Hi again. Didn’t mean to hit the send button.

Iz’s music touches and stirs deep places in me. I am thankful to be inspired by the beauty of his spirit. I hope hearing this provides you some comfort in your loss.

Tom

IN August of 2005, My wife and I visited The islands of Hawaii for our honeymoon. From the moment the plane touched down, I felt drawn to the islands. Maybe it was the way the sud was burning down on us, maybe it was the smell of the Pacific, (we only get to smell the Atlantic in New Jersey), I dont know what it was, but I felt like I belonged there! My wife and I only had a week to spend in the glorious sunshine, and I was very sad to go when the time came for our departure. Upon returning to the mainland, I could not shake the feeling that I left a part of me there. I found some of Iz’s music on Itunes, and when my life finds me in trouble, or too stressed out, I pop on some of his musc and it brings me back to the islands. Iz, in one of your songs, you tell us to email you, and I wanted to do so, but today I discovered that you are with us no more. I was heartbroken to hear that, because I wanted to share with you my thanks that your music was able to bring me back to the place I loved so much. Thank you Iz.
Justin

When I listen now to your song I think to her I love you, my little daughter

I keep coming back to read these since the start of the postings. I miss him like my own brother. I am amazed how many people feel the same about Iz as I do, without even meeting him or even going to Hawaii. He will always be my favorite musician, my hero. I wish everyone in the world could listen to him- maybe it would help.

May you rest in peace. You have been gone for many years but you still live inside of all of us, your music will go on and so will you in all of our memories. My son just graduate kindergarten in June 2006 and his class walked out to your song Over the Rainbow dedicating it to you. We all love you and always will.

Such a beautiful voice, and it lives on. I have only recently heard it, listening to ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’on the radio (London UK) – and am now a fan. Very sad to read of his short life. I will be seeking out more songs from this lovely man now.

I first heard this mans haunting voice in 50 First Dates. The song Over the Rainbow came up in conversation at work and that is when I first learned IZ’s name. The dude I was talking to said he had a CD with IZ’s music on it and he would burn me a copy, that was about a year ago. Amazon just delivered Facing Future (12-20-06). Even though IZ’s body let his spirit loose on the cosmos almost 10 years ago his, we call it mojo, I think you folks call it Mana, is still alive and strong. The proof is when IZ introduces himself through his music an he touches your heart, man the tears flow.

Though I never met Izza personally I feel his music in my heart. I was stationed in Hawaii for two tours. The first unmarried and I was fortunate to see him on stage at breifly once. May God bless and watch over his family always.

Your music has touched so many and I feel as though you should never be forgotten. I noticed that nobody had posted in a while so I thought I would keep you company for a while. I hope you can feel me up there, becuase I can definetely feel your presence every day down here touching my life. RIP Bruddah IZ Love, Tha Big Fella

I just discovered Brudda Iz’s music and am overwhelmed by his voice and gentle sound. As is often the case, Israel left us too soon, but, fortunately for us, he left his music to be enjoyed by his fans. I wish I had learned of him sooner, but I consider myself lucky to have found his music at all.

I have just discoverd Iz’s music and after looking him up on the net was sadly disappointed to read he is no longer with us in this world. His music is truly inspiring, I never thought I would ever get hooked on Over the Rainbow. Iz you are not only over the rainbow yourself but your music is the treasure at the end of it.

I recently won a trip to Hawaii. We stayed at the Kahala Resort. Their webpage had the most lovely song on it’s intro. It touched my heart so deeply that after our return I emailed them to ask who the artist was of the song so I have just found out about Israel. I’m so sorry to find that he has already passed at such a young age. What a talented man! I intend to find out more about his music.

Regards, Karen

I first herd his version of ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ over a public radio station here in the UK recently and has been used on TV ads here. I was captured by the individualatiy her brought to the song and decided to download some of his music never hearing of him before. i must say his music is amazing and is able to touch people so easily. i’ve currenly got his songs on my Ipod never to be removed.

Thanks Iz

I LOVE his version of over the rainbow.. The wizard of oz has always been and continues to be my favorite movie., my dad used to always say Oh the wizard of oz is on. Terri’s favorites movie and I got the TV for the night. My dad passed on to the next life while I was pregnant with his granddaughter and I am 53 years old now and married my second husband the true love of my life, I played Iz’s version of somewhere over the rainbow as my wedding song with my daughter as my maidren of honor and it meant so much to me. Because my family knew my history with that song and I knew my dad was looking down on me with his beautiful granddaughter and me and my perfect mate and it meant alot to me and sums up how I feel about life. There is life over the rainbow and there is a wonderful life down here. Life is beautiful and so is the next life. There should be no sadness in death as we get to be with our loved ones again. and life continues.. love is what counts nothing matters but love. love your family..

To the IZ family. I have recently travelled to Hawaii Sep 06 from Australia for the first time. I purchased a number of IZ cd’s and am absolutely in ore of this mans talent. I can’t explain the immense pleasure he brings to me to reflect on life and allow me to relax with my young family. I even bought a Uke in Hawaii to play to my little girl. He has inspired me. He was definately someone special. My very late condolences. All the best, Cheers Ian

Having just discovered the music of IZ, I am so saddened to learn that he has passed to his next life and left us behind. I visited Oahu in Oct. 2006 and wept when I had to return stateside. IZ’s music represents the gentle, sweet beauty that Hawaii is to me. I have bought several copies of Facing Future to give as Christmas gifts because no other music has brought me such a sense of peace, or relaxed so much and I wanted to share that with people I love. Mahalo, IZ, Mahalo.

We were watching Meet Joe Black and my mother mentioned to me that the only thing she wanted for Christmas this year was the song from the soundtrack…I was on amazon earlier today and that is when I read about Bruddah…I am very sorry… If it means anything to you, his music is all that she wanted for christmas and I bought it for her this morning…

We came across Izzy’s music just within the past couple of years. I’m sorry that you lost a husband, a father, a brother, an uncle, a friend.

We really like his music.

I just want to say what an amazing voice this man had. I have only heard one song and it has touched my life and my heart forever. He had a gift, an anointing on him from God and I am so touched he used that gift. My heart, my hopes, my dreams will forever be changed because I have heard IZ sing Over the Rainbow. It is now my mission in life to let everyone I know hear it at least just once in their lifetime. My 9 month old has no choice though, he will be listening to it with me forevermore. Thank You IZ, keep smiling down upon us.

I have only just found IZ thanks to a radio station playing Over the Rainbow. His voice is truly god given and I wish I had had his music seven years ago. What I’ve missed. I play him everyday and it makes me happy and free from pain. You will never die and thanks for the music

I had just bought the CD facing..It made me feel so good and relaxed.The music is just wonderful. I especially loved the way he sang, Somewhere over the Rainbow.. You don’t know how shocked I was to learn that Israel passed away..I cried, not even knowing him..This just brings tears to my eyes..I was on the internet looking for him because I wanted to tell him how great his music made me feel, and to find out he passed away, just crushed me. I had only heard this song 2 times before which prompted me to buy the CD. God Bless his family and his music is blessing to me…Sharon Haver Tiffin ohio

i first heard IZ from a movie, many kno that is remake of somwhere over the rainbow mixed with what a wonderful world was in 50 first dates. The moment i heard it i fell in love with his voice and beats, i had to have it, and ever since i have been on a search to find that song and more that he sung. I was, however, sad to find that i would have no chance of ever meeting the man behind the WONDERFUL AND BEAUTIFUL voice. He has touched my heart through song, and i am sure he will touch many more.

R.I.P. IZ

back In sept. 2006 I came to Maui for the first time in 56 years of life. I when’t to mele store and got a 8 string ukulele. As we were paying for this my wife took up Israel’s FACING FUTURE CD. This old white man is so humbled by his soul I at this time am playing over the rainbow over and over again so as to play this song as close as I can (can not be done but by Iz) my hart is at a loss for not having been in his life, sad but not all can. GOD BLESS.

Hello,

I was mesmerized when I saw an IZ video on The Tube video channel. It was Over the Rainbow and I was quite amazed that such a beautiful and gentle voice came from such a powerful man. I was quite saddened to see that he had passed at such an early age. I spent some time as a young girl in the Makaha area. My parents had a home there. It makes me feel closer to IZ that I may have spent time in the same place he did growing up. It’s amazing and great to know he is still missed after being gone from this earth for almost 10 years. Thank you for sharing!

