È conosciuto anche con gli pseudonimi di Bruddah Iz, o Bradda IZ, oppure semplicemente IZ. ■ È divenuto famoso nel 1993 con la pubblicazione dell'album discografico "Facing Future" contenente il medley delle canzoni "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" (che fu scritta nel 1939 daper Harold Arlen con testi di E.Y. Harburg, interpretata da Judy Garland e inserita nella colonna sonora del film "Il mago di Oz") e "What a Wonderful World" (standard portato al successo da Louis Armstrong) eseguito in una versione con il solo accompagnamento all'ukulele, suonato dallo stesso Kamakawiwo'ole.Questo brano è stato incluso nelle colonne sonore di numerosi film. Nell'ultima parte della sua vita Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole ha sofferto di una grave forma di obesità, arrivando a pesare 340 kg essendo alto 188 cm., il che faceva ancor più risaltare il contrasto fra le dimensioni del suo corpo ed il minuscolo ukulele da lui suonato.E' morto per problemi respiratori il 26 giugno 1997 all'età di 38 anni. Per tutto il giorno fu mostrata la bandiera hawaiana a mezz'asta. Il suo corpo fu esposto al Capitol Building di Honolulu, dove più di 10.000 persone gli resero omaggio. ■ Le sue ceneri - come si vede nel video - furono sparse nell'oceano a Makua Beach.Iz è stato soprannominato "Gigante buono" dai suoi ammiratori. È ricordato anche per essere stato tra gli ultimi purosangue hawaiani: sempre sorridente e ottimista, di lui fu particolarmente apprezzato l'amore che nutriva per la sua terra e per la sua gente

This song is used over the end credits of the movies “Meet Joe Black” and “Finding Forrester”! I couldn’t believe it when I found out this great artist had passed on before those films came out! He was just 37 years old-born the same year I was -1960! How tragic!!!

My wife died in May and a very close friend played this at her memorial celebration. What a wonderful tribute it was. Sally dreamed that Patti wanted her to play another song then the one she had picked. As she was driving that day she heard this four times. So she played it! The day she died, four different places all over the States, people told me that they saw rainbows and one double one. Thank you....

This song makes me break down in tears the instant I hear it. My late son past away in 2007 after an almost four year long hard fought battle for his time on earth. My son received two small bowel transplants and one open heart surgery due to a mistake by a surgeon who was trying to drain his lung but missed and stabbed his heart. His story is too long and unbelievable to tell. The reason this song causes me to cry is that his nurses loved my son so much that they made a tribute video in his memory and this song is what is played in the background.

I honestly did not come to see a specific clip. I came to listen to this beautiful music by a man with a big heart, so whoever is complaining about the clip or his looks needs to shove it because you searched for this music so you have to like it to look for it and if you stop liking it because of his appearance then that's really sad and I hope that you become more open minded.

To everyone who has lost someone. Somewhere over the rainbow they will be waiting for you again 💔💔 till we meet again god bless you all r.i.p ❌❌
