Chuck has said some nice things
Default IZ Kamakawiwo'ole

Tim:

You mentioned IZ's great heart and voice and uke skills. He also knew how to choose a song and had a great band. When I think of people that could do it all, I always remember him.

If anyone out there is curious about IZ, get yourself the "Facing Future" CD and you'll see why he was the most beloved artist in Hawaii and Facing Future (a Hawaiian album!!!) went platinum. His version of "What A Wonderful World" is still the #1 song ever on Billboards's World Music chart.

It's hard to imagine that you won't love IZ's CD's. If you don't and are a FFA, at least you'll have a nice picture of a 600+ pound Hawaiian guy.
