In the early hours of this morning, opera legend Luciano Pavarotti lost his battle with cancer and passed away. Pavarotti, who landed in most people’s homes for the first time during the Italia 90 World Cup when he and Josep Carreras and Plácido Domingo formed The Three Tenors to sing the anthem of the World Cup, brought great entertainment to a world that had never appreciated classical singing, he brought it back into the general public’s domain; a legacy that surely is embraced by the arts world.
Luciano, grazie per le memorie e la musica. Non sarete dimenticati.
We shall dearly miss a man who was so much more than just a singer. He was a family man, surrounding himself with family after a concert. A true legend who has left an enormous legacy and enormous void to fill. Strange how truly famous people don’t show up in the gossip magazines. He just went out to sing, as he says, as well as he could every single time he took the stage or got behind a studio microphone. Ed – The Music Man
Thanks for the comment Ed. Indeed it is true, what you say about him. He had some minor run-ins with gossip columns but far and few between compared to the rest of the A-list world.
