A TRUE STORY OF THE TWO TENORS

Turn on the speakers.

PLACIDO DOMINGO IS MADRILEÑO AND JOSÉ CARRERAS IS CATALÁN. IN 1984. . SINCE THE CATALANES ARE FIGHTING FOR THEIR AUTONOMY FROM A MADRID DOMINATED SPAIN. PLACIDO DOMINGO AND JOSÉ CARRERAS WHO STIRRED THE WORLD THROUGH THEIR SINGING TOGETHER. FOR POLITICAL REASONS. BOTH STATED IN THEIR CONTRACTS THAT THEY WOULD PERFORM ONLY IF THE OTHER WAS NOT INVITED. EVEN THOSE WHO¶VE NEVER VISITED SPAIN. KNOW OF THE RIVALRY BETWEEN CATALANES AND MADRILEÑOS. BEING THAT THEY WERE VERY POPULAR AND MUCH SOUGHT AFTER AROUND THE WORLD. CARRERAS AND DOMINGO BECAME ENEMIES. IT SO HAPPENS THAT.THIS IS A STORY THAT PERHAPS FEW PEOPLE HAVE HEARD« IT¶S ABOUT TWO OF THREE TENORS ± LUCIANO PAVAROTTI.

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF WHICH WAS THE SUPPORT OF TREATMENT FOR THE SUFFERERS OF LEUKEMIA. THOUGH HE POSSESSED A CONSIDERABLE FORTUNE. . CARRERAS MET UP WITH AN ENEMY MORE IMPLACABLE THAN HIS RIVAL PLACIDO DOMINGO. WHEN AT THE END OF HIS FINANCIAL ABILITY. UNABLE TO WORK UNDER THESE CONDITIONS. THE HIGH COST OF THESE TRIPS AND MEDICAL TREATMENTS DEPLETED HIS FINANCES. HE DISCOVERED A FOUNDATION IN MADRID. HE WAS SUBJECTED TO NUMEROUS TREATMENTS. BESIDES HAVING A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT AND BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS THAT FORCED HIM TO TRAVEL TO THE UNITED STATES ONCE A MONTH. HE WAS TAKEN BY SURPRISE WITH A TERRIBLE DIAGNOSIS: LEUKEMIA!! HIS FIGHT AGAINST CANCER WAS A PAINFUL ONE.IN 1987.

ONCE AGAIN HE ATTAINED TO AN ELEVATED AND DESERVED STATUS AND ATTEMPTED TO JOIN THE FOUNDATION. LEADING CONTRIBUTOR AND PRESIDENT OF THE FOUNDATION. WAS PLACIDO DOMINGO. BUT HAD CHOSEN TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS IN ORDER TO NOT HUMILATE HIM IN ACCEPTING HELP FROM HIS ³ENEMY´. BUT THE MOST MOVING PART OF THIS STORY IS THEIR ENCOUNTER« . HE LATER FOUND OUT THAT PLACIDO HAD ORIGINALLY FORMED THIS ORGANIZATION TO HELP HIM WITH HIS TREATMENT. HE DISCOVERED THAT THE FOUNDER.THANKS TO THE SUPPORT FROM THE ³HERMOSA´ FOUNDATION. CARRERAS CONQUERED THE DISEASE AND RETURNED TO SINGING. READING THEIR BY-LAWS.

A REPORTER ASKED HIM WHY HE HAD CREATED THE ³HERMOSA FOUNDATION´ AT A TIME WHEN. ASKED HIM FORGIVENESS AND PUBLICLY THANKED HIM.SURPRISING PLACIDO AT ONE OF HIS PERFORMANCES IN MADRID. CARRERAS INTERRUPTED THE EVENT AND HUMBLY. HIS ANSWER WAS SHORT AND DEFINITE: ³WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE A VOICE LIKE THAT«´ . HE HAD HELPED THE ONLY OTHER ARTIST THAT WAS HIS COMPETITOR. BESIDES BENEFITTING AN ³ENEMY´. PLACIDO HELPED HIM UP AND WITH A BIG HUG THEY SEALED THE BEGINNING OF A GREAT FRIENDSHIP. IN AN INTERVIEW WITH PLACIDO DOMINGO. KNELT AT HIS FEET.

IT IS THE SOUL OF SOMEONE THAT REACHED THE GOAL OF GIVING OTHERS HIS LOVE« . NEXT TIME YOU SEE A SHOOTING STAR« KEEP IT IN YOUR HEART.THIS IS A TRUE STORY OF HUMAN KINDNESS AND SHOULD SERVE AS AN EXAMPLE AND INSPIRATION.
