    This is just a YouTube poster capitalizing on someone else's Talent. Nothing else. Pretty sad. Look at their description. It makes no sense. It's nothing more than a way to grab searches. You people are pathetic.

    In 2019, more than 20 years after he left us, Iz's songs still touch us. I hope he is smiling every time someone listens to this. Greatness never dies………..

    He's not big, he just needed a body to fit the heart, soul, and voice of his.

    Whatever Angelic chorus got him, they're doubtless better for it, what with his voice of pure gold.

    IZ died at age 38. He would be age 60 today if he were alive … and I just turned 38 last Tuesday
