I will like to start this blog with a couple of lists. What best list to start, that one with the best singer in history? At least, for me.
Surely, when defining who is or was the best singer in history, everyone will have their opinion, but we will try to make a list of the best singing men of all time and I invite you to contribute with your opinions in the comments. That way, surely the List will be even better.

This renowned Italian tenor, famous throughout the world for both his interpretations in operas and collaborations with duos of different types of music. The greatness of Pavarotti is going to be measured by the vacant space he left behind. There is no tenor, none, which has been able to occupy its place as regards vocal quality, artistic expression, emotional capacity, solar dimension, and communicative talent. There are extraordinarily interesting voices in the media right now, but the death of the Big leaves the succession issue unsolved.
