Luciano Pavarotti, an Italian operatic tenor, who died in 2007, still has current net worth of $230 million.
Born in Modena, Italy, as the son Fernando Pavarotti, a baker and amateur tenor, and Adele Venturi, a cigar factory worker, he is still one of the richest singers.
His family had trouble with money, and used to live in a two-room apartment.
His father had a fine tenor voice but didn’t want to become a tenor because of nervousness.
Because of the WWII the family had to leave the city and had to rent a single room from a farmer in the countryside neighborhood.
While there he developed an interest in farming, and after he abandoned his dream of becoming a football goalkeeper, he spent 7 years in vocal training.
Among his earliest inspiration are his father’s recordings, most of them featured popular tenors of those days.
He had his idol and favorite tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano, influence his early steps and later career.
At nine, he started singing with his father in a small local church choir. Then he went to Scuola Magistrale and upon graduation he faced the dilemma of choosing a career.
He wanted to pursue a career as a professional football goalkeeper, but his mother got him to train to become a teacher.

His father gave his consent only reluctantly after he saw the risks involved.
Then Pavarotti started to serious study music in 1954, at 19 years old, with vocal coach Arrigo Pola.
He had his first singing success as a member of the Corale Rossini, a male voice choir from Modena. The band, which also included his father, won first prize at the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales.
That experience is what inspired him to become a professional singer.
During his years of musical study, Pavarotti held part-time jobs in order to sustain himself. He started as an elementary school teacher and then as an insurance salesman.
He later became one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time.
As one of the Three Tenors, Pavarotti became famous 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.
He died from pancreatic cancer on 6 September 2007 and left debts to his family of $18 million.
