Conhecia a música SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW mas, não a interpretação pelo IZ. Depois, ouvi inúmeras vezes o seu vídeo oficial e não sei porque, sempre choro. Talvez seja por saber que o mundo perdeu alguém tão carismático. Sinto-me bem por reagir assim. Já encaminhei o vídeo para dezenas de pessoas amigas.

I wonder often what it is about this music that touches so many in the same way. I heard Over the Rainbow and could not stop playing it. Hope to meet you in Heaven and listen to you for eternity. I had just found you when you left us. When you see a guy that looks a lot like you, that's my brother...he can't sing. :-)

I lived in Hawaii several years ago and when I first heard IZ's music I was so touched by his beautiful voice, my husband too so we bought all his CD's and we played them over and over again. We just recently visited the island of Oahu again and we had a hawaiian radio station on our rental, his songs played all the time and we felt right at home. Now back in the mainland I just have to play him and I can just close my eyes and imagine I'm in beautiful Hawaii again. Love IZ, his music will live foreer!

Há muito tempo procuro esta música. Sempre ouvi em alguns programas mas nunca soube sobre seu intérprete ou história de vida. Hoje assistindo a um programa no Brasil, consegui encontrá-la no youtube. Não sei o que há mas esta música consegue tocar nossas almas e despertar um desejo de viver cada dia mais intensamente. Há algo além daquilo que terrenamente conseguimos entender. Que seu espírito tenha encontrado caminho da LUZ!

Was stationed in Hawaii from 1968 to 1970. Returned in 1999 and wanted to buy a Hawaiian Disc. Went to Hilo Hattie's checked out the CD's and heard of sample of Iz's which was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, never heard anything so beautiful. Have ended up buying everyone of his albums, and a Video. Why is it that all the good die young. His way of singing, talking and love for Hawaii and its peopler, Hawaiian and Non-Hawaiian will never die, God Bless you Brother Iz. I hope someday to return to paradise

Date of visit May, 2013. I was introduced to your music in Hawii and instantly fell in love with one of your CD's. When I got home I looked you up on the Internet and found out about your passing and felt so sad. Your music brings me back to Hawaii. I left a piece of my heart there. It is a special place to me and always will be and your music is Hawaii.

I saw that there was a buncha spam as of late, so I thought I would show some love... Dear Iz, Thank you for realizing your talents and sharing them with the world so pure heartedly throughout your days on this Earth. Even after your death, you continue to heal and inspire people with your angelic voice. You are the reason why I bought my ukulele! I've been trying to learn your version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for a while now, and it's coming along slowly but surely. Listening to you has made me want to be a better person; it is a reminder to me that life is worth living and that positivity always outweighs negativity. Wherever you may be now, I imagine that your beautiful soul even makes the afterlife a better place to be. Much Love, Jess

Certainly a great loss for all ... God presented him with a gift belicimo a voice poderoza and very beautiful ... A pity, that has called to compose the choir of heaven so soon ...

Faz apenas um ano, que o conheci. Um amigo postou um vídeo dele, cantando "Over the Rainbow" Naquele momento, me apaixonei por "TUDO" de IZ...Música, estilo, simpatia, carisma, e principalmente sua VOZ ANGELICAL...Procurei, e assisti no YouTube, mais vídeos dele, me apaixonei ainda mais. Só que, no mesmo dia ,soube de sua morte... Sofri e chorei muito!! Parecia que eu tinha perdido um ente querido!! Agora, minha filha vai viajar para o Havaí, e disse que vai me trazer um presente, eu pedi para ela; me trás um punhado de areia, do lugar que o IZ amava tanto!! Esse será meu maior presente!! Tenho certeza, que cada grão de areia, cada gota do oceano do Havaí, contém um pouco do espírito de IZ...que está vivo!! ♥

Parabéns, amigo Israel. Tenho plena certeza que hoje habita um mundo livre, como sempre sonhou.

Brudda IZ is not dead, he is ascended into heaven. Last night October 30th 2012, God sent me a lovely vision about Hawaii and about speaking to my listeners through my Sunday morning radio broadcast about the paradise of Hawaii. As a minister and former career Navy man, was privileged to visit Oahu many times, but the world turns many times in our lives and at this stage of my life, I will never have the opportunity to return in this life. Ihave been a fan of IZ for a couple years now and am able to revisit Hawaii through IZ's angelic voice. He visited me this morning, when the first flakes of snow are starting to fly here in the mountains. But it is just like heaven through Brudda IZ's guiding light and a beacon to the Kingdom to come. God's best gifts come in big packages sometimes!

