amazing person.....

Isreal Kamakawo'ole (IZ) is an amazing person. I first listened to him in my school and it was like magic. My teacher played it whenever she could and she was hawaiian too. His story is actually quite depressing. The maximum weight of himself was 750 lb. To listen to his singing and you look at him you say "Is that sound coming out of such a huge man?" His voive is strong but not over powering and is easy to listen too.



The entire album is one of those rare jewels where every song is a pleasure to listen without having to FFWD. This Gentle Giant of Hawaiian music embodies that island spirit I miss enormously.
