14. Luciano Pavarotti
The late, great Pavarotti began singing with his father in a small local church choir when he was 9 years old before going on to win first prize at the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales in 1952 with the Choral Rossini, a male choir from Modena that also included his father.
