Can anyone tell me who sings the newer, more modern version of "Over The Rainbow" I keep hearing everywhere?

All I know is that it is sung by a man.

Thanks.

    Israel Kamakawiwo'ole sings a version of it and has become very popular since he died in 1997. He is one of Hawaii's biggest local stars and is missed because he used to make beautiful music for everyone. I'm including a link if you're interested in finding out more about him.

    There is a Jazz Version out now by Dave Koz that was just nominated for a Grammy, but you may be thinking about the Rufus Wainwright cover.
