Brother IZ

A number of years ago Lucia and I had the privilege to spend a week in Hawaii. It was beyond belief. It was drop-dead gorgeous! While we were there we visited with a friend who turned us on to some Hawaiian music, particularly Brother IZ. His real name is Israel Kamakawiwo`ole. He is one of the most popular Hawaiian singers ever. He is revered over there. He died a few years back.

If you’ve ever seen the movie “Finding Forrester” and watched the end credits roll up-the closing scene on the basketball court-then you heard Brother IZ sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” It’s one of the most popular versions of that song.

Here’s a Youtube clip of Brother IZ.
