It is strange that often when we hear about the death of a famous personality, we begin to personalize it. We reflect on how that individual influenced our lives and what memories we have that connect with that personality’s name and fame.
It is a fact that most of us are not a big fan of opera but that don’t stop us from being a fan of the talents of Luciano Pavarotti. Most among us seldom have the chance of seldom see in person. In fact, I never met the man. But I have enjoyed many of his performances over the decades over the television. He was no Beethoven. Many others did as well but Pavarotti was the best selling classical artist selling more than 100 million records since 1970.
Who can forget his recording with Soparno Joan Sutherland. Beside this, he promoted his tenor’s voice among the popular folks. In order to train your vocals the right way, click here to read. His is still living in the music collections of Elton John, Sheryl Crow and Spice Girls and has shared his voice with the leading pop and rock singers such as Sting and Bruce Springsteen for raising charities.
Luciano Pavarotti was also famous for performing in stadiums and parks. The Three Tenors Concert was a major hit and was said to touch the record of the world wide audience of 1.6 billion people. One of his most famous performance was during the opening ceremony of 1990 Soccer World Cup in Italy. His final public performance of Nessun Dorma at the opening ceremony of 2006 Winter Olympic Games was simply celestial.
He was also a humanitarian. He hosted an annual ‘Pavarotti and Friends’ concert in Modena to raise funds for the United Nations. He also worked for the War Child and other victims of the civil unrest and conflicts around the world including Bosnia and Iraq. Indeed, his magnificent voice and personality will continue to captivate us for long time to come.
