A great voice falls silent: Luiciano Pavarotti has passed away

Why does it seem lately that we are losing so many legends?

It was in 1985 when I first heard Luciano Pavarotti sing. It was a concert on television and even as an 11-year old kid, I though there was something magnificent about Pavarotti's voice. Over the years I made sure to watch Pavarotti whenever he was on.

Probably my best memory of Pavarotti was when he did the 3 Tenors concert at the 1994 World Cup in Los Angeles, where Pavarotti performed alongside Placido Domingo and José Carreras. I watched the whole thing live and bought the concert CD the day it came out a few weeks later. Before the show they were running footage of Pavarotti in the days leading up to the concert, laughing and playing with a soccer ball.

Here's the story from ABC News about his passing.

I don't know of what else that could be said about the man's talent and personality that hasn't been said elsewhere. But here's one thing that showcases it in spades, and I had no idea that this even existed until a short while ago...

Here is Luciano Pavarotti and James Brown performing "It's A Man's World" in concert!
