikiki Wedding. It
won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, and Bing Crosby’s
record became one of the biggest hits of the year.
Harry Owens wrote the song on October 20, 1934 for his daughter
Leilani, who was born the previous day. Leilani is a popular
Hawaiian name, meaning "heavenly garland of flowers".
