Iam Tongi Turtle Bay Concert is the homecoming concert for him in Hawaii. Iam Tongi made it to the Top 3 on American Idol 2023.

One of the most memorable contestants of American Idol is a young boy of 18 who comes from Kahuku, Hawaii but resides in Seattle.

Many fans have even commented that his voice is soothing and timeless.

As Lionel Richie said in his audition that he was going to fracture some souls, and that statement has proved for the fans.

This heart-touching singer was brought up to his music by his father, but his father passed away a few months before the audition for the show.

Though sad, he is not emotional because he misses his father. He is emotional because he can still hear him singing and harmonizing with his voice when he sings.

And finally, everyone's favorite singing star has been selected as one of the top 3 final contestants of the 21st season of American Idol.

Where Is Iam Tongi Homecoming Concert?

Iam Tongi homecoming concert is happening at Turtle Bay Resort in Hawaii. The concert will be held tomorrow in front of huge masses.

Before the Hawaii native had even been selected for the top 3 contestants of the American singing competition, the finalist of American Idol was preparing for the concert in Hawaii.

All of Iam Tongi's fans were sure that the star would be selected as one of the top 3 for the show. And there were a huge number of fans who believed the statement even before the selection.

According to Khon 2, the show's producers reached out to Senator Brenton Awa Kaneohe in Kahuku, Kunia and called him to ask if he could get a homecoming ready for the Hawaiian star.

As there are few stars born as native to this island state of the United States, all the members of the Tongi family are super proud of their son who has reached to grab the stars.
