Tributes have poured in for Il Divo star Carlos Marin who has died in hospital in Manchester following a battle with coronavirus, despite being vaccinated.
Carlos, 53, had fallen ill on December 7, tested positive for Covid shortly afterwards, and was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary last week, his agent told media in his home country of Spain. He was subsequently put into a medically induced coma and hooked up to breathing machines, though it is unclear exactly when that happened.
‘Yesterday the singer wasn’t answering his messages and he’s now in intensive care and intubated. [His] agent has also told us Carlos was vaccinated against Covid in Mexico,’ Spanish news programme Corazon Corazon reported, without saying how long ago Carlos was jabbed, how many shots he was given, or what vaccine he received.
Carlos’s death was confirmed Sunday by bandmates who posted tributes on social media, praising his ‘beautiful soul’ and saying: ‘There will never be another voice or spirit like Carlos’.
