I hate that I never heard of Bruddah IZ until this past year. He was a one of a kind musician. The way he could take his uke and transform it into an instrument of such beauty. His vocals for some reason are haunting yet comforting at the same time. This quality is what I find attracts me to his music. The music world as well as the rest of the world has lost a true pioneer and giant of a man.

Like so many others, I discovered the wonderful music of IZ only after he had died.

Oh, how I wish I had heard his music when he was alive. What a dream it would have been to see him live in concert. I feel that much of the world got robed.

I recently made a trip to Maui and discoverd his music playing on the stereo of my car rental. I asked some locals who the heck IZ was, and it was like I had spoken the name of a God. Everything got real quiet and reverent when they told me who this great man was.

The only suvenier I brought home from the Island’s was Iz’s CD. That was enough. All the beauty, happiness and spirituality of the Hawaiian Islands are all contained in his music. I can’t listen without getting tears in my eyes. Iz is truley somewhere over the rainbow, and I like to think he is looking down on us with that beautiful face and singing to us with that amazing husky, yet gentle voice. God bless you Iz, for you continue to bless us with your music. Constance McCaul Sacramento, California

I just started a weight loss blog and I was looking for the perfect song of inspiration to add..I have a special Angel (Diane) that helped me believe in myself by travling more than 10 hrs round trip to visit me a stranger to her at the time. She & I were speaking of Somwwhere over the Rianbow as we both love rainbows. I looked it up & found this version which I INSTANTLY knew it was PERFECT for ALL I wanted from my blog & journey. Not realizing who the singer was or his passing or health issues,some weight related. At the SAME time I was adding the U Tube video to my new blog my friend KY from Hawaii was IMing me. I got back to her & explained I was adding the video & she told me all about this GTEAT man & how it was PERFECT.I told her he looked like LOVE that is all I could see when I did see his beautiful face. His smile was a gateway to his soul & his music the ,welcome..I am PROUD to add your loved one to my blog & may his spirit be with his loved ones always,Love Laura Howe,Guilt Gutt

Thank you for sharing your wonderful voice with us. My husband and I were in Honolulu for our 25th wedding aniversary Dec 2 2007. We came to spend time with our son who had just returned from Iraq. Your voice is a soothing balm to a worried heart, a healing touch to a world gone mad. Your heart, I’m sure, touched the lives of countless millions. You will be missed by those who loved you and by those who never even knew you. Sing with the angels Isreal…

I just discovered Iz’s music in the last year during an episode of Cold Cases. I now play it at my office where everyone absolutely loves it. I was extremely sadden to hear he had pasted some years back. He had the voice of an angel- soothing and heartfelt. I wish I had learned of his talent years earlier and had actually been able to see the man behind this magnificant voice. Best wishes to his family.

IZ has touched my life in his songs in so many ways. Some times when I need motivation, sometimes when I need to be reminded how important our loved ones are and, some times just when I need to hear some of his beautiful songs. He has truely touched my heart.. Les

Man oh man, I have not stopped listening to his music since my son told me whose voice that was I had loved to hear. We looked at his video clips and I realized that so many years went by that I heard these tunes and that voice and I had no idea that we could have no more due to his condition- I am thankful that my son introduced me to Iz… my condolences to his family and Hawaii

I was looking thru a friend’s profile on Facebook and came across a video on his funwall. I played it thinking it was a comedy act, or something of that nature, but what I found there was a total shock. I heard the voice of an angel. I had to stop what I was doing and play this over and over. This man was the sound of all things good and joyous. I had never heard of him before today, and had never heard him sing either, but I instantly fell in love with him, and was greatly saddened to find that he had passed on. My condolances to the family, it must have been wonderful knowing him, and I hope his voice travels on forever and ever, and brings the peace to others that it brought to me.

Our dear brother Iz has left all of humanity with an understanding of the true nature of man when man is right with the Lord. His voice is a testament to this, no matter his health problems that so quickly removed his wonderful voice from our midst. The lyrics in all of his songs and his voice suggest to me that this was a man that was at peace with who he was and with all things around him. A state many of us here on the mainland only dream of achieving….we can only hope. Everytime I here his voice, I think WHAT A WONDER! God Bless Izrael Kamakawiwo’ole. Especially after all that the Hawaiian and Indigenous People have been put through in this land.

