World-famous opera singer Luciano Pavarotti is posthumously honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Italian singer, who died in 2007, is to be honored in the live performance category.
With 378 appearances at the world’s most renowned theaters, he is considered one of the most prolific opera singers of all time.
From 1961 to 2004 he delighted audiences at venues ranging from the Vienna State Opera and the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to the Teatro alla Scala and the Metropolitan Opera House.
Beginning in 1984, the continued growth of his audience led him to larger and larger venues for his performances, including US venues normally destined for pop stars such as Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl and Central Park.
In 1990 Pavarotti performed in the Three Tenors Concert at the Baths of Caracalla, a show that was broadcast worldwide and watched by 800 million viewers.
The live recording of the evening became the best-selling classical album of all time.
During his 43-year career, the singer has received five Grammy Awards, the Grammy Legend Award, two Emmy Awards and the Kennedy Center Honors Award, among numerous other accolades.
“The legendary maestro Pavarotti, whose voice has transcended generations, will always be a gift to the world and a legend for the ages,” said Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“We are proud to honor this icon and give his fans the opportunity to celebrate him when they visit his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
