Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina formed the popular singing duo Loggins and Messina in the 1970s, before parting to launch their own solo careers.

Emme Tomimbang's "Island Moments" today takes a look back at these performer's lives together and individually, in a program full of music.

The members of the group Forte perform for
Tomimbang's cameras, and share their views
of the future of the Hawaiian music scene.

Loggins returned to Hawaii recently to perform with the Honolulu Symphony and brought Hapa on stage for a special appearance. Messina also came back to Hawaii to do a special recording of his song, "The Island." Playing slack-key guitar with him were Ledward Kaapana and Greg Sardinha.

Also on the show is Dean Pitchford, a local boy who has made a name for himself on the big screen and on stage with his hit, "Footloose," performed by Loggins. Tomimbang will talk to Pitchford about his musical successes and collaboration with Loggins. His Broadway musical, "Footloose," recently received four Tony nominations.

Tomimbang will also talk to Cecilio and Kapono, whose hits such as "About You," "You and Me" and "Friends" defined the generation that grew up in the '70s, and local singing group Forte will share its music and views about Hawaii's future generation.
