<i><p>"Today marks the five year anniversary of an album that I worked very hard on and am frankly quite proud of. Hawaii: Part II was the vision of Joe Hawley and the product of countless other musicians, singers, arrangers, and writers. Joe Hawley, Bora Karaca and I coordinated the recording, production, and mixing of this album which was no small feat. Having more than 30 artists, many recording parts on their own and submitting individual vocal or instrumental tracks, pushed our organizational skills to their limits. It is also noteworthy that I did not see Joe or Bora face-to-face throughout any of this process. My personal goal in this was to help create a record with “a life of its own.” I’ve always felt that some of the best albums never sound quite the same to you, even after countless listens. I feel as if the album is continuing to grow while it rests idly on the shelf (or your hard drive, or somewhere in the cloud) and that every listen through is a little window into its current time. Of course it’s the listener growing and changing, but I think it takes a certain kind of record to track along with its listener in this way. I set out to fill this album with as much emotion and vitality as I could from my humble remote mixing station. In the end, I feel that we did create an album with a life of its own and one that speaks for itself. Week after week, it continues to find new homes in the ears of eager discoverers, despite a total lack of promotion. It’s certainly not normal, and it’s probably like nothing you’ve ever heard, but it is still very much alive to this day. I can’t thank the rest of the Miracle Musical team, and Joe and Bora enough for the work that went into this. Happy fifth Birthday Hawaii: Part II."</p></i>

When asked, on the 2018 Reddit AMA,  about the process of collaborating with so many people remotely, Bora answered:
 
<i>"It was magical because it was my first time doing something like that. People who would happen to be in town in Los Angeles would just swing by, pop in, and put their little piece in. This is now the way I want to do things, personally!"</i><br>