On our recent trip to Kona, my wife and I were touched by the wonderful voice of IZ and his music. We purchased his album Facing Future and listen to it to remind us of the ALOHA spirit and beauty of the Islands. His voice and music capture the essence of Hawaii as well as any picture or postcard ever could.

I was viewing a moving tribute to Steve Irwin tonight and was amazed with the song Over the rainbow. I had never heard IZ before and have since searched sites. What a gentle and old soul. His voice is a moving blessing to all who have the privilege to hear. Thank you IZ, I will be looking for your music and it will echo forever.

Cathy in Canada

to all who miss Iz

To Whom It May Concern,

We have recently had the honor to discover Israel’s song styles, and think he was the greatest singer we had ever heard. My wife loves his gentle voice, and is a cancer survivor.

I am a World Class Keyboard Artist, and would love to hear from his family.

My wonderful friend Patsy introduced me to IZ’s music 15 years ago. I live on the mainland and fell in love with her son. Throughout the years Patsy would send us newspaper articles about him and music by him. She loved him so. Patsy died last year at age 72 of cancer. We played Over The Rainbow at her funeral, it was her favorite song. Her ashes were spread in Waimanalo beach as we all sang Over The Rainbow one last time to her. So, as you can see, IZ touched so many hearts of so many ages and many different cultures.

We had a wonderful trip to Hawaii last month (Sept 13-23, 2006 where we played Izzy’s music wherever we went how enjoyable it made the trip. We are still listening to his music on the mainland. So sad that he is no longer with us. Thanks Bruddah IZ for your music you will not be forgotten. You are loved. I am saddened with the loss for his family.

Thanks for sharing his beautiful voice and person with the world-there is so little beauty left in the world and he was the exception and made it beautiful whenever I play his cd’s and watch the videos. I hope his family is well and I especially hope that more recordings will surface and I would love to read a book about that magnificient man and Hawaiian history. I hope his widow and daughter are doing well. I have managed to convey the love of his music and his to my kids and my grandkids. I would have loved to have gone to any of his concerts. The Mainland was never good to Hawaii and he had a classy way of letting us know it. Soverienty to Hawaii is well overdue and richly deserved. Such a big man with such a huge heart. Aloha and Mahalo.

I picked up a CD of Israel Kamakawiwo’ole at my local library, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I never heard of him before. From this CD, and his music, I have been moved beyond words, and tears have been flowing. How could I feel so connected to someone’s music, and the words, who was so far away….on the planet? Ah, it’s the bonding and understanding of the spirit of our brothers and sisters. We understand, without words. I am a Nurse’s Aid at a local, large hospital. I wish I could have given him a big hug, of understanding from the heart. I wish life’s BEST to the whole family and friends, of such a powerful musician, who left us with a very powerful message. I am in awe, of such a fulfilling and rewarding message from a musician with such a powerful message. What a beautiful voice, and what a beautiful spirit. I am blessed tremendously. All my love… Pat Maszun, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA

I have enjoyed Iz’s sound for many years andwhenever i am troubled or stessed I slip in one of his albums and relax for a bit and everything seems to work out.

I hope that his family can find some solis in knowing that Israel is still bringing comfort and a smile to others.

I will write this in spanish, my language. Soy de una isla caribena, Puerto Rico, muchas semejansas nos unen a los hawaianos, por eso me alegro que IZ sea hawaiano y que ame a su tierra como yo amo a mi isla. Nunca habia escuchado de IZ, no sabia de el hasta que escuche somewhere over the rainbow what a wonderful world. Esa musica me cautivo, la paz que proyecta con su guitarrita autoctona es gratificante para el alma. No recuerdo que una melodia y una voz me hayan llenado tanto de tranquilidad y de paz espiritual. Una vez lei su historia me di cuenta que solo una persona como IZ podia producir tanta paz y amor. A su gente, compatriotas y familia, mis respetos y mi admiracion.

I wish to share with Iz’s family and the people of Hawaii how his music has once again affected my life. I first heard IZ’s phenominal voice on the E.R. Farewell episode for Dr. Green. I can use no other word to describe it other than ethereal. Like so many others Iz’s version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow became my favorite. It brings me joy to see it used in so many movies so others can experience and discover Iz’s music. Iz’s Passing is such a loss to the world. My wife and I are adopting 2 foster children. They are brother and sister and both have suffered from constant nightmares and night terrors. For anyone who has been awaken in the middle of the night by the sound of their child screaming and a look of fear on their face can tell you it is heart wrenching. We started playing Somewhere over the rainbow for the kids at bedtime and set to repeat as they sleep. I am blessed to be able to say that the children have slept peacefully for the last 6 weeks. Thank you IZ, your voice was a gift from God.

After hearing this angel voice in Somewhere Over the Rainbow and seeking out the artist, I find Iz too late and already over the rainbow himself…Man, what a waste, I hope and pray that Iz is enjoying the colours in the sky…And I can’t get the song out of my head…Bless Iz!!!

Had heard of Iz some time ago and had listened to snippets of his music…but just made my first trip to Hawaii and saw and heard how loved and popular he is, which made me want more. I brought home his Facing Future album and am wearing it out. That sweet melodious voice is so lovely to hear and it just reaches out and grabs your heart. Thank you all for helping him become the legend he truly is. His voice will go on forever.

My family is in love with IZ…………we ahve been since my wife was dying of cancer. For months while she laid in bed semiconcious we played IZ over and over and over 24×7 for her. She used to live in Hawaii for years and was in love with the islands. Our goal was to go there together but we never made it. However we belive that IZ comforted her during her ordeal and she passed away peacefully and joined IZ and his music. My goal now is to scatter her ashes in Hawaii.

Love You IZ and your music…you are growing more and more in popularity and I turn people on constantly to your music

in a world of pain and suffering, it is so hard to find the love someone needs to continue through life, i cant remember how many times i have thought about giving up. When i first listened to the song ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ tears formed in my eyes and so it does everytime i listen to it. His voice was as close to a choir of angels as it could get, his soul touching music makes me cry and think about all the good things that life has brought us ‘bruddah IZ mainly’ not only do i believe in heaven, i believe that when we die we all will get to hear his voice even more so than on earth.

RIP Bruddah IZ

Wow – I didn’t know who IZ was until I just saw a video of him tonight on ‘The Tube’ video channel. I heard his song ‘Over the Rainbow’ and absolutely loved it. Then I saw on the video that he has passed on from this world. I wish I could have met Israel – I feel like I’ve known him through this one video though. What a fantastic voice and a beautiful soul.

The angelic voice now sings with the angels. First heard his music on the ER episode and so began the love of his music. Thank goodness for modern technology. Because of audio and video we will never loose him or forget him. Mahalo Iz. Me Ke Aloha.

I went to Hawaii for the first time in 2005 and fell in love with the music of IZ. At that time, I didn’t know that he had passed from this world. His music was still so much alive on the islands. I can see how much he was loved and why he was so loved by so many. His music will live on in all of us.

Just over two years ago in 2004, my husband and I first learned of Bruddah IZ from a dear friend of ours. We were about to travel to Hawai’i for some holidays with my family and she gave of us a most treasured gift, Alone in IZ World. As we listen to his voice on the mainland on this most beautiful September evening in 2006, we find ourselves instantly transformed into a state of peace and appreciation for each other and for the world around us. Sending love, Trish Newbold

Israel’s music has touched me to my core. I first heard him in 1998. Since then, he has become my favorite. I play his cd’s at home and in my car. His music never fails to lift my spirit.

To the family of Bruddah IZ, I am 56 years old, and I have just found out who sings the best version of Over The Rainbow. While I am saddened to learn IZ is no longer with us I wish to thank his family and to let them know that Bruddah IZ will live on forever in the music that he gave us, he will not be forgotten. His music will continue to bring peace and happiness for generations to come. Respectfully Fred Regan

I discovered IZ a couple of years ago when a friend sent me Somewhere Over the Rainbow in a compilation. Although it was many years after his passing, his music has put something back into my soul. I can think of now better way for IZ to live on in this plane.

