Here is another rare and odd match up Tom Jones and Luciano Pavarotti – a Very Rare Duet of an Opera Sensation and "Shape Shifter" Tom Jones.
Opera star Luciano Pavarotti performed a duet of Delilah with Tom Jones at a concert in Modena in Italy, May 29, 2001 at the tenor's annual charity concert in aid of Afghan refugees.
As one of the Three Tenors, Pavarotti became well known for his televised concerts and media appearances. From the beginning of his professional career as a tenor in 1961 in Italy to his final performance of "Nessun dorma" at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Pavarotti was at his best in bel canto operas, pre-Aida Verdi roles, and Puccini works such as La bohème, Tosca, and Madama Butterfly.
As witnessed in the video with Tom Jones Pavarotti was also noted for his charity work raising millions on behalf of refugees and the Red Cross, amongst others.
He died from pancreatic cancer on 6 September 2007.
Tom Jones is a timeless artist who gained acclaim in the 60s to present day in performing a range that has included pop, rock, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, soul and gospel.
In 2008, the New York Times called Jones a musical "shape shifter", who could "slide from soulful rasp to pop croon, with a voice as husky as it was pretty". Jones has sold over 100 million records with thirty-six Top 40 hits in the United Kingdom and nineteen in the United States, including "It's Not Unusual", "What's New Pussycat", "Delilah", "Green, Green Grass of Home", "She's a Lady", "Kiss", and "Sex Bomb"
He has been a regular in Las Vegas commanding crowds for decades as a sex Symbol and performance artist.
The video of these two unique artists is a real treat with a large audience and full orchestra…
