Luciano Pavarotti Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI was an Italian operatic tenor who during the late part of his career crossed over into popular music, eventually becoming one of the most acclaimed and loved tenors of all time.
During his career, he sold more than 100 million records. The first Three Tenors recording became the best-selling classical album of all time. He was also noted for his charity work on behalf of refugees and the Red Cross.
His ringing and pristine sound set a standard for operatic tenors of the postwar era. He died of pancreatic cancer in September 2007 at the age of 71.
