Israel Kamakawiwoole
“Somewhere Over the rainbow & What a wonderful world”

This week is all about cover songs that I’ve liked over the years. We start out on one of my favorites. “Somewhere Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World” by Israel “Bruddah Iz” Kamakawiwo’ole. He was called “The gentle Giant” by his friends in Hawa’i. I first heard this song in the movie Raising Arizona. That was a long time ago.

Here is a youtube video of the performance.

From the Album: Facing Future

    What do you think of Eva Cassidy’s version?

    I don’t know how it all works, but thank you for not letting this beautiful man’s song be stolen from the world. I never met him but I miss him dearly. Peace and love, Chucky Moreland.
