Italian tenor Pavarotti dies at age 71

Luciano Pavarotti, one of the few opera singers to win crossover fame as a popular superstar, died Thursday. He was 71. Pavarotti had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and underwent further treatment in August.

"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.

Who doesn’t recognize him? Even though that I not really into opera, I can say that he also got some influence in my life even it is not significant. The way he sing, the size of his body, the vibrant of his voice really etched in my mind. Maybe for those who ever involve in church choir, when trying to sing in tenor section, surely will remember him.

It is another loss for music industry in this world. May God Bless His Soul.
