The following article is condensed from Abeng News Magazine.

It must have been the most unlikely duo of all time. Luciano Pavarotti, crowned “King of the High Cs”,  and the raspy funk-infused blues-chantings of the irrepressible “Godfather of Soul” James Brown.

Yet no other collaboration has so captured the aesthetic of perfection in incongruity as this electrifying duet performed with James Brown in Pavarotti’s hometown of Modena, Italy in the spring of 2002 in the video below. This is magic and an incredible fusion of synergies.

Both performers were nearing 70 years old when they hit the stage together and there is a dual message in addition to man being nothing without his woman, true greatness is not derived from merely achieving the accoutrements of fame and fortune, as in “living only for yourself”, but in making the gifts and talents available to others.
