I come home from school to such sad and terrible news

Luciano Pavarottii lost his battle with pancreatic cancer this morning. My father was a giant Pavarotti fan and I got exposed to this brilliant man when my father would blare his albums on the stereo. At first I resisted my father's taste in opera, I said it sucked and was boring. Eventually I came to adore this music and Pavarotti was my favorite, but didn't let my father know. When I heard my father play Pavarotti I would hide against the wall and just listen. It took me a few years to realize that loving this type of music wasn't a bad thing, I was 10 when I started to like his music and I didn't tell my father that I enjoyed listening to opera until I was 12 1\2. I had already started to like my father's other tastes in music; classical and I would do my middle school homework over Mozart or Strauss.

When I was 12, my father took the family to see this man and I will treasure the experience of seeing this brilliant man for the rest of my life.

There may be over a million singers in the world but only one can light up the world with his voice like a beacon over seas and continents.

"I think a life in music is a life beautifully spent and this is what I have devoted my life to."
Luciano Pavarotti 1935-2007

I can listen to him sing this beautiful song over and over.

This song is beautiful and I never fail to get emotional when he sings.

Same song

PS--if I said it wrong in the LJ-cut, don't blame me. I went to an English to Italian translator site.
