Sarah Brightman DREAMCHASER Bonus Track 'Hawai'i '78' Now Available

Sarah Brightman's sensational new solo release DREAMCHASER is now available to order and you can now listen to a special bonus track that is only included on the Target Limited Edition, "Hawai'i '78", a duet with Israel Kamakawiwo'ole.

"Cry for the gods / Cry for the people / Cry for the land that was taken away / And, then, yet, you'll find Hawai'i." So go the passionate and heartbreaking words of the melancholy melody, newly translated for this elegant and insinuating new recording.

The song was originally included on Kamakawiwo'ole's 1993 album FACING FUTURE, which also featured his internationally recognized stripped-down cover of THE WIZARD OF OZ's "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", which has since been tributed on FOX's hit musical series GLEE byway of Matthew Morrison.

Featuring vocals by Brightman along with the world renown Hawaiian songwriter and performer Kamakawiwo'ole, who penned the song, "Hawai'i '78" is yet another meditative and moving entry on the enchanting and evocative DREAMCHASER.
