He was a Spanish baritone who was a vocalist of Il Divo, a classical crossover quartet that sold over 28 million records worldwide. Alfredo Kraus, Montserrat Caballé, and Jaume Aragall all provided Marn vocal lessons. He starred in numerous musicals, commencing in 1993 as Marius in Les Misérables and then again in Beauty and the Beast (where he sprained his ankle in an accident), Grease (where he portrayed Vince Fontaine), and gained critical acclaim.
Carlos Marin, a pioneer in the symphonic crossover band Il Divo, passed away at the age of 53. The band announced the news in a Facebook post on Monday, December 20.

Cause of Demise:
Despite the fact that the cause of Carlos Marin’s death has yet to be determined. COVID-19 appears to be the cause of his death. He was put into an induced coma upon becoming ill just before Il Divo’s music gig in the United Kingdom.
Marn was rushed to an emergency medication when he landed at the Manchester facility on December 8. In addition, other people were brought to the emergency department.
Despite the fact that Marn’s organs were undamaged, his prognosis was described as grave. Due to his illness, Il Divo also rescheduled their UK tour from December 2021 to December 2022. They also apologized for causing their supporters any inconvenience. Fans were very supportive to the band for taking time off and now are offering condolences to Carlos’ family and the other bandmates. Wishing his family and friends a lot of strength during this dire time of need.
Marn began his musical career at a young age, recording his first-ever studio album at eight, a childhood prodigy. It was produced by Pierre Kartner, a Dutch singer-songwriter and record producer. The Little Caruso featured songs like “O Sole Mio” and “Granada.” He sang “Granada” in front of 800 people when he was eight years old. He recorded his second album, Mijn Lieve Mama when he was eleven years old (My Dear Mother). He began studying piano as a result of his musical background. He continued to work and, after a while, he was involved in the productions of ” The Magic of Broadway ” and ” Peter Pan,” the iconic children’s story, in which he served as director and producer.
He developed an important position as a musical artist, cultivating several musical genres and garnering rave reviews from reviewers. Carlos Marin established a reputation for himself in the music industry by competing in a number of musical competitions. He joined the worldwide musical quartet Il Divo in December 2003, alongside Urs Bühler (Switzerland), Sébastien Izambard (France), and David Miller (USA). The band prayed for his soul to rest easy, revealing to the world that they miss their best mate deeply. The other three members of the musical foursome, David, Sébastien, and Urs, have expressed their grief in the aforementioned media post, remembering that the four of them had been together “on this magnificent Il Divo journey” for 17 years.
Carlos Marin and Il Divo, the Spanish quartet, performed at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London for the Music Industry Trusts Award (MITS) in support of Nordon Robbins and the Brit Trust. With a net worth of about $20 million, rumor has that he has left a significant amount of money to charity when his assets are dispersed among his family. He is a compassionate and noble soul. May he find solace.
