Somewhere Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World as a ukulele solo with vocals is the quintessential beautiful song and message for many special occasions.
Wedding ceremonies require a slower version of Over the Rainbow, which is the way I perform it during the bride's entrance, in place of the Wedding March or Wedding Chorus.
Below is a new sample video of this slower version, adapated from the Iz ukulele version, but just played more elegant and slow, in honor of all brides.
The video below shows a complete, uncut performance of Josh Cho singing the entire song to strumming ukulele.This is an upbeat, fast version that is appropriate for cocktail hours or at the Recessional of a wedding ceremony.
Many times I'll slow it down and play a sweet and slow version for brides as they walk down the aisle.
Rather than playing a recording of this song, my live version makes a memorable impression to match your once in a lifetime event.
The song also makes for a great first dance with Dad.
Contact me anytime to discuss the details of your wedding or party.
