Der 1997 verstorbene hawaiianische Sänger Israel Kamakawiwo'ole war schon zu Lebzeiten eine Legende. Der stark übergewichtige Sänger wurde als 'sanfter Riese' bezeichnet, seine betörende Stimme sang auf Englisch und in der hawaiianischen Landessprache 'Olelo Hawai'i. Posthum erschienen einige Aufnahmen, die seinen Ruhm mehrten. 'Facing future' erschien erstmals 1993, war bisher nur als Import erhältlich und nun regulär über den Marktführer Universal Music.

IZ : the ʻUkulele songbook by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole( )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in Hawaiian and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current worldwide appreciation of ukulele music can easily be traced to one man, Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole. Israel's music conveys joy and hope and is loved the world over. When writing the book From the Corner of His Eye, author Dean Koontz found inspiration in Iz's music, stating, "I hope that the reader finds pleasure in my story equal to the joy and consolation that I found in the voice, the spirit, and the heart of Israel Kamakawiwo'ole." Tragically, Iz passed away at the age of 38 in 1997. The state flag of Hawaii was flown at half mast as he lay in state at the Hawaiian capitol building. He was the third person in Hawaiian history to be bestowed this honor. Ten thousand people attended his funeral and thousands gathered to witness as his ashes were scattered at Makua Beach. This songbook contains 13 songs transcribed for ukulele exactly as Iz performed them. Titles: 'Ama'ama * Hawai'i '78 * A Hawaiian Like Me * Henehene Kou 'Aka * Ka Huila Wai * Ka Pua U'i * Keyhole Hula (Kauoha Mai) * Kuhio Bay * Na Ka Pueo * Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World * Panini Puakea * 'Ulili E * White Sandy Beach * The Wind Beneath My Wings/He Hawai'i Au
