Israel Ka’ano’i Kamakawiwo’ole

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

No, seriously. I KNOW you've heard this song, but do you know who sang it?

Israel Ka’ano’i Kamakawiwo’ole, or more locally known as “IZ”, was a Hawaiian artist who sang songs and performed with ukuleles. IZ was also referred to as “The Gentle Giant” because, despite his larger size, his voice was an awesome combination of delicate, soulful, and penetrating. He was, and is, a legend.