God Bless! WE WILL SEE AND HERE HIM AGAIN ON THE OTHER SIDE!

A very late comer to iz’s music. Absolutely inspiring. Every 10 years or so JAH sends a messenger with an angelic voice that pleases those in heaven and us on earth. Over the rainbow is a psalm and a parable all in one. This song brings loving tears to my eyes every time I play it. In the last 24 hours I must’ve played it for 23 hours. I’m truly thankful to have somewhere to express my deep gratitude and appreciation for such an inspiring song, and may his music live on forever

Listen to ALL of Iz’s albums. TRY to find a song worthy of skiping over like so many mainstreamed artists. For Iz, simply press play and let aloha soothe your soul.

Bruddah IZ,

It’s odd to think that your physical self is gone and that the better part of your legacy remains with us through song, love, friends and your family.

Thank you for sharing your art and your love with the world. Through these things you will truly be with us forever. (With this being said almost 10 and a half years after your crossing!)

DS

Life is much much too short not to experience his gift, the song, Over the Rainbow. I KNOW the WORLD HEAVED especially Hawaii the day this man passed from us. I love to watch the videos of his smiling face as he sings. He makes me smile and the world suddenly isn’t so bad anymore! We have many performers who come a dime a dozen but every once in a great while,along comes something money cannot touch, the one who sings from his soul, the one who reaches into us and brings healing! You live on and your voice graces the knolls of Heaven, Iz! Shalom! Bless you family! Bless your precious family! We LOVE the way you sang chimney. That word MAKES the song.

I borrowed a friends iPod recently(2007) and happened across several of Bruddah’s songs. I had never heard of him or his music. I couldn’t stop listening, trying to sing along, and often coming near tears at the passion in the music.

Tonight I decided to search the internet to learn more about him and his music, expecting to learn something about what he might be recording now….In just these last moments I have learned that Bruddah is gone.

My wife just came into the room and asked me what is wrong. She says I look like I just lost my best friend..

We used Israel’s ‘Over the Rainbow’ for our ‘Perfect’ wedding song in Costa Rica a year ago and it was the most perfect wedding. Thanks IZ, we are with you in the after life and earthly souls…

In my life I have only heard two vocal artists I fell in love with their music, one was Isreal Kamakawiwoole. He will live eternally through his music and I know he has gone to take his place among other ethereal beings with the same sound he produced here on earth. My heart goes out to his family and friends over the loss of this great man.

I’m very thankful to come acroos IZ’s songs and the story of His great life. See I have leukemia and I only ave 8 months to live according to my doctor. this is my second remission, and ever since I herd the news, ive been bitter and hopeless, I felt like the world is so bad to me and its an ugly place to be…Until I heard Iz’s some and after I read about His life history…it hit me, He inspired me to appreciate and look at the wonderful world that I live at. Makes me see the world on a different and wonderful perspective.He is right, somewhere over the rainbow, there is hope for me, for my sickness. Thank You IZ. I hope that you can see how you made people see that life is wonderful. and If it happen that I will die in 8 months, I hope to God that I will meet you up there. You are an Angel.

I heard a couple songs off of Facing Future years ago, on NPR. I have been listening to the CD ever since. This CD has crossed into so many disc changers at work, here in a rural farm community-go figure. I guess we are not as different as we think. Thank you for all the music

Over The Rainbow has always been a favorite of mine, but never more so than the first time I heard it sung by Israel. I had never heard it sung more beautifully by anyone. It saddens me to know that it has taken me 10 years to find his voice, but glad at the same time because he is now singing with the birds and the angels, in the blue skies, above the rainbows. He passed 6 days after we lost our mother, here in Florida. I know she would have loved his music, his songs and his soothing voice. I’d like to think he’s still singing and she’s enjoying it, as much as all of us have.

