Music Monday 75 : : Israel Kamakawiwo'ole "Over the Rainbow"

Music Monday 75 :: Israel Kamakawiwo'ole "Over the Rainbow" (1993)

I've heard this song many times, but I didn't know who was singing it, let alone anything about the person. Enter NPR's Culturetopia: a weekly recap of arts and entertainment stories from NPR. I download this podcast all the time. Love it.

The story about Israel Kamakawiwo'ole was on a recent edition of Culturetopia. The story is a part of NPR's 50 Great Voices. In the 7 minute feature, it was nice to hear about how the song was made and to learn a little more about Kamakawiwo'ole's life.