I remember knowing your music as a young kid, even saw you in concert at the shell with my Mom a few times and her co-workers, never understood until one day at school just a few months after you had passed I was in the 9th grade at the time, and a classmate was pouring her heart out over the loss of Braddah Iz, the whole class was in tears. I am 32 now and far from home but still listen to Iz and Hawaiian music and understand its value to the world, I teach it to my children and hopefully one day they to will understand. K....Aloha...

I was just listening to some Iz and since I'm a Kama'aina (born and raised on Oahu and lived through many Kill Haoele Days!) All in jest bros, unless you were one of the guys I had to fight!) It still just breaks my heart that he's not with us anymore. He was just sooo talented! Everytime I put his music on it brings me back to my roots in the Islands and puts a big smile on my face. Yes, San Diego is good too, but Hawaii is the best! Just can't make a living there as we all know! Iz, you live on forever in your music. Funny, but good thing, I took my son out on a fishing charter last weekend and the captain started playing some Iz and I got in the zone and instantly hooked up with a Yellowtail! We just had a sushi feast tonight and I put on Iz for the folks that showed up. Good times for all. Thanks Iz! I miss you.

I happened on Israel by accident on the 6th of June, 2012. I couldn't believe his voice. My husband and all his family are born on the Islands. Me married iin 1963 and all of my children were born there. We lived there 21 years before moving to the mainland. My husband knew Iz and he and his friends met with them regular. He has albums of them but I never really listened to them and I put the albums on cd for him. I keep playing the concert of 1996 Na Hoku Hanohano awards. It just brings me to tears each time I here it. RIP Israel you are much missed. God Bless.

I've never responded to anything I've seen or heard on any website. This I had to. Tonight I discovered and lost a blessing. I cannot believe that this man had never crossed my path before. I have truely been blessed and comforted by such a melodious voice. I hope that all people get a chance to hear a voice that comforts and makes you feel loved as he much as he must have been loved in his short life. It is too bad also that we tend to judge a person by the outward appearance rather than the inward love that he seemed to feel for all people. How could someone with that VOICE given by our Heavenly Father be anything but a blessing. Thank you IZ.

What a singer he was who had such love for his fellow man. I wasn't as crazy about the song "Over the Rainbow" that was sung by Judy Garland although she sang it beautifully, but when I heard the "Over the Rainbow" sung by IZ, WOW that touched my SOUL. It was beautifully arranged. It hurts me deeply to know that he's passed, but happy to know he was a Christian and loved JESUS. I saw the video on U-Tube where the people spread his ashes and it brought tears to my eyes and hurt in my heart. It's no surprise that he left such an impact on so many people around the world through his music, and the way he lived his short life and for being an inspiration to us all. My husband was listening to some music on the computer one day when I first heard this song, I remember asking him who was singing it because I really liked the way the singer sung the song. I learned that is was IZ. I'm sorry I never got a chance to meet IZ, and it hurt to learn that he had already passed away way before I had learned about him. Thanks for the opportunity to sign this guestbook. He surely is missed by many.

Minha querida noiva escolheu "entrar" no dia do casamento ao som de Over the Rainbow, na versão de IZ, o que obviamente será feito. Porém, para surpresa dela, e porque não dos convidados, quem irá tocá-la e interpretá-la serei eu... que mal sei tocar violão ou qualquer outro instrumento. Bem, ainda faltam 6 meses para o casamento, que será em 24/11/2012. Até lá... ajude-me Israel, de onde estiver, pois também será uma ótima homenagem a você. Esteja com Deus.

Só temos que agredecer a deus e a Israel por ter existido por ter colaborado com a musica mundial por que nao exestiu uma pessoa que cante-se com a alma e nao negando suas raízes e por amar seu povo, ele não morreu ele vive em nossas memorias e jamais alguém algum dia poderá apagar essa coisa tão maravilhosa que ele nos deixou para todo sempre, obrigado Israel onde quer que voce esteje.... obrigado eu e toda a nação brasileira que conhece e ama sua musica agredecemos...

My dad was stationed at Hickham Air Force Base for 10 years, and some of my brothers and sisters went to high school in Waikiki. I also have several friends and teachers living in the islands. Hawaii is a magical paradise! When I heard IZ's voice for the first time, I thought I was hearing an angel. Not only was his music inspirational, but, IZ was an inspiration to anyone of Hawaiian heritage. His love of the land, culture and language is unsurpassed, and his message to the people to embrace it, was truly from the heart. He seemed to love life, and especially his family. He is a great role model for Hawaiians of all ages! Although I personally did not know him, he seemed to have an bit of inner sadness of a culture being swallowed up by, embrace your culture, (land, language, music, traditions), and integrate it with the modern Hawaii. I am sorry that you are gone, IZ. You are a remarkable human being! I am honored to have heard you sing! God Bless you! Now, you are one with the land! I will meet you some day when I go "over the rainbow". Aloha, IZ!