I love IZ music. I have his over the rainbow playing on my space and get to hear him often. We keep looking for his music here in Palmdale, Calif. and can’t seem to find it. My brother’s friend is going to send us a cd from Hawaii. I was working as a face and body painter on Maui for 3 months and fell in love with it there. Bruddah IZ was aloha I wish I would of known him. My brother is dying of cancer now and has all of his cd’s and listens to him often, his magical sound soothes my surfer brother’s soul.

It is only in the past few years that Iz came to my attention when I heard him sing in Finding Forrestor. I had to go back through the credits to see who it was who was singing that beautiful, poignant rendition of Over the Rainbow-What a Wonderful World and found his name. I searched the net and found all of his recordings and they are part of my treasured CD’s. Just from his voice I can tell that he had a beautiful soul and must have been revered by the Hawaian people. I am happy that his voice has come into my life.

I became aware of Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s music only recently, despite years of learning about ancient Hawaiian religion and culture. My favourite selection is Hawai’i ’78! Most of the Hawaiian music I own is that of ceremonial and hula chants. I appreciate his love of his heritage and his connecting traditional and modern music. All celebration of tradition is dear to me, be it my own Irish, Lingala (Zairean), Yoruba-Ibo (Nigerian), Tuscarora- Sioux paternal heritages, the Northern Somali-Arab traditions of AJA and our daughter, and those of all people.

Dear Mr. Sugimoto, Sadly, I came to know about the amazing IZ after his passing, but to me he will always represent the magical, living essence of aloha. I visited my best friend one summer, not long after she had moved from San Francisco to Honoka’a, and I have never been the same. I have a hard time talking about it, but after a lifetime of feeling as though I never fit it, I was embraced by the spirit of aloha and the reverence given so generously to the land and its creatures. I was also introduced to IZ’s music when I kept seeing bumper stickers on people’s cars bearing his image or, simply, ‘IZ.’ He instantly felt like a long lost friend- his ability to sing so beautifully was only shadowed by his generosity of spirit. When I need to be reminded of hope and grace I listen to IZ with gratitude. His ‘Hawai’i78’ (I believe that is the title) gives me chills every time I hear it. I wish so much I had been able to meet him, but for now I can listen to his music, hear him saying ‘Mahalo nui to all of you. To Hawai’ians, and Hawai’ians at heart.’ and i can be greatful that I will never think of Hawai’i without thinking of him.

Thank you so very much for having this web site. It is a great way to express sadness for the loss of an angel, and to celebrate his magic. your friend,

Leslie

It has been a few years I have been interested in this man’s wonderful work and I look in the right places today and finally foulnd his work on the other side of the world in a Barnes and Noble here in Charleston, SC. As I sat drinking my coffee I felt my tears well up in my eyes as I read Jon de Mello’s intro in the Alone in the World’.Album. I only knew his work from the movie soundtracks and the few samples I just listened to at the kiosk. Now I feel like I just blinked and only got to see only a short streak of the life of this wonderful shooting star. Few times I make decisions in my life for the good. I feel like today I made a decision that has enriched my life and made me more appreciative of the sense of hearing. My condolences got out to all of IZ’s family and to the world for the loss of such a gem in the diamond mine of life.

From the moment I heard IZ’s music I was taken to an enchanting place in my spirit! He inspired me to learn the Ukulele and (try) to sing in Hawaiian. I only regret that IZ is no longer with us. At true loss to Hawai’i and the world.

Mahalo Bruddah.

It seems that the people whos music I love are dead. Be it Louis Armstrong, Bob Marley, Kurt Kobain, Brad Nowell, and Bruddah IZ. We all love their music and there musical influence, whether or not we know it, we listen to stuff everyday that has been influenced by these guys one way or another. And I belive I speak for the world when I say we will miss you. You all have given your life for the music you loved, so that others might hear and appreciate the same way you did. Your memory will live on wether its in the hearts of the people you touched or in the ears of new ones. Thank You

I’ve been arguing with my girlfriend a lot lately and listening to over the rainbow earlier on the radio made me feel quite emotional and made me realise that our arguments are so petty and pointless. This song reminds me of my girlfriend as i watched the film with her for the first time. I can listen to it over and over, ive never heard such a touching singing voice in my life. I didn’t even know who it was sung by until today. I didn’t even know what Iz looked like. Now i do… i just want to say thanks to Iz for touching me with this song nearly 10years after his death. RIP!!

I was first touched by this beautiful voice last year when I got married in Maui. Over the rainbow was one of the songs that was on our wedding video. I just purchased the CD Alone in IZ World and listened to it for the first time today. When Iz talked about his family dying it was the first time I have felt any sense of peace since my 17 year old son and only child died in 1998. Who knew that someone I never met that lived on the other side of the world and died way to soon, would be the one to make me feel like it’s going to be okay after all. Thank you for your music and your message. Like countless other people I hope to meet you some day in IZ world.

I guess I’m late onto the scene but I wanted to speak about how moving Iz’s voice is to me. An absolute thing of beauty and grace. I listen to the albums and feel so much. His music and words have created in me a sadness and love simultaneously. It engenders a feeling of love for the Hawaiian people and the beautiful islands and their traditions. Just hearing the language moves me in a way I don’t quite understand. The changing times and loss of culture and lands that he communicates so well brings sadness, and not just for the Hawaiian people but all cultures who are struggling to hold on to their heritage. Thank you Iz for the gift you brought that keeps on giving. Genene

Oh my Sweet Lord, NO. How sad, how truly sad it comes, as here I was putting aside some time tonight, for the sole purpose of jumping a board, and ride upon the web waves to learn more about Israel Kamakawiwo ole, to whom blessed all with-in an ear shot, with his incredible gift of rare natural ability, the kind only a few have ever possessed.

Tears began to well up to one’s eyes, and a hollow pit began to form in there in one’s heart, as it was only after reviewing the third link in my Google search, that I was led here to this memorial

Once I arrived here, it was with a deep heavy breath, and I was touched by the outpouring of love, and sentiment from those he had touched in his special, caring ways. I then observed the image of his unique and beautiful gaze of deep reflection, and I noticed the dates we were given in honor to the time IZ shared his gifts of life here on Earth.

I was surprised in finding that nearly 10 years gone by since his passing, and so young, as he was born 6 months before me, and I am now only 46. Even so, as it still comes in a realization that has just come to me, it comes unto one of admiration, and yanked upon the emotions, just as if it had sadly happened yesterday, due to my only recent awareness to this beautiful persons gifts.

Though, I had for years heard on many commercials, those soothing, and very familiar Ooo Ooo Ooo Ooo I hadnt known before that moment came at the end of my viewing the movie 50 first Dates when I heard anything following them and there, at that moment, I was frozen within the near haunting tones and vocals as they were connected to the most incredible rendition of original interpretation to an already known musical composition that I have ever heard before or since.

It all came way too short lived however, as the end credits of that movie only played a small portion of it, and left me wanting more. So I contacted Isis who is one of my beautiful Cousins whos Father is Hawaiian and is one to whom has stayed strong in spirit to Her Island Traditions and one who carries Her heritage with great pride.

With her help, I was able to find a vast and remarkable body of work by IZ, and to whom had always came to sing the truths with-in any song, from those stories from in his heart, that always come to touch the soul. It was just moments later that I was surrounded there with-in the sounds filling the air with the gifts that could only be created from within a pure hearts joy. Getting to Know this beautiful music, while listening to it in a relaxed position and ones eyes closed truly allows its special gifts to lift up a person up to another place. Sometimes it was as if his spirit was actually leading us the to his perfect place of harmony, and many times had me dancing atop the clouds, as I followed truly believed I was being illuminated by the brilliance of a souls given light.

IZ will forever be missed , and be loved by those he had touched. Sadness and sorrows given to him there from our hearts to his, and would never come to be something soothing upon his soul, and though difficult to do when just being aware of his loss, just bring to him the continued joy from all that you feel from the special way he gave it unto us.

