Alone in IZ World: A Posthumous Album by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, also known as IZ, was a Hawaiian singer-songwriter and musician who became famous for his medley of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "What a Wonderful World". He died in 1997 at the age of 38, but his music lives on in his albums and in popular culture.

One of his albums, Alone in IZ World, was released posthumously in 2001 by Mountain Apple Company. It features 13 songs, some of which are previously unreleased recordings or alternate versions of his earlier songs. The album showcases IZ's unique voice and style, blending traditional Hawaiian music with reggae, folk and pop influences.

Some of the songs on the album are:

"Mona Lisa": A cover of the Nat King Cole classic, with IZ's ukulele accompaniment.

"Kaleohano": A song dedicated to a friend of IZ who passed away.

"'Ulili E": A traditional Hawaiian song featuring the 'ulili, a spinning gourd instrument.

"Hanohano Wale No Na Cowboy / Ka Huila Wai": A medley of two Hawaiian songs, one about cowboys and one about water wheels.

"Hi'ilawe": A song about a waterfall on the Big Island of Hawaii.

"Henehene Kou 'Aka": A playful song that means "your laughter is contagious".

"Ahi Wela / Twinkle Twinkle Little Star": A medley of a Hawaiian love song and the nursery rhyme.

"'Opae E": A song about shrimp that live in freshwater ponds.

"Starting All Over Again": A cover of the soul song by Mel & Tim, with a reggae twist.

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow": The famous medley that made IZ a global star.

"Panini Puakea": A song about a white flower that grows on Oahu.

"La 'Elima": A song about the fifth day of the month in Hawaiian culture.

"In This Life": A cover of the country song by Collin Raye, with a Hawaiian touch.

The album received positive reviews from critics and fans alike, and reached number one on Billboard's Top World Music Albums chart. It also won two Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, Hawaii's equivalent of the Grammy Awards, for Album of the Year and Island Contemporary Album of the Year. Alone in IZ World is a testament to IZ's legacy and talent, and a gift to his loyal listeners.

If you want to listen to Alone in IZ World, you can find it on various streaming platforms, such as Apple Music and Spotify. You can also buy the CD or download the album from the Mountain Apple Company website. You can also watch some of IZ's live performances and interviews on YouTube.

IZ's music has been featured in many movies, TV shows, commercials and video games, such as Finding Forrester, Meet Joe Black, 50 First Dates, ER, Scrubs, Glee, Lilo & Stitch, Toy Story 3, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, The Croods and Just Dance 2014. His songs have also been covered by many artists, such as Jason Mraz, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, Jack Johnson and Ariana Grande.

IZ is widely regarded as one of the most influential and beloved Hawaiian musicians of all time. He is also a symbol of Hawaiian culture and identity, and a voice for the native Hawaiian people. He was honored with a state funeral in 1997, and his ashes were scattered into the Pacific Ocean at Makua Beach. In 2003, a bronze bust of IZ was unveiled at the Waianae Neighborhood Community Center on Oahu. In 2014, Google celebrated his 61st birthday with a Google Doodle.

Alone in IZ World is more than just an album. It is a tribute to a man who touched millions of hearts with his music and his spirit. It is a reminder that even when we feel alone in this world, we are not. We have IZ's songs to comfort us and inspire us. As he sang in "Somewhere Over the Rainbow": "The dreams that you dare to dream really do come true." 248dff8e21
