NEAL CONAN, host:
You've probably heard several remembrances today of Luciano Pavarotti, the great opera singer. He died early this morning at home in Italy. We thought it's also proper to hear him sing. Here's Luciano Pavarotti "La Fille du Regiment" "Ah Mes Amis Pour Mon."
(Soundbite of song "Ah Mes Amis Pour Mon")
Mr. LUCIANO PAVAROTTI (Opera Singer): (Singing in foreign language)
CONAN: The great Luciano Pavarotti. Listen for more about his life and his death later today on NPR News.
I'm Neal Conan, NPR News in Washington.