Aloha, Muhalo, and PEACE

Dear Marlene and Family, I first heard Iz’s Over the rainbow in June of 2006. I researched it till I found the CD ,IZ Alone in the World, which I recieved today, thru Best Bye. I just want you to know how deeply I felt his music, and how sorry I am he died 9 years ago. I have been very touched by his music, so he lives in people far away still, after all these years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Christine Babiasz

I love his song Mona Lisa… I played Somewhere Over The Rainbow at my grandfather’s funeral and it lifted my spirits. His voice was truly enchanting, although I was still crying, his voice made me feel like everything was going to be alright. Deepest sorrow and heart-felt hug,

Marissa Marie Gutierrez

I was introduced to IZ music by a very dear friend in Sausalito ,CA January 2003. Since that time I have played his music almost daily. The purity of his voice and his emotional inflection never cease tugging at my heart. As a person who has enjoyed many types of music over the almost six decades of my life there is no other musician who has impacted my life as much as dear IZ. I mourn his death as if he were my blood brother. I feel we are truly fortunate to have had such a man share his talent and positively affect our lives. I am saddened that he had such a brief time among us. I wish he had more time to make more music and to be with the family and friends who love him. Jean Jung

It is now 2006, and I have just discovered the rare talent of Iz. I love his sweet, beautiful voice. It has such a calming effect. I had to go out and buy all of his albums and DVD’s. His music is the only music I play now. Every time I play his music (I play it at work, at home, and in the car) I think to myself, what a shame that such a beautiful person has passed. What a terrible waste of talent. I first heard him sing Over the Rainbow at the end of the movie, Fifty First Dates. I had to know who this was. Well, I’ve been listening to Iz exclusively ever since. I would have loved to have seen him singing in person and to have E-mailed him. I hope his music will continue to be played so more and more people can enjoy is beautiful voice.

Bruddah IZ, or Izzy as I called you when I wasn’t calling you my Bruddah. You died while I was away and I never got to say good-bye… I know that someday I will get to say Hello to you in the heaven of our Father. You were touched by the hand of God and given a voice that helped to inspire many,many lives through out your short lifetime here in the place that you were meant to be… God Bless you my Bruddah, my friend and my inspiration to keep on, keeping on. When I struggle with life living on life’s terms I think of you and your words and memories inspire me to go on….

Thankyou Bruddah, always and forever……….peace.

I’d only discovered Isreal’s music about a year ago..where have I been? I have only one CD Facing Future and must have played it a thousand times. It will be played many times more than that. He had a beautiful voice and as I listen to it sing of love for his beloved Hawaii, my heart breaks that I only discovered him after he left us. I am sure it has been said before, but his music will live through those that loved him and play his music, over and over again. God Bless his soul and bless his family, friends and fans.

I have been hearing this beautiful music everywhere and I could not find out what it was called or who it was. Finally, I figured out that it was IZ’s music. I downlaoded it and listen to it all the time. I love his voice. He sings from the heart.

i first heard this fantastic beautiful voice on radio 1 in the united kingdom 2006. i was automatically transfixed by the sweet melody of a song many times covered although i had no idea that israel had passed away to my shock and sadness.

we had a beautiful singer in the uk called eva cassidy who passed away herself a while ago who also had a beautiful voice and covered this song.

this is a beautiful mix of two songs that have meaningful words.

im sorry to learn of the passing of israel and can only say that once i had heard the over the rainbow – wonderful world version he sang, i will never forget it.

you have a voice of an angel and now you sit amongst them R.I.P.

My dear friends I am sorry that you lost a great member of your family. I had never known of his singing until about a year ago. I heard him sing one of the most beautifullest songs I ever heard anyone sing in my entire life. It was the Over the Rainbow song. My God I had chill bumps, tears, and such a big lump in my throat that I could hardly swallow. I saw him singing on one of the music stations I think on television but don’t know which one it was. You all were truly very fornutate to have had him in your life. I know you probably miss him still so much but I’m sure you know he is with you wherever you may be. Could you please let me know where to buy his music. I have missed out on so much I’m sure. May you and your family be blessed all throughout your lives in all that you do. Your friend Shirley A.

In Sweden there are only one song available and that is What a wonderful world. His performence of that song goes straight into my heart exactly in the same way that Eva Cassidy did with the same song. I will try to find more music of this amazing singer. The music will still live.

Finally made it the Islands this year. A life long dream. While at Hilo Hatties, I was looking for some traditional Hawaiian music. I found IZ. Back at the hotel room, as I listened to this CD, I was mesmerized. I wanted more. As I began to net surf I learned of his premature death. I sat on my bed and cried all night. Cried for a man whom I have never met. How odd! I now own all his music that is available. I cannot explain why or how his music moves me. I cry. I get homesick for the Islands. I wish I had met the man. I know I will meet him on the other side. Thanks to all the other posters who help me learn more about this wonderful person, IZ!

Somewhere over the rainbow has inspired me to find and listen to more of Israels music, I cannot wait.

I am not sure if you are aware that Radio 1 (largest radio station in the UK) in the United Kingdom has talked a record label into releasing Somewhere Over the Rainbow…..apparently it will be released early next month.

I personally can only see this record going straight to the top of the UK charts and making Israel music available to more people who have not had the pleasure to hear his words.

God bless Israel.

Russell.

I, like others only discovered Israel’s incredibly melodic voice after a commercial or movie (sad it was this way but better than not knowing). Hearing his version of Over the Rainbow, I always wondered who sang this unbelievable cover. I have always been awestruck by the song’s simple yet magical flow. I finally had to know more.

Being a father of a 22 month daughter, I have been writing and putting certain songs aside that I hope to give her in later years. The words and music will attempt to show how much love I feel for her at this moment so she can hopefully understand my feelings during these early years of her life. Mr. Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of Over the Rainbow captures my inner most feelings since it touches me like very few songs ever have.

Not knowing anything about Israel, I researched him and was shocked and saddened to hear of his untimely passing nine years ago last month. When I play Over the Rainbow and hear Israel’s passion and sadness merged as one, I get so moved I am choked up with tears (and I’m in my forty’s). After reading an article I located by San Francisco Chronicle writer Jack Boulware written in 2005, I found out that this is just what people all over the world did and still do today when they hear this song as well as others by Iz. If it really was a demo tape that Israel cut late one night as the article says, then it is even more incredible since it was obviously straight from his heart and soul.

Thank you for reading my simple story of how I discovered Iz’s gift to the world. I plan to listen to more of his music and learn more of his life. Peace…

I first heard of IZ music through the movie soundtrack of 50 first dates since then i have looked for the over the rainbow version he does, because being a judy garland fan and i love the movie wizaed of oz, i thought his rendition has been the best by far, better than the original…i was finally able to find the artist who sings this song, but was saddend to read of his passing. there is a site you can sample all his music on allofmp3.com…

I am from England and have only just discovered the music of Israel Kamakawiwoole. BBC Radio 1 played Somewhere Over The Rainbow Wonderful World at the beggining of this week and i instantly fell in love with the song. since then i have wanted to know more and more about Iz and his music.

What a voice, What a man, What a loss!!!

I would love to hear of his songs released in England!

Aloha & howz it!! I am currenly living in Japan on a Navy base with my husband & 2 boys. This is my first time living away from Honolulu, Oahu. My heart & prayers goes out to Bruddah Iz’s Ohana! May Bruddah Iz’s music touch the Hawaiians & Hawaii people who moved away from our Island Hawaii. I am a hula dancer out here along with a few Hawaii ladies. We dance to Bruddah Iz’s songs..& ohh it touches many people who are from & also not from Hawaii. Mahalo Nui Loa Bruddah Iz for letting our Hawaiian culture live through your beautiful music. Your ancestors & our Hawaiian Gods including the lord must all be proud of you!! A Hui Hou

I have just recently been introduced to this type of music and I have to say it is really great. I am only 18 and it helps me forget about the stresses of life. This music helps me in a way nothing ever can. Anyway nice site and I hope to see it grow into more.

I live in cold, yucky Ohio but EVERY time I hear Iz sing Over the Rainbow I feel the ocean breeze on my face, hear the waves, feel my toes in the sand and see the many rainbows so common in Hawaii. I feel happy and at peace. I never met Iz but I love him all the same. What a wonderful man he must have been. He is watching over all of us with a big smile on his face.

