An opera great dies.

Music: Passengers (feat Luciano Pavarotti) - Miss Sarajevo (click to download)

I don't speak Italian. I didn't know much about the man except the fact that a lot of great musicians liked to work with him. But I'll say this, you had a wonderful voice, Mr. Pavarotti. Ever since you worked with Brian Eno and Bono in Passengers, I kept listening to your song as though it was a prayer.

Dying after so many years keeping the torch burning for opera music, you certainly did not die in vain.

Pavarotti's tombstone will read 'October 12, 1935 – September 6, 2007'.

Thank you and may the Lord be with you.
