I am honoring Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, or IZ for short. He was a very fun and enlightening person. I never knew him personally, but he had a very strong emotional appeal to me through his music. One of his most famous songs, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” can really lift a person’s spirit. That’s why, in my ofrenda, I used various things that reminded me of him. I included a chair with a ukelele because IZ was extremely talented with his ukelele. I also made the scenery a beach with palm trees and flowers, because he lived in Hawaii. I included the movie his song was featured in because it was very important in his life. Overall I find that IZ was a great person and deserves to be honored.

Estoy honrando a Israel Kamakawiwo’ole o ‘IZ’. Era una persona muy divertido y illuminado. Nunca lo conocí  personalmente, pero tenía una  atracción  emocional muy fuerte para mí a través de su música. Una de sus canciones  más famosas, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” realmente puede levantar  el espíritu de  una persona. Por eso, en mi ofrenda, use varias cosas que me recuerdo de él. He incluido una silla con el ukelele porque IZ era extraordinariamente talentoso con su ukelele. También hice el paisaje de una playa con palmeras y flores, porque él vivía en Hawai. Tambien  incluí la película en cual su canción fue usada  porque eso fue  muy importante en su vida. En general me parece que IZ era una gran persona y merece ser honrado.
