Wedding section suggestion: Ceremony (processional) / drinks reception

Style: Musical

Original Artist: Judy Garland

Somewhere Over The Rainbow was written for the 1939 musical film The Wizard Of Oz and was sung by the carachter Dorothy Gale (played by Judy Garland).

There are two other well-known versions of this song; Israel Kamakawiwo'ole recorded the song in 1993, accompanying himself on ukelele and Eva Cassidy recorded a beautiful version a year earlier for her album The Other Side. The song has reached platinum status in many countries including the U.S. And Britain and is Germany's biggest selling download with more than 500,000 sales.

I originally arranged Somewhere Over The Rainbow for classical guitar when a Bride requested it for her aisle walk. It worked fantastically for this section of the wedding and also works very well during the drinks reception.
