5 Navy Sailors Beautifully Sing “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”

Five sailors from a United States Navy Band come together for an arrangement of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “What A Wonderful World.” Their medley delivers infectiously positive energy and upbeat rhythm that makes you want to sing along from the very start. With Israel Kamakawiwo’ ole in charge of the band and Musician First Class William F. Edwards, II leading the way on vocals, the entire performance wins you over with flawless music that’s equally as touching.

Uplifting and calming, one couldn’t hope for a more inspiring mashup between these two songs. The band and choir accompanying the vocals add depth of sound that has you hanging onto each note as the ukulele rings out beautifully in the background. The seamless transition between these two timeless songs makes it seem as if they were written for each other, and the rich voice of the superb vocalist.

The way that these five navy sailors come together in pristine harmony with the rich enrichment of a backing choir and brilliant band is nothing short of breathtaking. It’s music like this that the world needs to rise up out of any challenge. The inspiration of the U.S. Navy Band’s mashup between “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and “What A Wonderful World” will have you appreciating life’s wonder in all-new ways.