Thanks be to God who gave such a beautiful and pleasant voice to the world. I often listen to Somewhere Over the Rainbow… interpreted and performed as only Iz could do it. There is none like him. His music comforts me when the world seems most unkind. God bless you all for sharing him with us.

Aloha, I visited Hawaii for the 5th time recently and was turned on to Brother IZ’s music by a store clerk. His voice touched my soul like no other. I sing here at home and listen to many genres of music but no one has ever made me feel the deep thoughts like IZ. I’m deeply saddened that I didn’t get the chance to meet this great man with the velvet voice. He was truly blessed and so were we for his life and music.

IZ’s music has touched my heart for many years. I first heard his music when my parents came back from Hawaii. Lately, I listen to his music to remember the beauty of Hawaii as I had a chance to visit Hawaii myself about a year ago. I also listen to his music in remembrance of my mom who passed away earlier this year. When I went to Hawaii, my whole family went. We had a great time.

Thank You IZ Yesterday I heard IZ for the first time almost by accident He was singing Over The Rainbow as a background track on a Youtube video that a friend sent me for the visual content. I was immediately overwhelmed by The Quality of IZ’s voice and instantly made it a lifetime favourite. I was so intruged I started to investigate who it was singing and I was lucky thanks to a previous post by a fan. Later in the day as I continued to Google IZ I was deeply sadened to learn of his death, and then very happy that he was now with his beloved brother. IZ had the voice of an Angel and its very seldom I shed tears for someone I have know so very briefly.

I am certain IZ is very much missed especially by those who were privelidged to know him.

I’d just like to say Thank You IZ for sharing your wonderfull gift, my life is enriched, when my time comes I am looking forward to saying Aloha.

God Bless

Will

I never knew who sung the Over the Rainbow song until I stumbled upon his video on YouTube. I sobbed through it each time I listened to it. Reason is because it touches me personally as my brother, who died June 29, 1997, was very obese and died suddenly at 32. I miss him terribly. Every time I watch Iz’s videos, I can’t help but see my brother. Thank you Israel for leaving behind your wonderful, inspiring gift of song.

I’ve heard this version of over the rainbow for years and decided to find who the artist was and discovered that it was song by such a wonderful creature of God. I’m sure IZ was known for alot of different songs but if he is only known for this one world wide then his life thou short was worth it.

I like Hawaiian music, I play violin, viola and piano. you know?, I have a ukulele but I will learn it at the beginning of November. I’m 12 but I will turn 13 on August 25. I used to play the clarinet but I quit because of the money because I asked for too many instruments. I asked for violin, piano, mandolin, clarinet, cello and ukulele.

I only play violin, viola and piano.

If I wanted to play anything else, it would be either a cello, oboe, bassoon, flute, harpsichord, trumpet, trombone or maybe drums.

His music is still touching lives. My cousin Brittany Gainous recently passed away at the age of 10 after a 2 year battle with brain cancer and this song touched my heart as I thought of her Somewhere Over the Rainbow. May they both rest in peace and knowing Brittany she is sitting next to him singing right along.

Thank you greatly for such a beautiful version IZ

Sou um fan brasileiro, portanto desculpem pelo meu inglês. Ouvi IZ pela primeira vez no filme ‘Fiding Forrest’. Fiquei simplesmente apaixonado por aquela surpreendente canção.

I lovehismusic and the sound ofHawaiian spirit. I dream of living in Hawaii someday. I am a single mother of a four yearold son and I am going to school to become a nurse. I will be done in December of ’07. It is hard and trys my very soul sometimes but then I’ll close my eyes and listen to IZ, especially white sandy beach, and my soul is soothed and I remember my dream of island life and I am recentered. Over the rainbow was plaid for my son while I gave birth to him and some day I know our dream will come true of living in Hawaii. His music helps me on many hard days and I wish I could have met him to tell him so. God bless & Aloha, Kari & Garron

Wow! The first time I heard Iz’s Over the Rainbow was at a luau last year in Maui (2006). I fell so much in love with it. I came back to Hawaii for a family reunion this summer of 2007. I just found out today that this great musician had already passed away. I bought Facing the Future today, and immediately played Over the Rainbow in the car. I was happy to hear this beautiful song again, but sad in my heart to know that Iz had passed on. It was a bittersweet moment. My husband mentioned that it is play often at funerals. My thoughts switched immediately over to my eldest brother, Edwin, who has terminal cancer. We are here because he wanted to visit Hawaii again with our families. In some ways I notice similarities between my brother and Iz, both very gentle, kind, and thoughtful. Thank God for you Iz for your sweet and gentle ways.

