The first ever album to receive an RIAA Certified Gold Record for Hawaiian, Facing Future has introduced the entire planet earth to Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole. This is the spring board which catapulted IZ's music in to so many Film and TV projects.
This album contains both recordings never heard by the public, "Mona Lisa," "Hanohano No Na Cowboy," & "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," and also different versions and orchestrations of treasured IZ classics. Everything possible has been done to preserve and accentuate the purity of his voice and the soul of his performance. To all of his fans, across all of the borders throughout our amazing and magical world, we give to you this gift of the great man's music. -- Jon de Mello
