Opera star, in his 70s, gives it all away in Iowa

Good to have news of Simon Estes, one of the first Afro-American regulars on the international opera circuit.

Estes broke into the Met in 1982 for a belated debut and was busy ever after. Now 73 and still singing concerts, he  has founded a Simon Estes Youth Chorus in South Africa and is a leading voice in Aids awareness. This week, he’s in Iowa, dispensing money, aura and wisdom.

Nice.
