The best Puertorrican Tenor of the 20th century. A delight to hear. With a beautiful flexible and agile voice of innate musicality and excellent technique. Performed in concert, opera, zarzuela and popular music with emotion and tenderness not found often. His velvety voice and exceptional diction made his performance delightful. His music fills once heart.
A musician and composer.
The brightest tenor! Unique
If you have not listened to Nathan Pacheco, you are missing a great voice.
An amazing voice to be sure.
Runner up On The Voice, 2015. Karl has a Lovely Voice, and should be credited with it.
His ability to sing high and tenderly is unmatched. Easily the best version of the music of the night.V 1 Comment
The other greatest phantom. He's always been a great actor as well.
Good voice but he's a baritone
Still young but he is due to be in the top tenors on the upcoming years
I wouldn't have bothered adding this singers name to a list that includes Lanza, Pavarotti and Domingo. But he is (was) certainly at least on a parr with Harry Secombe. He certainly should appear on this list above some of the lesser "classical" vocalists who have been added. Many will agree that Locke's was a thoroughly pleasing, true tenor voice owned by a real man with a talent to entertain.
Vernon Midgley followed his father, Walter Midgley into the ranks of great British Tenors. He famously dubbed for actor Ned Beatty in the charming but fictional biopic Movie of Joseph Locke, "Hear My Song". Very convincingly, too!
Shortly before his retirement, he, along with his equally talented soprano sister Marietta, came to perform at Darlington (England). It was, for me, a privilege to be present to at last hear his fine, distinctive tenor that I'd only heard previously on the radio or, as stated, as "the voice of" on film.
I hope this prompts others to add some other great British (actual) tenors from a past era. David Hughes, anybody? Or what about David Whitfield? If Boe and Watson are in, then Hughes and Whitfield should be, as should John Hanson!
This spinto tenor from South Africa has a voice that shakes the soul. His notes soar. Yet it is the color and warmth in his voice, that want you to keep on listening. It is like a sweet double espresso. - sonambula9
I can feel all the emotion when he sings! Such a beautiful tone.
