The third tenor turns 75News
The Barcelona-born Josep Maria Carreras Coll, known as José Carreras, will be cutting his 75th birthday cake on Sunday.
Carreras survived acute lymphoblastic leukemia in the 1980s, against odds of 10-1. His battle with cancer and his subsequent campaigns to raise funds and awareness attracted global admiration.
It was in tribute to Carreras’s courage that Pavarotti and Domingo joined him in the first Three Tenors concert in July 1990.
