Luciano Pavarotti

Real Name:
Luciano Pavarotti
Profile:
Born: 12 October 1935 in Modena, Italy.
Died: 6 September 2007 in Modena, Italy, due to complications with pancreatic cancer. He was aged 71.

Luciano Pavarotti was an Italian tenor and one of the most popular contemporary vocal performers in the world of opera and across multiple musical genres. Known for his televised concerts, and as one of the Three Tenors, Pavarotti was also noted for his award-winning charity work for raising money on behalf of refugees, the Red Cross, War Child, and many other charitable organizations.

He is best known worldwide, both amongst opera aficionados and the general public with whom he achieved his international celebrity, when in 1990 his rendition of Giacomo Puccini's aria, "Nessun Dorma" from opera "Turandot", became the theme song of the BBC television coverage of the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy.
The aria achieved pop status and has, to date, remained his trademark song.

Followed shortly afterwards by the concert held as a member of The Three Tenors, which was hugely successful, held on the eve of the World Cup final at the ancient Baths Of Caracalla in Rome with fellow tenors Placido Domingo and José Carreras and conductor Zubin Mehta, which became the biggest selling classical record of all time, and is believed to be the second biggest selling record of all time after Michael Jackson's "Thriller".

What an incredible voice. The emotional range he could scale was astonishing. Sometimes its better not to know the lyrics of a song, but instead wallow in the beauty of the voice as an instrument. Luciano Pavarotti, I think, had that beauty more than all others.

All music genres have their great singers - Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra, Jim morrison, Louis Armstrong, Ian Curis, Maria Callas, Elizabeth Fraser and plenty more I probably haven't heard of. But this man transcends them all.

Give his interpretation of Scubert's 'Ave Maria' a try. In itself its an astounding song. Sung By Pavarotti, it is timeless art