I Jane, was searching for Hawaiian Music for my daughter’s Luau Wedding soon to be and had just received a newletter from somewhere in Hawaii, I was thrilled because it told about the music of Israel who I’d never heard before.I went directly to the site that sold his music and placed a order but it didn’t go through. I immediately called the phone number and was told they weren’t open on weekends. I somehow lost the site and the number. I was devastated and have not been able to find it again. I however found his music elsewhere and placed another order. He was born the year I graduated from High School and at that time Don Ho was the rage. I wish we had had the pleasure of hearing him while he lived but his voice will live on forever. It is so very beautiful and we know the love and pride all of Hawaii must have felt for him.I will get every one I can find of him and they will be played for her wedding. May he rest in peace until someday we all will meet. Words can not express the beauty of his voice. From Georgia, with love!

My wife and I discovered Brother IZ through a very close friend of my Kalani Kruse. On our travels to Kailua Kona, Hawaii where my parents have lived since 1980, we always played his music traveling the island. Not only did Israel have the most beautiful voice, but his love for all could be felt through his music and when he spoke. His music continues to bring my tears of joy. Along with hope that there is more then enough room for the love he so freely gave and sang about. Thanks Israel for what you gave to all of us….

I know, I don’t know exactly what I want to say, for give me. I have much of Israels music, and just tonight heard him not only on a TV show, but online as well.

I’m an old man, and not taken to admitting to tears, but tonight I wept, and modestly smiled at the same time, singing with Somewhere over the Rainbow.

I want so much to believe that Israel is as blessed now as he so blessed the World in his living. Thank you for having this opportunity to share my prayers.

My son who is away at university sent me the song of Over the Rainbow by Israel. I used to sing that song all the time to my son when he was young. It gave me such pleasure to hear the song done by Israel. His version is beautiful. His music is living on past his death. I will play this song over and over. Thank you Israel and my very best wishes to your family left behind.

Just want to thank the great IZ, for hes contribution to the musical world, of which he is no more. But my daughter will soon be, and while we await here coming, we will introduce her to IZs calm and beautiful voice. I wish I could have met him when he was alive, so much karma and voice in one. IZ, you will be missed, but not forgotten. Youre voice and music will follow my daughter in her future. All the love from us in Denmark.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow is an amazingly beautiful song that always bring me to tears. I just watched a movie that played it and I got online to search the artist. Found the song, played it over and over and wept. Thank you, Iz, for your talent. My sincere condolences to your family, and the world, for our loss.

Just want to thank the great IZ, for hes contribution to the musical world, of which he is no more. But my daughter will soon be, and while we await here coming, we will introduce her to IZs calm and beautiful voice. I wish I could have met him when he was alive, so much karma and voice in one. IZ, you will be missed, but not forgotten. Youre voice and music will follow my daughter in her future. All the love from us in Denmark.

I first heard Iz sing at the end of ER when (can’t remember the Dr.s name)…was dying of brain cancer and he was laying in bed on a tropical island. Loved the song, and for years didn’t know who did it. Searched the Internet and found Iz…very happy to find it You Tube!

I admire this man so much. He really put his love into everything he did- music, sovereignty, and life in general. I wish he had lived with us a bit longer because he has had such an impact.

