The artistic world is in mourning. Sunday, December 19, 2021, the group Il Divo revealed the death of its singer, Carlos Marin, aged only 53. “It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that our friend and partner, Carlos Marin, has passed away. He will be missed by his friends, family and fans. There will never be another voice or spirit like Carlos “, we could read on the social networks of the famous group. The other members of the group also wanted to pay a tribute to their singer: “It’s been 17 years that we live together this incredible journey of Il Divo, and our dear friend will be missed. We hope and pray that his beautiful soul rest in peace. With love – David, Sebastian and Urs. “
The group did not wish, for the moment, to reveal the cause of this brutal and tragic death. Carlos Marin’s state of health deteriorated rapidly. According to information from the Daily Mail, he was admitted to Manchester Royal Hospital on December 7, 2021, before being placed in an intensive care unit, then being plunged into an artificial coma. While the singer’s health was considered “stable”, the group which had made itself known worldwide by sharing a duet with Celine Dion on the track I Believe in You, was about to hit the road again with a tour dubbed For Once In My Life Tour.

What did singer Carlos Marin die of?
For the Daily Mail, Carlos Marin could have succumbed to the consequences of Covid-19. As Britain sees an explosion in cases due to the Omicron variant, the way the singer’s health has suddenly deteriorated could match with the virus. Only, for the moment these are only assumptions. Nothing has yet been made public for probably personal reasons.