A friend was nice enough to share this amazing video of Israel singing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" which brought tears to my eyes. It not only was beautifully done by Israel but also reminded me of a wonderful time long ago when my late Mother use to sing it to me. As I read further on the internet about Israel I discovered what a great man that he was and how kind and sweet he was to everyone. I am sure his spirit lives on in those who loved him and especially all he touched through his beautiful music, thank you.

I just watched the official video of him singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow. I've heard this song plenty of times for various reasons, but I was truly touched by this video. Even though his weight was an issue, he seemed like he had a heart of gold, a smile so golden. It's a shame Hawaii lost such a talented person. I loved the end of the video showing his ashes being spread the way they were and how all the Hawaiians gave tribute. You truly have a b eautiful state and beautiful people

I am probably the only person who did not like the song, "Over the Rainbow." That is until I heard Israel Kamakawiwo'ole sing it. I couldn't get it out of my mind. H e sang it with such feeling, such poingnancy. His rendition is now one of my favorite songs. He had a gift to translate beauty to music. He was a modern virtuoso.

Since going to Hawaii the first time in 1988, the Hawaiian music has made me think of God and love. Later hearing IZ's music, it made my heart soar in the winds, and was very comforting to my soul. Just last night I had to take my wife to the emergency ward at the Auburn hospital. While she aw waiting in the room there on the bed I played Isreal's music for her, and she was very comforted by his voice I like the way he sings for the Hawaiian people. To have a rich heritage makes one proud, and to fight for that heritage is a noble thing. Thank you IZ for your love of your home land in songs. Bob

IZ is surly in heaven. I was riding to church today with my Grandaughters when this song came on the radio, I had heard the tune before but never really paid a lot of attention to it. I asked them what it was and they said over the rainbow silly. I played over the Rainbow today for the first time today on guitar. As I started playing I began to have tears of sorrow and of joy that I did not understand. You see I am a grown man ond do not cry. I could feel someone with me while I was playing. So I looked up the artist only to find the whole tragic story of the loss of this fine example of a man. IZ Lives in his music now!

I have a fond memory of contemprary Hawaiian music having lived there for a while in 1978. IZ's was two years younger than me. His redention of Rainbow and Wonderful Life still bring a chill to my soul and tears to mind... an addictive feeling. Thank you IZ. Aloha bra!

Hello. I'm Polish, I live in Gdansk. I heard and loved. I felt when I read that Yisrael was dead. :-( The memory of him was in his songs. May peace be with us. Gregory.

Such a lovely voice! I only heard of him this year and immediately bought his album "Facing Future" The islands of Hawaii truely have a voice to cherish as his songs echo over the islands and a man to honor for his tribute to the paradise of the pacific.

I am a singer, songwriter, composer. Heard Iz on Nory show. Had to email him and let him know there are very few artists who trick my trigger. I cried when I became aware of his passing. I know he's singing in heaven and was probably awarded wings! Thank you Iz.

Me conmueve escuchar las canciones de Israel, transmiten mucha paz y son extremadamente dulces. Imagino que debe de haber sufrido al estar atrapado en un cuerpo que le traía problemas de salud y no le permitía ser del todo libre.

Wow... I am blown away by how wonderful this man was and is. Even in death his beauty and warmth still touches people. I am brought to my knees in awe and joy that his music and voice inspires. His voice is so peaceful and you can feel his spirit when you listen to his music. This is what music is supposed to be and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to hear it. Thank you Israel and may you rest in peace friend.

It is a great and powerful thing, the ability for one to bring such great joy to so so many. To be entranced by something as simple as a song, where you find yourself uplifted and unconsiously smile while listening.

Pra mim IZ foi um artista de grande reconhecimento artístico e como espírito, sua musica vem da alma, e com o carinho que toca sua musica, deixa qualquer pessoa bem, minha filha que possui apenas dois anos, escuta a musica "Somewhere over the Rainbow" antes mesmo de nascer, pois minha esposa colocava a musica para tocar em seu celular, e colocava o aparelho próximo a sua barriga, e a nenê começava a se mexer sempre, como se ela estivesse encantada pela musica, isso vai ser um momento que nunca esqueceremos em nossas vidas, agradecemos a você IZ, por ter criado essa musica que é uma grande obra de arte. Abraços meus e da minha família a você e a sua equipe, quem sabe um dia nos veremos ai no céu!! Giordano Cardozo
