Happy Birthday from Jon de Mello…

Posted on 20. May, 2010 by in IZ

In honor of Israelʻs birthday, we have a never before heard outtake from the “Wonderful World overture”. This song starts with an extended version of the instrumental intro from the first track on the album (What a Wonderful World) and transitions into the last song on the album “A Hawaiian Like Me”.

Enjoy and Happy Birthday Israel.

There will never be a Hawaiian like him

    IZ was a great talent. It’s sad that more people didn’t get to see him perform live.

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!

    What an Angel! I listen to IZ’s “over the rainbow” to keep my head in a positive state of mind by visualizing my dreams to his song. I have one of IZ”s moments in time stamped in my brain, on the beach playing and singing “over the rainbow”. His beautiful music has inspired me to learn to play the uke. When in Hawaii one day I will come in search of his music and people who knew him. Thank you IZ. You are a legend!

    I wonder if anyone has considered starting a petition to rename Mt. Kilauea to Mt. Kamakawiwo’ole ?
    Braddah IZ is music… music come to life. Like Braddah IZ said, “dreams really do come true.”

    Braddah IZ is music incarnate… music come to life. If you were to collect
    all of your favorite songs put them together and then add flesh and muscle
    and give them a skeleton to stand on and then draw the most beautiful
    smile that your heart could dream up there before you would be IZ. IZ is
    music. And the reason he iz a big man iz ’cause God needed a big body
    to put that huge heart of his in… but that body still wasn’t big enough to hold
    that heart that kept growing everyday. So God decided to call Braddah IZ so
    he could come be with him… now Braddah IZ’s heart has all the room it needs
    and I will always have this empty hole and a burning desire to see
    Braddah IZ whom I never met. If I get lucky, maybe I’ll get one of his concert
    tickets in heaven before they sell out.
