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.
