Carlos Marin, singer of Il IDivo, died this Sunday at the age of 53, the band announced.
Marin “will be missed by his friends, family and fans,” the group said in a statement on social media. “There can be no other voice and spirit like Carlos,” he added.
Il Divo said he was praying for the recovery of Marin, who was admitted to hospital this month, prompting the group to postpone their Christmas tour.
Marin was born in Germany, but emigrated to Spain when he was 12 years old. An opera quartet that combines the genre with other ensembles such as baritone, pop and Latin music, he performed with tenants such as Urs Buhler and David Miller and pop singer Sebastien Ishambard.
Marin declared on the Il Divo website, “Song is what I feel, my lifestyle”
“Singing makes me feel alive, so thank you for allowing me to continue to live what I want.”
The Spanish newspaper “El Boyce” reported that Marin was hospitalized in Manchester during a British tour, where he was placed in a coma. The diagnosis has not been made public.
Il Divo’s international mix allowed the group to achieve significant success on various world tours.
Her hits include Celine Dion’s duet song “Return to Me”, “Time of Our Lives” and “I Film in You”. It also features Adele’s “Hello” theme card.
Il Divo has sold more than 30 million records and amassed 160 gold and platinum records in more than 30 countries, according to the group’s page.