Yo Bruddah, wherever you are the rainbow shines for you. You and your voice are Hawaii and you are loved by many. My sister was born in Oahu and I just visited for the first time last week and stayed in Kona. I first heard your song while crossing over to Hilo and it touched me like no other song. I now listen whenever I can and it makes everything in my life better. I know what you meant to the islands and your words say it all. The island should remain as it is, beautiful just like you. Rest in peace and mahalo, Forever Scott A Davis (SAD)

Hello, I had never heard of Israel Kamakawiwo Ole’ before a few days ago. My nephew’s wife is wanting the song Somewhere over the rainbow played at her wedding as she walks down the aisle. I wanted to hear the song, so I checked it out. I have to say that the song and the music, but mainly, the voice and the man, moved me to tears. He was an absolutely beautiful man with a voice to match. I wish so much that he had not died at such a young age. I’m sure he was a truly wonderful person, as he seems to have touched so many people from what I’ve now read and heard. My condolences go to his wife and daughter and family. Please know that even across all these miles, that he touched a heart in Knoxville, TN. Truly, I’ve never heard a more beautiful version of Somewhere over the rainbow. He was a very talented man with a gift from God. I know he is missed, but I am sure he’s in Heaven singing to the Angels and making them smile. May you always have good memories of him with you until you one day see him again. May God Bless you and your family. Sincerely, Carol

I was brought up on his music. I listen to it still today. His music gives people a sense of what the hawaiian culture is all about, yeah pahtly cuz he explains what it’s about on his cd’s too. But i will always listen to his music no matter how sick and tired others around me get of hearing it. All the more reason to BLASS ‘EM!!!!

I am from Missouri and married a Samoan gentleman in 1998. We lived in Hawaii the 1st year. I have to admit that even tho the cost of living is outrageous there, I have never been happier. I love the people, the food and the music. Everytime the radio was on,I heard Bruddah IZ. It was great. Then when we came back to Missouri, we couldn’t find the music anywhere. My husband’s family sent us a CD every so often but we didn’t get to keep them very long because somebody was always borrowing them and never returning and we never kept them very long. I was looking up Hawaiian music for Don Ho, and came across IZ. Now I am starting our collection again, one at a time. I called everybody I could think of and played some of the music for them. I also sent them the sites so they can buy their own CD’s. Maybe I should wait until they get their music and borrow it from them. LOL.

I always wondered who sang that song Somewhere Over The Rainbow, on the commercials on TV. My wife and my family and I went to Hawaii about two years ago to visit my moms life long friend on Molokai. We were in the coffee plant trying their mocca mama’s and I saw Israels Facing The Future CD, not knowing who it was. I push the button that had his name on it and there was the song. I immediatly showed my wife and bought it. After we got back to Colorado I started to look up about his life and what kind of person he was. I fell in love with his voice and his being. He was so full of what the world needs today, LOVE. I listen to his music daily and it puts me at peace with what ever is bothering me. There is so much I could say about him but ill just say this for now. Even though I never knew him, I feel I know him plenty through his music. He was just a big teddy bear looks like to me and we miss him so much for what he brought to the hearts of simple people. The Hawaiian culture is awsome so full of love and peace.

Hi, I’m from Sweden, and I just discovered Israel Kamakawiwo’ole with his cover Somewhere Over The Rainbow – What A Wonderful World. What a wonderful song, it really got to me, very moving.

Hi. I’m from Denmark. I play Rock’n’Roll guitar, but I’ve allways respected any other type of music. The first I’d heard from Iz, was in the tv-serie ER, in the episode where, one of the doctors (Mark Greene), just past away, and they were playin’ Over The Rainbow. I am a great fan of Ritchie Blackmore (former Deep Purple), who opened his shows with Rainbow, with that song, played instrumental, and I have seen The Wizard Of Oz several times, but the hair on the abck of my head had never vibrated like when I heard Iz’s version… So real, so genuine, and most of all – so simpel… How tough can it be to do it right… ?? Sorry I didn’t get to know you before it was to late… I’ll listen to your music, and God damned.. – I’ll miss your presence on Mother Earth..

Rest In Peace…

Mighty Mike

Dear Family And Friends,

I have just experienced the greatest music from Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. I wished that I could have met him in life. In every article I read about him they have one think in common. They all say that he was always happy.

I hope that one day I can be like him. As happy and kind as he was. My condolences to you.

