Facing Future Tracklist:
A legend is someone that inspires people regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, etc. As a black man, this man inspires my very existence. I love his voice, his music, and his spirit. RIP King IZ😔
This isn’t a review. I purchased Over the Rainbow to add to a slideshow I made for my daughter’s birthday and it was blocked and removed from Instagram for “copyright issues” by “Die Supernanny...” My understanding is I can use such a song in this capacity because it’s not being used for profit. She’s only 15 and it’s one of our favorite songs due to it being a reminder of her grandmother who passed away. I have the ability to unblock, but I don’t want to face any issues. Can anyone advise? Thank you!
I just bought the album. I haven't even listened to all of the songs yet, just a few introductions. I'm writing this with happy tears welling up in my eyes. We just came back from our second trip to the magical rainforests and waterfalls of Maui, and this music is filling up my heart with Aloha all over again. Every time I need a reminder of all that is beautiful in this world, I'm going to play this album. Live with Aloha and Mahalo! Love and gratitude, always. 🌺
Such a lovely version so unforgettable ... He has left a precious gift. This song fills the spirit in ways words do not ... This was achieved through his beautiful spirit I'm so grateful to find this song! Eternal voice of an angel
just get it you will not be disappointed..i got it as a valentines gift and just can’t stop listening to it. Iz had an awesome voice and his songs tell a story that make you happy, sad, and just wonderful.. sad that he has passed like many good people.. mahalo nui loa..malama pono a hui hou..Braddah Iz
I was going to create An instrumental version of this when I got married to walk down the aisle to, back in 2005, but I couldn't get it ready in time. SUCH a great and HAPPY medley of songs.
I know this album and artist are highly regarded and have received stellar views, but I guess Iz's style is just not for me. I found the tune selections ("Take Me Home Country Road"?) arrangements, and performances uninspiring, even cheesy. I wanted to like this and tried hard to, but didn't succeed.
I love his version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. It's very unique. He combined it with What a Wonderful World which made it even better. We really need more singers like him. I hate that he died :c According to Wikipedia he died from obesity. RIP Never judge a book by its cover.
His music is beautiful and soothing! Way better than any modern day pop singer. I highly recommend this! I don't see why people can even give this less than 4 stars. People don't respect real music nowadays, an that is just sad. RIP IZ
Iz's beautiful voice evokes a feeling of sweet aloha I felt living on Oahu. Memories of the breathtaking views, the history of the Hawaiian people, the legacy he leaves behind in his music....
As I learn how to play his music on my ukulele I gain respect for this man he was taken to early but his music will live on. It is relaxing n comes from the heart as music should. This is one of the most talented Hawaiian musicians I have heard and is my favorite to listen to and play. If u love IZ learn how to play the ukulele and spread his music because it is truly one of a kind.
Hawai'i 78 has such a powerful, evocative melody (and message) that it is in a class of its own. I'd love to know if any other Hawain artists might have similar style music. The melody is so haunting and beautiful! It expresses the sacredness of the islands. This song mirrors the pain and anguish experienced by Native Americans at the loss of their sacred lands as well.
