Anslom delivers electrifying performance

Performing two songs from his album, Love Me Again, Anslom brought the house down with cheers and dances. Fans from Papua New Guinea, the Cook Islands, Hawaii, and even a tourist from Brazil couldn't resist taking the stage. 

Despite the crowd's calls for more, stage officials had to make way for a Hawaiian contemporary band.