IZ is a guy will be remembered forever in my heart and mind as one of the greatest singers ever. His rich, deep voice rings always in my head. Whenever I’m sad, I listen to his music and it always cheers me up. At my school’s graduation ceremony, they did a slide show with pictures of the year. And the song they played was Over the Rainbow by our very own, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. But at that moment, I started to cry. Not only was I reflecting back on my year, but how well the song went with everything. That song seems like it’s meant to tell people to reflect on their life and how lucky they are, and that somewhere over the rainbow of good that we have, there’s someone who’s in greater need than us. Deep down inside all of his songs, I find a moral. What I think IZ was trying to do was to make good music have a lesson to it. All in all, we love you IZ, and we’ll miss you.

I’ve just heard Somewhere Over The Rainbow-What A Wonderful World for the first time, played on the radio on Radio 1 here in the UK and was quite overcome at such a beautiful song.

I was so sorry to find out he’s no longer with us. To his widow and children, I hope it’s a comfort to know that his music has the extraordinary power to move people so much. I have little doubt that as his song was playing on the radio half the country stopped to listen, meeting at a special place we rarely go.

Take Care

The first time I heard Somewhere over the Rainbow by Iz it had an amazing effect on me. We heard it again when at a friend’s funeral they played the song accompanying a power point of the person’s life. What a beautiful song and all along I had no idea who recorded it. Today I went online to find out, as no one I asked knew either up here in Canada. I intend on buying a CD now and appreciated reading about this man Iz. Wish I’d been aware of him before, when he was still alive. It isn’t often a song touches one’s heart like this one. Iz was a gifted man!

I really enjoy his music. The first time i heard him was at the end of ,Meet Joe Black, while they rolled the credits it put my new born baby to sleep. After that I down-loaded mere of his music because you can’t find it in a store, at least not were i live. His music is very calming and beautiful. My family and I really enjoyit. Thank you Israel.

I never knew this man existed until I was given a copy of Wind beneath my wings It was from this site that I found out he had passed away My deepest condolences to his family With a voice like his and our technology he was able to reach out to the people and remind us of the beauty that still exists in this world It was a sad day when he passed but I am sure he is in heaven appointed by God to teach the angels how sing May the gift that God gave us for a short time be remembered always

Came across his music while vacationing in Maui this last week. Bought his Alone In IZ World CD after recalling his awesome version of Over The Rainbow at the end of a movie.

Researched him further, and was sorry to hear he had passed on….but passed on some beautiful music.

Our sympathies to his family.

Bruddah IZ was quite an amazing singer. I came across his music a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved it. It was on my church’s men’s retreat and now the song means a ton to me. Thank you IZ for showing us the beauty in music again.

I’m a Master Control Operator in Columbus,GA. We run a music video station out of one of our digital signals and the other day I seen this video. Well I caught the end of it. So I looked for it everywhere and finally it played again. I now know nothing about this guy but I found this guest book and I realized he was a great man. If only more people had the heart and soul this man had the world would be a better place. You can just look in his face and tell he cared. Long live IZ. Amen

Recently my mom took a trip to Hawaii and i asked her to bring me back a ukulele… not only did she bring me that but she also brought me an IZ songbook and DVD. I immidietely fell in love with this type of music. IZ has such passion for it and you can really tell in his voice. whenever i need to relax i throw his cds on and picture myslef on the beach… i love the hawaiian way of life and i want to live there someday. id like to give my greatest thanks to his family and his spirit.

Up until 4 years ago I had never heard of Iz. I heard one of his songs on KPOA in Maui and went straight to Walmart to purchase a CD. I bought 4 that day. I listen to Iz whenever I need a little ALOHA. Thanks for the music.

I’ll come at this from another direction. I was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas. The Wizard of OZ has always been one of my favorites (everywhere I’ve gone it has always been Dorothy, TOTO, and the magic slippers). Judy Garland’s rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow has always been special to me. I have not heard any other versions I’ve liked until Sam Harris on Star Search (I saw that show).

I too saw 50 First Dates and enjoyed the music during the credits. I didn’t know who played or sang the music. I soon forgot the movie. Every now and then I would hear a clip of a ukulele and reflect upon the music I heard and liked, but could not remember the name of the movie or the artist who sang. I had gone to Block Buster, Family Video, and a host of other video stores trying to describe the music to the workers to see if they knew the movie – to no avail.

Last week my daughter sent a picture video of our new grandson and sank in the background was the song I have been searching for – for years. I immediately did a search on the internet, then in our local music stores. I have it now – Somewhere Over the Rainbow-What a Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

I have it now (along with other wonderful pieces of music) only to find out that the artist with the soft voice and sincere, pervasive message is no longer with us. I and my family enjoy his gift. Thank you for sharing.

May his family be an eternal family – CTR.

I’m so saddened by his loss. Just tonight after watching 50 First Dates for the hundreth time, I paused the movie long enogh to write down Isreal’s name then I went on iTunes looking for his music. I purchased several songs from several of his lp’s. I then wanted to write to Isreal to tell him just how much I enjoy his music. I’m so sorry for your loss. Isreal’s voice is so beautiful and his music will live on for ever. God Bless, Janell

We first heard IZ’s music with the movie 50 first dates and since have sought out more and more. We just can’t get enough of that sweet and beautiful sound. Even though he is gone, he continues to touch people with his music.

I have to listen to Somewhere Over the Rainbow over and over again. What a beautiful version of that song and such a beautiful voice. I want this song for my kids. This is perfect for them to fall asleep to and to put on their home video. What a blessing to have had this man make such wonderful music. Such a gift from God.

I recently fell in love with his music. I did not know he had passed away until tonight. I listened to his live cd the other day, and I remember him talking about getting email. I wanted to say Aloha. I would have loved to see him live. I leave this posting on June, 26 2006. Mahalo â nui Brian Piel

I had the blessing of living on Maui in 2000 and that is when I discovered Iz. Iz and his music help me when I am sad and miss my aina. I have all his cds and I listen to them almost every day. He brings peace and love to the world. I am so thankful to have had the chance to live in Hawaii and capture the spirit it has. Isreal Kamakawiwo’ole has given us a great gift with his music and I am so grateful to be able to share it with other people.

Iz found a place in my heart many years ago when a friend played one of his vinyl LPs for me. While watching the movie 50 First Dates it was wonderful to hear him again while it also rekindled the pain and sadness of losing such a splendid artist so soon. While the world has many talented people who will in turn make their marks, I feel certain that Iz will continue to be discovered by many generations and never fade away. And that, as we all know, is as close to immortality as we are allowed to get.

First of all. excuse me of my bad english gramma….im not english originated and therefor do not present myself in the best way. I first came into contact with IK .israel kamakawiwo ole. music when i heard the music on the endings of Meet Joe black. I was petrified to say the least. Never had i heard a music compositian, that filled m heart with so many emotions.i felled happy, sad, joyfull, enlighted and with a feeling that i couldnt and cant explain. It has now been about a year since i heard IK music for the first time. 3 months ago my father died, and because i had to be the strong one in the family, i didnt have time and place to feel sorrow, and at the months goes past i never did. But today, when i heard somewhere over the rainbow i felt like I had a place to cry, and let out my anger, wrath and sorrow. Not that i think its a sad song, but just wake some emotions inside me, that i can reach myself, and that truly extraordinary for a song to do. And therefor I also became sad when I found out that IK died in 1997…..you have my innermost deeply condolences.

the only episode i ever watched of E.R. i heard Somewhere over the rainbow wonderful world.To say i loved it is an understatement.I was drawn towards it.the feeling the depth and smoothnes of this mans voice can not be described.I tried every since to find who sang that version,as i really never cared for the song before.Finally watching an Adam Sandler movie Fifty first dates iheard it again.I jumped out of my chair THATS IT THATS IT!!! I yelled at my wife! What,she asked. THe song that has been haunting me for these past few years.I paused the credits and found the name.after going in numerous music stores i finaly know ISRAEL KAMAKAWIWO’OLE,Brother IZ or Bruddah IZ.I went on line got all cd’s avalible.I was very sad to learn of His un timely passing.I know the felling that he sang with has touched many people.God bless you Bruddah.It’s more of a Wonderful World with you have being in it.

