You know her from the weather girls (it's raining men) and black box (everybody, everybody, strike it up) and c and c music factory (sweat now). Although she wasn't given credit because she was too big.

7Jack Black

9Jennifer Hudson

10Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
Incredible Voice, and undoubtedly the fattest guy to ever grace an album cover. Sang the incredible rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow featured on "50 first dates. "
Sadly Israel is now singing with a heavenly choir.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow moves me to tears every time :(


I listen to over the rainbow whenever I am upset and it makes me smile. Every time.
