Somewhere Over The Rainbow

We came across this AMAZING song by a Hawaiian musician known as Isreal “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole or “IZ” for short.

You may recognise his music from films like Meet Joe Black (if you could stop focussing on Claire Forlani and Brad Pitt for even a second) and 50 First Dates (love Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore).

It was really sad to discover that IZ passed away in 1997, at the very young age of 38, due to respiratory and other medical problems brought on by a lifelong struggle with obesity but the goodness that is his beautiful music lives on forever.

“I’ve seen it all, done it all, known it all.” – Isreal Kamakawiwo’ole