I did get the pleasure of living in Hawaii for about a year and fell in love with the people and culture. Listening to his music with the way he put himself into every song makes me long for the Islands again. Like so many others I didn’t get the chance to enjoy his music while he was here with us but I do thank him for what he has given us all.

over that rainbow has been a deeply touching point of resonance for me. My best buddy got back from Iraq two weeks ago, out of out-processing two days ago, I ship in a week, oorah infantry…..the medley hurts in a rather inarticulately severe way, thus the lyrics, what a wonderful world, really suck for me, but I try to think to myself thus.

I always liked all types of music…mostly classic rock n roll, but his voice and music not only reaches to your heart it goes right into your soul. I first heard it at my daughter’s graduation ceremony as the class was walking onto the stage…there’s not enough words to describe how great of an artist and singer Isreal is. Your music will stay with me the rest of my GOD chosen life and will be passed on to my family and friends. May GOD bless you and your family.

I have just discovered Israel, and am overwhelmed by his spirit. His love and concern for his native land comes over clear and strong.

I have always felt a connection to Hawaii,though never been previously. I find his music is both haunting and magical. It truly touches me and I can almost feel myself being swept away to beautiful Hawaii.

In his last track 15 Hawaii 78 he seems to tell the tragic tale of what Hawaii has become with outsiders who have taken over, yet he seems to still be able to find his Hawaii through all of the changes and if not peace then acceptance.

Please find comfort to know I live very far from Hawaii yet his words and music somehow found me and has brought beauty into my life. May 2006

After hearing Brother Iz songs on the Coast To Coast AM radio talk show, I bought every album I could find. I was so moved by his music.

Then, I was shocked to learn he had died. I couldnt stop crying it had been a long time since a singer had moved me as he did. He is very much missed here in my heart. I hope that our Father enjoys him as much as we do.

My husband was born and raised in the Makaha Waianae area. We love Iz! We listen to him everytime we start to miss the islands. His voice and music makes my husband feel like he is home. Our wedding song was N Dis Life. Bless Iz and his family. We love you.

I heard Somewhere over the Rainbow What a Wonderful Life and just had to track down that fantastic voice. Have been listening to Facing Future everytime I get in the car and love every song. Sorry I will never have the chance to hear IZ perform in person. So glad he left a wonderful legacy of his talent, passion and love of Hawaii reflected in his timeless music.

I never heard of IZ until the CSI epsiode when I heard him sing Somewhere Over The Rainbow. I downloaded like thirty versions of the song before I found his. I have been listening to it non stop. It has quickly become my favorite song. When I made copies of the cd for my friends, they freaked when they heard the song, because they were looking for it themselves, they just did not know who sang it. I am sad to learn of IZs passing, but wherever I go in life, I am taking his music with me. I will make darn sure that he is never forgotten. I only wish I could have met him. Me meeting IZ would be like a lot of people, meeting Paul McCartney. But I just wanted to say thank you IZ for your beautiful voice and wonderful music. You truly were an incredible person. This site is a fantastic tribute to him. I am glad I found it.

I visited Hawaii just a few weeks ago and heard the song Over the Rainbow that I had heard recently when I watched 50 dates with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. I fell in love with the voice of the singer that I had to get it. Then in the store in Hawaii I heard it and got the CD and bought it. When I had ask the clerk if he is doing any concerts here. He had told me that he had passed away about 7 years ago. That night I had listened to the whole CD and Cried for the whole duration of his CD songs. Bruddah IZ your songs are like the Hawaiian angels that come from the ocean to the shores. Mahalo for all your beautiful songs and your voice that carries the tunes into our hearts.

As I hit the Post Your Memory key for the last entry, my computer on which no music has ever been stored or played, suddenly began playing the songs on IN DIS LIFE. I sat and listened in stunned silence as the vibs of IZ flowed through my being. His family is to know how happy he is to be in a place where he can do so much good for our world. Powerful spirits are helping him to reach through to us. His music and his voice contain so many loving vibrations that no human can listen without being moved. He is surrounded by the spirits of the ancients and the Gods that were created by Hawaiians. I am only a Hawaiian at Heart IZ, but I Thank you again….You are a Wonder of both worlds.

Met a wonderful spirit while flying into the islands in 2004. Did not know his name or talent. With my wife on anniversary trip. In a bookstore she motioned me come listen and handed me earphones. Been listening to IZ ever since. What a marvelous spirit to send all of us his love and harmony through music that is both mysterious and enchanting. Thank You IZ… We will be hearing much more from him in The Future…

eu assiti o filme 50 First Dates e gostei muito da musica tocada no final e foi uma pena saber que o dono daquela voz, que interpretava tao bem Over de Rainbow ja havia falecido. Mas os anjos devem estar gostando muito, o cara tinha talento. Fique com Deus.

I first became familiar with IZ a few years ago and like many others who enjoy music with melody, sung by gifted singers, I was amazed at his musical talent and his ability to elicit such emotion from his songs. Last night, April 18, 2006, one of the performers on American Idol, Chris, performed What a Wonderful World and that brought back wonderful memories of IZZY. I decided that it was time for me to get some of his music to enjoy in years to come, I am ordering some of his CDs so that I can enjoy his music for years to come. JB P.S. Best Wishes to his family and friends.

My husband and I lost our infant son 2 years ago and Izs music helped us through our grieving. I find his voice so soothing, beautiful and moving. I am not the only one moved to tears by his voice-definitely a gift from God. I believe he is in heaven, moving angels to tears with his voice and music.

My heart goes out to his wife, daughter and family suffering through the loss of such a beloved man. There will never be another voice like Izs!

Wow… Im not sure whose idea it was to put this song in 50 first dates, but this has exposed your music to a wider audience. It took me forever to find out who sang Over the Rainbow and I know you have a lot of other songs but this one for me makes me well up when I hear it for no reason. No ones shear voice ever made that happen. It sounds crazy but this version seems like its the kind that could be the song of World Peace. God Bless and I hope to meet you and your Brother on the otherside.

Las mejores cosas del mundo se me han presentado siempre por culpa de la fuerza mas poderosa del Universo… la Casualidad, y a ella le agradezco el haber descubierto a IZ. No fui a ver 50 primeras citas al cine, pero un dia la pusieron en el canal de pago. La pelicula me gusto, pero lo mejor vino cuando llego la escena final en el barco y una voz especial consiguio hacerme sentir un nudo en la garganta y estuve tarareando todo el dia. El resto os lo podeis imaginar, internet es muy util para investigar. Mis mejores deseos para la familia de este MUSICO, asi, con mayusculas. Un abrazo.

I was working in a shop sanding trim when the radio started playing Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I came completely undone…tears running down my dusty face. I swear I cried for Iz and all the ones who have passed before us. Something healed inside me that day, Thank you IZ.

Your music flows like the waves of the ocean through me when I dance. I am grateful and humbled that you gifted us with so much beauty. Thank you for sharing your spirit with us through your songs, it has helped me heal. My own beloved Debbie crossed last year. Now the wonderful art of the Goddess Pele, that she collected while living on the mainland, graces my own walls. When I gave birth to my daughter, she took me on a guided journey to her beloved land. While neither of us is a native, we understand who our Mother is.

Thank you again for everything. May the ancients and or ancestors bless you.

Maya

Me and my fiance came across the song Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World after watching the movie 50 First Dates. I remember hearing the song and thinking it was amazing. It wasnt until about a month ago that I saw it on tv and set the Tivo to record the movie. Again the song moved me so much. I began looking for the soundtrack of the movie and came up empty handed. Then one night my Fiance woke me from bed and told me I had to hear something. He pressed play on the computer and my ears were filled with the wonderful sound of Israels voice, we danced the entire time the song played, I was speechless. I plan to play the song at our wedding this October. If his friends and family read the messages fans write, what a joy it must bring to see so many people touched by Israel. He is truly amazing. God Bless him, his Family and Friends and thanks for sharing him with the world.

I knew very little about IZ until recently,I am captivated by his music which brings me to tears to hear his sweet voice.I did not know he was gone and now although nine years ago I shall mourn in my own way.Rest in peace a man with the voice of angels.

I Just found out about Iz and I LOVE his music! I wish I would have known about him sooner. Over the Rainbow is probably the most beautiful song I have ever heard! I LOVE IT! My condolences. He seems like he is a wonderful man.

