Sad News from the Music World, Italian Tenor Luciano Pavarotti has Passed Away


There is sad news from the world of music tonight. The Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti has died at the age of 73 from pancreatic cancer. Pavarotti brought the sounds of opera to so many who would not have normally listened to it. He was the ultimate showman with a tremendous voice. Rest in peace.

Pavarotti had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and underwent further treatment in August 2007. His manager, Terri Robson, told the AP in an e-mail statement that Pavarotti died at his home in Modena, Italy, at 5 a.m. local time. “The Maestro fought a long, tough battle against the pancreatic cancer which eventually took his life. In fitting with the approach that characterized his life and work, he remained positive until finally succumbing to the last stages of his illness,” the statement said. (Breitbart)

“Through his countless broadcasts, recordings and concerts he introduced the extraordinary power of opera to people who perhaps would never have encountered opera and classical singing. In doing so, he enriched their lives. That will be his legacy,” said Convent Garden.

While past opera stars often locked themselves in a gilded, elitist world, television viewers around the world heard Pavarotti sing alongside pop stars like Sting and Bono in his famous “Pavarotti and Friends” benefits for the needy.

      We shall dearly miss a man, Luciano Pavarotti, 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 or take money for access to their wedding. 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.

      Some people listen to one type of music of a certain era and seem to think the rest is garbage. I’ve always tried to listen to all kinds of music and appreciate it for what it is. Not a big fan of rap.

      Luciano Pavarotti is da man in Opera.. Boccelli what a beautiful voice he has also. Listened to him during his tribute to Diana concert. What a beautiful voice Pavarotti had and a wild sense of humor. Mr. Pavarotti, a voice and man like we won’t see again.. You will be missed.. God Speed.