Like many others, I too have been moved by the Music this young man was capable of providing the world. Though he may have struggled with his own demons, he truly left an indelible mark in the world,never to be erased from time. We have all been blessed by his being, and he will live forever in the music of our hearts and souls’. As they say,as long as we remember him in song his spirit will live forever. I only wish I could have dicovered Iz sooner, May he forever be at peace …..

My thanks to his family for sharing Iz with the world. I listened to a sound that haunted me. I didn’t understand why I could not release it’s hold on me until a friend of mine listened to it. He explained it this way. We are listening to the beautiful sound of a wonderful person’s SOUL. What a wonderful experience. Bless you. Steve Calcagno

I want to say how haunting and beautiful his song has always affected me over the years. I always stop what I’m doing whenever even a little snippet of his music is heard. His version of Over the Rainbow is my favorite song of all time. What a beautiful soul he must have had.

I just heard Over the Rainbow for the first time today. I was floored. How could this beautiful voice be out there and not be heard. I did a bit of reading and now I know the voice was just the begining. I am writing with mixed feelings today. I am so glad to finally be exposed to this this great man. It is obvious how well loved he was and still is. I am a new fan but I will carry a piece of Brudda Iz with me from now on. Live on Brudda Iz

Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow- don’t walk behind me, I may not lead- walk beside me, and just be my friend. (Albert Camus)

With the song-‘Over the rainbow’- I did find some beautiful in my life, at last.

It will be 10 years in June! From the day I first heard his music, I felt his mana and became Hawaianized. He is still my favorite musical artist of all time (since I am over 50 now that covers alot of people!). I am grateful that I was blessed enough to have lived in his time. Love and peace to his family.

I discovered Iz through my mother who had heard Over the Rainbow on the TV show Cold Case.A query was answered in the local newspaper, stating who the singer was and the sad fact that he had passed in 1997. My mother’s day gift to my mother that year (2005) was every Iz CD I could find.Once I played Facing Future,I also bought every CD I could find. Sometimes he makes me smile, and sometimes brings me to tears.I use the music to decompress (I live and drive to work in the Washington, DC suburbs) and I use the music to obtain peace.Work has been particularly stressful in the past few weeks.Iz has been my best friend.He joins me on the morning commute and then again in the evening.He brings me great peace. I wish I had had the honor of seeing him perform live.His family and friends should be very, very proud.

I had not heard of him until I met Joan. She was a nice lady – mom of a friend- I took care of for a while. She was dying from cancer and I had the privilege of caring for her until she passed away. She loved his songs and made sure they were played at her wake. Everytime I hear his songs I always remember her and how brave she was. I only wish I could have met her sooner. His songs really made her happy.

My son and I listen to Somewhere Over the Rainbow over and over. It is very touching. I truly hope Iz is walking in heaven and blessing the angels with that song. I was truly saddened to see Iz had passed away. We had only discovered him recently. You have my condolences. May God bless you and keep you. If Iz was the same as he is conveyed in his music, you are truly blessed to have known him, and loved him. Take care! Mark S. Allen, Haubstadt, Indiana

IZ, U have truly touched my heart with your voice. The day my daughter was born I played it for her in her hospital room and instantly began to cry. And not just a manly trickle. It was niagra falls. Thank you for giving me a song that is for me and my daughter. We will always be able to share special moments that will stay unforgetable, and all to your Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I can’t express how you have affected me Brudah. I will one day visit your homeland or even stay if i can convince my wife LOL. Rest In Peace! Love U! PETE ACEVEDO JERSEY CITY NJ

Through the 10 years of time I knew brother IZ as his nurse at Queens Hospital, I was personally touched by a unique heart of pure Hawaiian gold. To have an opportunity to care for him through the periods of his illness was an experience that has touched my soul for ever, & an honor. His laughter, his courage, his faith….and his God given voice! The nights he’d sing to his daughter over the phone…(pure love)….I can still hear it. Love in a voice. Love for his family, his friends and his Nation…Hawaii. God bless you brother IZ. I know beyond a doubt you grace heaven with your presence and teach angels how to sing. I look forward to forever when once again I will listen to your voice through all eternity. ….and God smiles. Bye brother, I miss you. Alison Brundage,RN

I was at a ime in my life where I needed change. the choices I’d made up to this point were leading me to a short lived life and I remember Braddah Iz talking on numerous occasions of how he used to live an hw he made the changes to insure a pono exsistance.

