He Was Our Heaven On Earth...

Opera Star Luciano Pavarotti Dies At 71

Luciano Pavarotti, whose vibrant high C's and ebullient showmanship made him one the most beloved tenors, has died, his manager told The Associated Press. He was 71.

Pavarotti had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year and underwent further treatment in August 2007.

First Dr. D. James Kennedy, who fought to retain the Founder's vision for America and a return to moral standards(G*D's). And now Pavarotti, who blessed us with his beautiful voice.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Beautiful, glowing man.

Shining stars for eyes, so full of life and love.

The voice that lifted souls to heaven.

You gave us much, you gave your all.

God's peace be with you now.

Sleep, dear maestro, sleep.

Your music, a gift to all, will live on forever.

Donal, this is a beautiful tribute to the world's great talent. The music that you chose was perfect.

In July we also recently lost Beverly Sills, another operatic talent.

Very nice tribute, Donal. He was a giant in many ways. Classical music had no better envoy.

How sad. He was a brillant talent, a beautiful, strong voice, ''robusto'' in Italian. He was also the first real opera signer who bought opera to so many people, espically young people and made it seem less stuffy and aloof. He was the opera singer for the comman man. He will be missed. J'Mac.
