Sir Paul and Heather have obtained a license to use Israel Kamakawiwoole's beautiful recording of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for use in their anti-fur campaign. The tune recorded by the late Hawaiian performer, also known as IZ, will be featured on a DVD that the McCartneys are producing in an effort to stop the slaughter of 2 million cats and dogs a year for their fur. McCartney friends Elton John, Phil Collins, George Michael, Brian Wilson, Eddie Murphy, Paul Newman and Bryan Adams have all pledged their support for the McCartney's anti-fur campaign.