When he died, I used it as an excuse to do what I do best and thus began the beginning of the end, the beginning of my last use of drugs and alcohol to explain away life, and the beginning of a new path of life where choces counted and meant something. this meant the end to the old Kawika who blammed everything on everyone else taking little account or blam for my own life’s path.

I think of Braddah Iz on many occasions and thank my Akua for placing him in my life that I should change.

somewhere over the rain bow sung by IZ have brougth my ex- husband and I back together. Now we are re-marrying and trying to make up for the wasted years spent hating each other. It is an uphill struggle however, it is one we are emabarking on as we know blue birds fly and dreams come true. deepely sadden to known that as soon as we have discovered his music he is no longer with us. My ex- husband heard his song thougth of me then went out and bought it as a token as he knew that it would be some thing that I would like and the result is the rest of the story.

Even if he never came to be so well known, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole would still have been a great man with a beautiful spirit. We are blessed, however, because his voice reached out so far, and so his spirit, and the spirit of his people, has touched us all. May Braddah IZ and the Hawaiian culture live on forever in the hearts of all who hear his voice.

God speaks beauty and love but perhaps never more so than when he spoke through you, Brother Isreal Kamakawewo’ole.

Brudda IZ, thank you for singing to my baby girls. You passed before they came to us but they hear you and your love in your music and now they sing with you. Forever will you sing to and with us. More voices join you every day. One day all the people of the world may sing with you and feel as you do.

Liberty and blessings to all Hawaiians! Thank you for tolerating the rest of us.

I visited Hawaii in Nov 2006 and saw IZ pictures everywhere. We had a Lauau party abd I bought one of his albums, Facing Future and fell in love his music. I am very sorry to learn of his passing, but his music is living on and I am priveleged to have found his talent and will continue to buy other albums. Condolaces to the family. Dana

I discovered IZ from the movie, 50 First Dates. At the end of the movie came this wonderful voice. I had to find out who it was. Now I have his CDs playing constantly in my car and on my computer at work. His voice and music is so relaxing. I’m just sorry I didn’t discover him while he was still alive. May God bless him and all his family.

2-2007 Just discovered Izrael’s gift he left for me in the music of his album Facing Future. Then to discover from some Hawaiian kids from Mesa State in Grand Junction that he had died I too experienced a feeling of huge loss but am grateful for all the loved ones who have shared him with us. Thank You.

i never knew much about him, i heard his voice and pictured an ageing white american man reminiscent of santa for some reason with a capo on 5th, but i spied a photo of him recently as more hawaian looking with a madalay looking thing, was totally taken aback, and endeavoured to find out more and listen to as much of his music as i could find, what a cracking guy

Until today I admittedly never looked up any information about this lovely individual. A big man, with a loving, heart and voice like an angel. What a blessing!

May his family be blessed beyond measure.

I first heard of Iz’s song when I was in Japan on the J- wave lunch hour of Hawaiian songs. The song was about Konishiki, Mushashimaru, and Akebono. I fell in love with his music again when hearing a friends CD while in Florida. I am now in Hawaii exeriencing what inspired his great music. I sure wish I could have met him or even listened to his concert. My heart is with him and his family. I think it would be awesome if someone could sing the (Hawaiian ’78 introduction) song about Bruddha Iz.

Aloha and Mahalo, David

When I hear the soulfulness that comes out of Bruda IZ I am lifted up and my spirit soars. What a gift he was given and how lucky that we were allowed to experience it. When I found out that he had left us already I was saddened but I was also glad to know that we still have a way to stay connected with him through his music. The beauty is that people are still discovering his music and the love he left behind for us all when we hear him sing. The spirit of Bruda IZ will live on in our hearts even though we never had the opportunity to know him here. Now that is a testimony we should all aspire to leave behind. My condolences to the family of Bruda IZ for your loss.

