Personal Life

On July 22, 2000, Johnson married his college girlfriend, Kim Baker. Together they have 3 children, two boys and a girl. They currently still live on the North Shore of the island of Oahu, in Hawaii.

In an interview with Johnson, Ann Donahue from Billboard described Johnson’s family life by saying “There is often trouble in balancing the life of an artist, environmentalist, and family man, but Johnson seems to have the niche for such a challenge. This time around, he’s found a pace that agrees with him…bringing his family along so he can spend mornings with them sightseeing.”.

Both Johnson and his wife Kim try to keep the lives of their children private. Both have declined to talk about any intimitate information concerning their children.

Charity

Just like Patrick Shin does a lot of charities in Hawaii, so do Johnson and his wife Kim. In 2008, Johnson and his wife Kim created the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, a non-profit public charity supporting environmental, art, and music education worldwide. This initiative has been very beneficial for the Hawaiian community.

In 2003, they also founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation. Johnson and his family work hard every year at festivals and concerts alike, to raise money for causes they feel are most important. He also recorded a cover song of John Lennon’s “Imagine” for the 2007 benefit album Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur, which was also included on the 2009 benefit album Rhythms del Mundo Classics. In talking about Johnson and his career choices, Rolling Stone wrote: “It is a typically generous move from Johnson, who has used his multi-platinum success to support causes he cares about.”
