The Greatest of the Great!
"Some can sing opera, Luciano Pavarotti was an opera. He lived the songs, his opera was a great mash of joy and sadness; surreal and earthy at the same time ."
The world is a sadder place from the passing of Luciano Pavarotti. His magnificence thrilled and inspired us for many years. The purity, clarity of his unique tenor voice caused the coldest, hardest heart to melt. His charismatic charm engulfed us all, I'm sure. I know it did me. Who could not be charmed by the genuine sparkle in his dark, expressive eyes.
Luciano Pavarotti will be sadly missed. Thankfully his brilliance will live long through his recordings and filmed performances.
My neighbours will have to purchase ear plugs over the weekend, a weekend I'm dedicating to the maestro...Luciano Pavarotti...you were my hero. Thank you. Thank you for sharing your extraordinary talent with us all.
