Weekend Music Embed
You have heard this song. It was used in "ER" when Anthony Andrews character died. It's been used in ads. I think it's been used in several different ads in fact. The singer and ukulele player is the late
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. A 600 pound Hawai'ian musician of surprising delicacy and grace for his bulk. If this version does not touch something in your soul, you are lacking in feeling. I love this song and have long been saddened that Iz passed before he was recognized for his singular achievement of making a song standard his own. I hope you like it.
