Luciano Pavarotti spent more than four decades gracing concert stages with his passionate voice and commanding presence.

He was born in Italy in 1935. Luciano sang in the chorus as a young boy along with his father who was a devoted opera buff.

The young Pavarotti's musical future was cemented in 1961 with a solo debut as he portrayed 'Rodolfo' in a performance of 'La Boheme'.

His early success led to more engagements in Italy and around the world from Paris to London, New York, and Beijing.

Some of Pavarotti's most notable success was achieved in the company of Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras performing together as 'The Three Tenors.'

Maestro Pavarotti shared his zest for life with others. He helped develop the careers of young, aspiring singers and establishing international vocal competitions.

The opera star also leaves behind a legacy of goodwill with "Pavarotti and Friends", an annual charity concert established in 1993 to benefit humanitarian issues.

On the organization's tenth anniversary, Pavarotti thanked fellow performers for lending their voices to those without once again, touching the hearts and souls of countless fans.

Luciano Pavarotti's personal fortune in the year 2000, was estimated at nearly $500 million.
