A to Z Challenge - 2016

Extremely short post today...

U is for Ukulele...






The most moving rendition of this song I have ever heard.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole






Ukulele at its finest.

See you tomorrow for V!

  1. I didn't know that ukuleles came in different sizes! I agree about this being the best "Somewhere over the Rainbow" out there. I even rank above Eva Cassidy's cover, which I dearly like.

  2. I didn't know about the different sizes either. In Iz's hands, any of them look small! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I had no idea ukulele's came in different sizes! Some of them just look like guitars.
    I love that song by Iz. So sad that he passed so young. He sure was beloved by the Hawaiian people...

    1. I learned a lot doing these posts myself! The song by Iz makes me cry. I remember they used it as the background music when Dr. Mark Greene passed away on ER. That was good TV.
