White Sandy Beach of Hawai’i – Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

I first heard Iz in Hawai’i at a music shop where I bought a gourd. I can’t play music for shit, sadly. I was born with a heart murmur, and I blame it for my musical arrhythmia. That and my chronic honkitude… I grew up in the town where Martha Stewart is from. Did you hear she’s dating on match.com? Thanks to CNN for broadcasting that ‘news.’
Iz died in 1997, only a few years after achieving fame with his amazing covers of “Over the Rainbow” and “Country Roads.” His album FACING FUTURE has all the songs I mentioned and for me, is as soulful and talented an album you are likely to find.