I have heard Israel’s music at a recent funeral and an even more recent wedding. Everytime i hear his voice singing Somewhere over the rainbow i feel so relaxed and free. He had a truely angelic voice and i will always carry his tune in my head for as long as i walk this green earth. He may no longer be walking on this earth, but he will always be speaking to it.

I was looking for the lyrics to Somewhere over the rainbow, and found myself at this site.

From the moment I heard Isreals exquisitee voice, which defies discription. I felt a pure love for this beautiful soul. I plan on purchasing some of his recordings. In the meantime thank you for sharing him with the world.

I feel blessed by this experience. I am sure that his prescense is greatly missed. Even though his legacy lives on.

IZ’s music has touched so many lives. I live in Canada, myself and my two sons ages 5 and 3 love all his songs. There is just something about his voice that touches the heart. It’s nice to know that such a beautiful spirit lives on. When my youngest was just a newborn baby he would cry for hours at a time, until we played this music. It calmed him as nothing else could ever do. I am thankful to be able to enjoy such beautiful music and the wonderul man who made it. We wish you and your families all the happiness that IZ has brought to so many others.

Love Lianna, Logan and Zane

All day, hour by hour I still think of Somewhere over rainbow song… In my car, in my work, when i gonna sleep, when I am reposing, when I play with my son I still listen this song in my head… I heard it maybe thousand times but I can hear it day by day, hour by hour… I am fascinated by this song… When one time I will die I would like to be played this song on my funeral… Then I will feel free like a bird… Then I will sleep in peace…

I heard his song over a rainbow a couple of years ago and i was entranced by it. Then i was searching for it again and i found it was by IZ. I was so sad to find out that he had passed away by the time i was seven, and i just wanted to tell him that when i hear his song he brought back my belief. My belief in god, in a good place and i wanted to thank him. Where ever he is. Thank you.

I have never heard song like Somewhere over the rainbow. From first moment I heard it, I still think about this song I and cant believe, that the men what it sing is dead. I dont knew him, but I am miserable that he newer will compose and sing song like that… Peace for his mind… World lost big big man…

Unfortunately I only found Iz’ work after his death, and this actually makes me feel bad. This man had a voice that could calm the savage beast in anyone, maybe even bring about world peace. What a shame his life was cut short.

How does a 35 year old man, married and a father of two, find himself sitting in front of a computer crying while listening to IZ, this nearly ten years after his passing away?

As so many before me, I recently discovered the music of Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. As I sit and read all I can of this man, I feel a loss that can only be the smallest fraction of what his family, friends and people must have felt and feel today.

I only wish that my message can reach these very people to let them know that IZ has once again touched someone’s life, so many miles away, so many years after his walk on Earth. I want them to smile with the knowledge that this man inspires me to wrap my arms around my family and be ever so grateful of what I have.

Truly he was a gift to all of us and still is today through his beautiful and inspirational voice.

May God watch over his family, friends and people who he obviously loved so much.

Thank you IZ.

I have just recently discovered his wonderful voice. After reading about him, I am pleased to find that the heart & soul of this man were just as wonderful. What a loss to our world in so many ways. Somewhere over the rainbow…

Very sad to lose someone as dedicated as him. I am not hawaiian but very fascinated with the hawaiian culture and the song hawaii 78 really got to me. It is sad to see someplace so beautiful be used for tourism purposes when some places should be left alone. I have never visited Hawaii and hope to someday.

In my family it was always believed that We are given life, granted death and everything in between is a gift Bruddah IZ and his music most certainly confirmed this RIP IZ

My daughter’s baby boy Finlay was stillborn on 27th October last. Somewhere over the rainbow was played at the funeral and I can’t hear it without crying. Such a beatiful song with such meaning for me and my family.

I just recently discovered IZ’s music. What a wonderful talent he had. His voice is soothing and melodious. I was saddened to discover that he is no longer here but treating the Lord to his talent. Thank you for you music IZ.

i live in Atlanta, and i was visiting my folks in PA this Christmas, and saw an Iz video on the Tube-network station. It was Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and I was completely smitten with his beautiful voice… I’ve never heard him before then, and now feel fortunate i’ve had the experience! God Bless, brudda Iz…
