Pavarotti Sings with Lou Reed, Sting, James Brown and Other Friends

We remember Pavarotti (1935-2007) singing with Plácido Domingo and José Carreras. But how about when he sang with U2, Queen (sans Freddie Mercury), the great soul singer Barry White, Sting, and Lou Reed. And then there's my favorite odd coupling -- Pavarotti singing "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. The performances were recorded at a series of "Pavarotti and Friends" concerts held during the 1990s. They're all available on DVD here: The Pavarotti & Friends Collection: The Complete Concerts, 1992-2000.
