Il Divo star Carlos Marin died in hospital after his life support machine shut down following a Covid battle.
The 53-year-old Spanish singer fell ill with the virus on December 7 and was later placed in a medically induced coma at Manchester Royal Hospital.
The group announced on Twitter Sunday night: ‘It is with great regret that we let you know that our friend and partner, Carlos Marín, has passed away.
“ His friends, family and fans will miss him. There will never be another voice or spirit like Carlos. ‘
He had been in the intensive care unit and was intubated after being “compromised” on oxygen.
