Product Details


A decade after his death at age 38 in 1997, Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole remains Hawaii's best-known and most beloved singer. His breathtaking version of "Over the Rainbow" is an international hit and is widely thought to be the only interpretation that could possibly stand up to Judy Garland's original. On this new release, IZ's inspiring vocal tracks and ukulele accompaniment are lovingly surrounded by lush orchestrations. These beautiful interpretations are faithfully captured in these piano arrangements for all to enjoy.

Songs: A Hawaiian Like Me * 'Ama 'Ama * E Ku'u Morning Star * Henehene Kou 'Aka * Ka Huila Wai * Kaleohano * Ke Alo O Iesu * 'Opae E * Twinkle Twinkle Little Star * 'Ulili E * What a Wonderful World * White Sandy Beach * Plus a special bonus arrangement of Over the Rainbow.
