Pavarotti Dies At 71

Operatic powerhouse Luciano Pavarotti has died.

His manager says the brilliant Italian tenor died after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Pavarotti was known for his powerful high C's and a showmanship that helped popularize opera.

"There's no tenor I'd rather listen to than Pavarotti. He had the most beautiful control of his voice and he made things seem so easy," remembered Jeff Reed, Director of the Bowling Green Chamber Orchestra.

Pavarotti collaborated with many different singers across various genres.

He won countless awards and honors, including five grammys and he was once named United Nations Messenger for peace.

Pavarotti died on Sept. 6. He was 71 years old.
