Izzy Kamakawiwo'ole was a huge man, with huge talent. "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" is one of his signature songs. This recording and video are a breath of fresh air for me.  Hope you'll enjoy when you have time.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I think his version of this song plays on a commercial.

    He has a calming effect. Voice of an angel.

    Lovely song, great singer. There has been several versions all good.

    Very good version of the song, what a lovely voice he had.



    YEP! Nice song.The Billy Thorpe version is kinda cool too.

    I saw him perform shortly before he passed away. He did have a beautiful voice. It's too bad he died so young. Obesity is a terrible disease. Sometimes it just can't be successfully fought. 

    He sure did have a following and was a Hawaiian treasure.  

    I Quite like Nora J ones,or somthing Cassiday,but she has passed away to,


    Eva Cassidy Dougal.

    thats it Ted,a very unassuming but heartfelt voice,

    I really liked him.  Unfortunate that many entertainers make their living on their physical stature.  Being overweight is dangerous but when your next paycheck depends on being overweight it becomes 'Suicide for profit'.  Not much sense in that.


    EDIT!  Sorry I had the wrong guy, I thought you meant John Pinnett comedian.   Sorry I hijacked your thread.  i do that..




    Not a problem. I'm sure you know who Izzy was. Hope you had a chance to enjoy the song.
    And I many excellent comedians who live off what will likely be the death of them.
