Israel Kamakawiwoʻole (also known as Bruddah Iz or IZ), was a Hawaiian singer-lyricist, musician, and Hawaiian sovereignty activist. This song has always been a beautiful and relaxing song to listen to. It’s a medley of Somewhere Over The Rainbow and What A Wonderful World. Unfortunately, he suffered from obesity – at one point weighing 757 pounds – and passed away at the young age of 38. However, his beautiful music lives on.
