This is a video of a fantastic duet between Pavarotti and Barry White, as they sing Barry White’s classic hit ‘My First, My Last, My Everything’.
I would never have imagined this pairing working, especially with this song. I mean Barry White has probably the deepest voice in pop music, and to couple him with an opera singer is quite daring.
It works though, and we end up with a mash up between the soul and opera genres which actually sounds good.
Forgetting the music and the song though, I did wonder while watching this clip whether they had to reinforce the stage to prepare for bringing these 2 heavyweights together.
Neither of them are exactly supermodels now are they, and I can imagine the concert rider keeping a local catering company in business for a whole year. But that’s just me being cruel.
The song is great though, and it makes me want to hear more duets between 2 unlikely singers. Rihanna and Cliff Richard anyone?
