Since we’re in Santa Monica today for our “Coffee and a Smile” meetup we thought we’d bring back this classic piece on local performer Arthur Nakane the One Man Band!

Do you need a good voice to be a singer? Not according to Arthur Nakane! This Los Angeles based street performer says true singers only need heart and determination.  At age 77, Arthur performs for free all over California for energetic crowds of people.  He has been featured in several documentaries and was a finalist on America’s Got Talent.  All that aside, Arthur’s motivation to continue performing is to teach and inspire today’s youth!
