Luciano Pavarotti 1935-2007
There are voices and there voices.
The are Hills and there are Mountains.
Ever since I first heard Pavarotti, when I was about 14 years old, I have been mesmerized by this gift of God.
I know most of you are not Opera fans. But you don't really have to be a fan of opera to appreciate the pure, rich and golden voice of this legendary tenor.
To me his voice was no less magnificant then the Alps.
But he was more than a voice. He had presence that few others have. His intense eyes, huge form and electric smile have made him larger than life.
Here is a clip of Nessun Dorma, which became his signature piece over the years.
A clip of him and Bon Jovi..for those that need a "pop" setting to appreciate the voice.
I was just stunned this morning to read of his passing.
The voice the New York Times called "like molten gold pouring out of his mouth" has been silenced...
I woke up this morning and The Alps were gone..