Just a short note to let you and your family know how inspiring IZs songs are to me. I suffered the loss of my home from Hurricaine Katrrins. My mother died shortly thereafter. She loved IZs Somewhere Over the Rainbow like so many others. I listen frequently to his music during these troubled and get a great spritual uplift from themo. He left such a gift to us all. God bless you and all of your family. Ralph Grimaldi

While visiting on Oahu in 2000 I went shopping at Sams Club and wanted some music to listen to while driving around the island and wanted it to be pure Hawaiian music. I discovered Bruddah IZs CD and decided to try that. I can honestly say that I was brought to tears while listening, his music was so wonderful and his voice unbelievable. I have since purchased all CDs available of his music and enjoy to this day just sitting and listening to him sing. The world has lost one true artist and wonderful singer. May his memory live on in all who get the opportunity to listen. May you rest in piece and may your spirit watch over the islands forever.

When I first Braddah IZ I was impressed by the way he sung. It was so hunting. And I as I listned to his other recordings I could hear him speak to me through his words. He was not just a Hawaiian muscian, but a man with heart and a passion for music. When he sung his words came alive and it moved like the wind blowing over the Pali. I am for ever thank for Braddah IZ he helped me realize what one person can do to change the world in which he lives. May he rest in Peace.

We heard IZs music for the first time on our honeymoon trip to Hawaii. You must be so proud. What passion he possessed for what life was and should be. His voice and heart seemed to convey all.

I just recently came to know about IZ through my Hawaii magazine, and they mentioned the Over the Rainbow song that he sings. I love that song. I immediately ordered the Facing Future album from Hilo Hatties website and fell in love with it. We visited the islands in late January and early February, and I believe I bought all of his CDs and 2 DVDs that I could find. I wish I had been able to attend one of his concerts when he was alive. I am sure he is so missed in Hawaii, but I know his music lives on. When I listen to his music I feel Aloha every time. We are fans! Best wishes to all of you!

I didn’t know about Israel’s music until I recently heard his version of “over the rainbow” and I was immediately hooked. I only wish, along with the rest of his fans, he was still around to make more. Much love and sympathy.

Ten years ago my sister gave me a compliation tape and on it was quite a few tunes by our beloved Bruddah Iz. I have never been to Hawaii ( To Expensive, ya know) and don’t live in a area with many Islanders, but as a father now with two beautiful Keiki’s. I feel indepted to the man who couldn’t in a million years dream of the impact he had on the people touched by his music and life. He brought the Islands and spirit into our home. I Know that the kindness, inspiration, and love Bruddah IZ left has been a catalist to the love and Aloha my family and I share with each other and all those we come in contact with.

Mahalo nui loa, Aloha Ya Bruddah Kamae

I just recently came across Israel’s music. While looking for the ER version of “Over the rainbow” on the enternet, not knowing who sang if or anything. Just guessing, I found it much to my surprise. Israel had a very calming voice, I was sadden to find out he had passed. It’s times like this that I am very greatfull to live in thess times, for we can preserve so much, and make many memories. I was so dilited to here Israel’s version of Twinkle Twinkle little star, my grand daughters favorite song. I don’t know if it is allowed, but I would very much like to teach it to them with the Hawaiian words. If it is allowed, can you please tell me where I can find the lyrics, and how to pronounce the Hawaiian words?

Thank you in advace for you help and understanding. And thank you for allowing us to exprese our sentiments. May Jehovah God bless you and give you strength. Thank you again.

Your late coming fan

Maria

I lost my 18-year old son last month and IZ’s music is getting me through. I listen for hours each day. I hope and pray that they have met and are “hanging” on the other side.

IZ, I wish I could have met you. Thank you for your soul and your incredible music. I know your worries and pains are over – the only bright side to losing your greatness off of this earth. Thank you for who you are. I love you, man.

Bruddah IZ, Like they say, Bruddah was Bigger than Life!!! I was stationed at home during your passing from 94-97. During that time I was blessed to witness a few of your concerts. Yes, your voice was Angelic as an Angel’s. I currently reside in the PNW where there are quite a few Hawaiians and Hawaiians at heart. We come together as one Big Ohana several times a year. And yes, do believe it. We do make dedications and give our appreciation to our Beloved “HAWAIIAN SUPPAH MAN”. I have been practically gone from home now since I joined the Military back in “87” but everytime I pick up my “UKE” I Always make it a habit to play many of songs “IN MEMORY OF BRUDDAH IZ!!!” Bruddah you are truly a Legacy and will never be forgotten!!!

YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT BELIVE THIS, but as I am writing this I am listening to my TV’s hawaiian music channel. SO HELP ME GOD, at the very moment I finished typing the last paragraph, Iz’ sweet voice came on: “Brother of mine, where can you be?”

That’s enough for me, Iz IS over MY rainbow. Soon bruddah, I WILL be “coming home to thee!”

Till we then meet, tanks fo da good times cuz! Mahalo & Aloha Sweet Bruddah! We miss you!!!

Sadly, as we do with so many of our treasures, I, at least, took Iz pretty much for granted. Nevering knowing the man personally, he was “just” another wonderful Hawaiian artist that enriched my life. Since his passing, I of course, with so many others, now realize what a truely special person he was, to have been able to convey so much to us simply by singing his songs. Not many artists can touch so many of us, so very deeply.

I stay Kauai. We get plenty rainbows here. Since Iz’ passing, they have taken on even additional beauty, knowing Iz is ‘over’ them, out there somewhere.

If you want to know Hawaii, listen to Iz! Iz IS Hawaii.

So long now, can it really be, seems like only yesterday. All these feeling from all over the world, what a tribute, and they continue to come in eight years later. After reading them, I sit here with tears on my cheeks and even my chest, once again realizing the tremendous lost we have experienced

I moved to Kauai in ’87 and Iz’ music became part of my family’s Hawaiian experience. We once played an Iz CD everyday while vacationing on the mainland. My wife, Terry; son, Nick; & daughter Danielle, all sang along, learning all the words to every song. We never tired of Iz’ voice and music, I think it kept us in touch with home. We probably wore out that CD!

While driving to work, for the first time ever, I heard Iz’s version of “Over the Rainbow” on X-M radio.

Overcome with its emotion and listening to wonderful voice and spirit, my eyes filled with tears of memories of Hawaii and what the place means to me and my family.

Rest in peace, brother Iz.

Iz is gone but never to be forgotten. We can’t think of anyone but his music when we think of Hawaii and it’s soul. We are hunting for a concert or show where someone is singing his music, and has kept his sound alive. No one can sing as he did… Tell us who, when and where. GOD Bless Israel’s family and everyone who was apart of his life. The loss had to be so great. Hope we hear from someone~! Thanks!!

My introduction to IZ was @ my sister’s funeral in 2002. “Over the Rainbow” plays over in my mind as the family listened to it as we entered the church. Another sister has family links in Hawaii. What a loss when Iz departed this world. I pray he is “over theRainbow”, enjoying that beautiful life! Mahalo!

Like others, I too tracked down the beautiful voice singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World” – both favorites of mine. What a blessing to find them together sung by one of the most touching and heartfelt voices I’ve ever heard. Blessings and peace to the Kamakawiwo’ole family and to the many, many fans, old and new.

I was taken with IZ’s voice the first time I heard “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/It’s a Wonderful World”. I e-mailed the radio station to find out who the artist was. Looked him up on the net, and here I am!

Even though I´m from Germany (and come to Hawai’i for vacation only), this great man with his great music made and still makes me understand “real Hawai’i” better than anyone else could. Aloha!

First time I heard IZ’s voice and song “Somewhere over the rainbow/what a wonderful world” was yesterday February 8th 2006 – I cried. His voice sang to my soul…to my spirit.. to my very essence.!! What joy…what hope…what saddness all wrapped up in one glorious voice. Today I cried again when I found this website … with the knowledge he is now “Over the rainbow with his blue birds” Again the tears come as I listen to his voice and realize what a great gift he was to all mankind. God Bless those who got the chance to celebrate life with him… Glenda – Nova Scotia , Canada

Facing Future is unquestionably the most heart felt album i’ve ever heard!! Tracks like ‘White Sandy Beach of Hawai’i’ & of cause ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ always make me stop whatever im doing, sit back, shut my eyes & just block everything else out (i’d be lying if i said it had never brought a tear to my eye)! Im constantly recommending the album to friends & colleagues, only for them to say “who?”. I then tell them thats its the person who sings the track at the end of 50 First Dates & Meet Joe Black… & every time they are like “Oh My God, I want to hear that album NOW!” My main aim is to of cause to go to Hawai’i to see the island that gave birth to such a beautiful voice & gave inspiration for such lyrics! (im also a huge Bon Jovi fan, but have never thought about travelling to New Jersey, so this says EVERYTHING for IZ)

The first time I heard the music of Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, I was with my family in Maui driving out to dinner. My grandmother who lives on Oahu had lent me facing future. As we were driving along listening to the music I remember thinking it was possibly the most beautiful music I had ever heard in my life. When he died, the world lost one of its greatest artists.

I recently discovered Bruddah IZ from the soundtrack of 50 first dates. I’m saddened to hear that he has passed away. I will, forever, remember his name, and his voice. My future wife and I have decided to make “Over the rainbow,” our song. Thank you IZ, for the beautiful voice, and wonderful feelings your songs give.

The First Time I listened to Iz. It was an epiphany of peace and solitude for myself. The voice of an angel. I never knew what Iz looked Like until after his death.I would have never in a million years guessed such a big man would have such a voice. He is truly a beautiful person who has touched me. I pray that his family will feel the solitude that I have found in Iz’s music. He will live on. God Bless and Farwell.

Hello:

Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of “somewhere over the rainbow/it’s a wonderful life” has been used in a norwegian commercial firts aired September 2006. The commercial has been nominated for an award. See it here:

http://www.norsk-tipping.no/page?id=37&key=21065

His voice is tender and wonderful here — however, I do not see his name credited . . . I will let you know if I find it. A little puzzling.

I have typed many messages today only to erase them,Because I cannot find the words to explain how I feel when I listen to Israel’s music.My new friend Paul has introduced me to his music and I am at awe, I am at ease,I am refreshed to this music that is new to me, but so many people have enjoyed for years.I am sad that he is no longer with us.I will run out and buy the rest of his CD’S! And share them with all my friends.Mahalo IZ

Hi –

I have ALWAYS LOVED the song, “Over The Rainbow,” but when I heard IZ’s version – I felt so deeply touched.

I love music but this was different. I think very few musicians can reach you throught their music and touch your soul and I felt IZ’s version of this song was did that for me. Ever since then, I feel happy and more motivated to make my own life better.

I never knew who the great musician was that sang this verson, but after I saw “50 First Dates,” I searched until I found my answer. Ever since then, I listen to the song everday!!!

Thank you IZ for this incredible song (your version) and for touching others around you for your truly amazing musical talent.

I truly love this song! Rest in peace.

Hello, Before 6 Month I bought my first Ukulele and search the Internet for more Ukulele Players and Ukulele music. After a while the first song of iz I heared was Somewhere over….! After that I got cerious and like to hear more of his music. So I bought all of his CD’s, and also all DVD’s! While watching “The man behind the music” I felt loke I never did before (and I’m near 40 years old). Now my life changed completely, and I decided to make his music more pupular in Germany (and maybe Europa). I can’t bring his Spirit to Germany, but I can help keeping his music alive and tell the audience of this fabolous man while performing his songs! I know I’m not able to copy IZ (nobody can do it) but singing his songs made me feel very close to him.

People who hear me singing IZ songs call me “IZ-light”. I dont know if anybody can imagine how proud I feel hearing this name for me! But I don’t know if it is overbearing to wear this name.

Aloha

Michael

Bruddah IZ lernte ich leider erst 2005 kennen. aber schon nach den ersten takten war mir klar, dass er ein ganz besonderer mensch gewesen sein muss. ich verstehe die hawaiianische sprache nicht, aber ich denke, es ist auch nicht nötig. der klang seiner stimme allein genügt, um seine botschaft zu verstehen: diese unendlichen gefühle, die liebe zu den menschen, zur natur und ganz besonders zu hawaii. solange seine lieder zu den menschen durchdringen wird IZ leben – in den herzen aller, die ähnlich wie er empfinden können.

mahalo and god bless you, brudda IZ

Wow, I guess I am like many others in the states. I discovered Isreal’s music too late. Soundtracks drew me to his music, and I am now a big fan. I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina. I am a web designer and graphic artist, and would gladly offer my services to help keep Iz music alive!

I am a new fan. Mother of one and the music speaks to me. The vocals are great for children. Over the Rainbow is a lullaby I sang to my son, because it was the only song I knew. When I heard Iz rendition I was in love. His dedication preface on the CD Facing Future also speaks to me. Thank you.

I first heard IZ’s rendition of “Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World” on an episode of E.R. My wife and I were moved by the scene and the intelligent use of this well loved artist’ song. Some years later my son Zack was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lynphoma Cancer. We were able to go on a trip to Hawaii (via Make-A-Wish Foundation) and I heard the song over the radio as we were making our way from the airport to our hotel (Aston Waikiki Beach). I knew then that my son was going to beat his cancer. Sure enough 1 year and 3 months later he was pronounced with a clean bill of health. Thank you IZ for making two dreams come true. The beauty of that song and being able to hear it in Hawaii, and the power of your song to let me know that all will be well with my son.

May your spirit live on through your music and may it live within our hearts.

Al, Candi, Zack, Matt and Brandon

Kia ora, The first time i heard the song Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Isreal Kamakawiwo’ole was from the movie 50 First Dates, i fell inlove with the song again. I love the ukes sound in Isreal’s version of it. I’ve since downloaded the song and now listen to it almost everyday. I’m also sorry for the great loss to his family and friends, i know it’s almost been ten years but i’m just finding out about it now as i was searching for the lyrics to his song….

Aroha mai, Kia Kaha (all my love, and stay strong) Hana

Nga mihi nui ki te tangata nei mo tana reo reka me ana waiata ataahua. Ahakoa he manu waiata te tangata nei, ko tona reo, kaore tonu e peeraa ki te tiorooro o te manu, engari he mea humarie ki te whakarongo atu.

Tena, te pouri hoki kua hinga te manu nei, engari, e kore ia e warewaretia.

There is nothing better than listening to bruddah IZ and watching the sun set.. The emotion he brought to all of us is amazing. He will live in every stroke of my guitar, and in all of our hearts with his beautiful words, and his hide-away he gave us through his music. Your loved Iz, and missed. Bless you..

I just this week became familar with this mans work. I live in Kansas and I heard his signing of “Somehwere over the Rainbow” I got on the internet to see where I could buy it and found this site saying he had died. I offer my sorrow. I love this song more than any in the world and have been playing it on my computer all afternoon. May his soul rest in peace,over that same rainbow.

I’m from Austria and went to Oahu this summer. During this stay I saw IZ CD’s in a store. But I didn’t buy one because I didn’t know which CD I should buy. Of course, Hawaii has a lot of great musicians. But when I came back home to Austria I remembered the IZ CD’s and I decided to buy one of them. Now I already have two and I also ordered the songbook. Next week I will hold a small presentation about IZ at my school and I will keep IZ in memory for my whole life. Mahalo IZ.

His music is an eternal gift to us all. I’m sorry I never got to hear Iz in person.

I just wanted to say I saw IZ CD’s in the Kings Shopping Center, Market.

First time, EVER to the big Island, Hawai’i. Since I’ve seen the CD, I couldn’t wait to get home and see “Who is this guy?”

I came across “Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World”.

I can’t believe it. Brings tears to my eyes. Not only his voice, but just wanting to head back to Hawai’i.

I was also shocked to find that he had passed away…

What a discovery and memory.

  • This man was awesome,it doesn’t matter if I’m happy or sad his “Over the Rainbow” song can make me feel the way I am supposed to.My son-in-law downloaded it on my phone and I fell in love with it the first time I heard it! my boyfriend was raised part of his life in Hawaii. Maybe one day we can go see where Bruddah man was from, at least I can still hear him on a CD. Like they say only the good die young. Mohalo Iz…..
