Mario Lanza

Dubbed by Arturo Toscanini "the greatest voice of the 20th century," Mario Lanza was one of America's most successful singers and movie stars in the years immediately following World War II. Born Alfredo Arnold Cocozza on January 31, 1921 in Philadelphia, he was the son of Italian immigrants, adopting his stage name from the masculine form of his mother's maiden name, Maria Lanza. From the age of 15, he studied to be a professional vocalist, later signing to Columbia as a concert singer; however, his career took a left turn in 1943, when he was drafted into the U.S. Army. Billed as "the Service Caruso," Lanza performed for his fellow infantrymen and also sang in the production of Winged Victory; upon his return from duty, he relocated to New York, where he performed concert dates and appeared on radio. One of his audition tapes found its way to MGM's Hollywood studios, and after MGM chief Louis B. Mayer subsequently saw Lanza perform live, he signed the singer to a seven-year contract.

After making his first -- and final -- appearance on the professional opera stage in 1948 in the New Orleans Opera's production of Madame Butterfly, Lanza made his MGM debut the following year in The Midnight Kiss, scoring a hit with the soundtrack's "Celeste Aida." The Toast of New Orleans followed, launching his first million-selling hit, "Be My Love." In 1951, Lanza starred as his idol in the biopic The Great Caruso, scoring another million seller with "The Loveliest Night of the Year." In 1951, he mounted his own CBS radio series, and the following year starred in Because You're Mine; the title song, penned by Sammy Cahn and Nicholas Brodszky, earned an Academy Award nomination, and became Lanza's third and final million-selling effort.

After completing the music for the MGM production of The Student Prince, Lanza walked out on the project; by allowing the studio to retain rights to the recordings, he was able to avoid a breach of contract lawsuit, with the single "The Drinking Song" rising to the top of the U.S. charts. In the wake of his walkout, Lanza became a recluse, disappearing from the limelight for over a year while battling addictions to food, alcohol, and tranquilizers; he also faced a series of battles with the IRS. Finally, in 1956 he resumed his film career in the Warner Bros. production Serenade; however, the next year, disillusioned with American life, he moved to Italy, settling in Rome to star in 1958's The Seven Hills of Rome. That same year, Lanza toured the U.K., making one final film, For the First Time. He died on October 7, 1959; while officially recorded as a heart attack, his passing was later rumored to have been a Mafia hit ordered following his refusal to perform at the request of mob boss Lucky Luciano. ~ Jason Ankeny

I sat on the floor with my ear glued to the radio when Mario sang. Madly in love with his voice. My siblings would tease me when I - a girl - would sing along with him! To be able to go back to those days! Thank you Pandora for allowing me to!

My mother grew up 1 block from Lanza in South Philadelphia . When a youth, he would walk to his grandfathers house at 8th and Catherine. His grandfather always played Caruso recordings. While walking on 8th street to his grandfather' s he would sing at the top of his voice and try to imitate Caruso..

The feelings if his voice bring me to tears. I was raised with Italians Uncles (8) that adored him and sang with him and for him and
"Oh my Papa" for my grandMother.
The memories don't fade!

So enjoy the fantastic voice of Mario Lanza my Dad introduced this fabulous talent to me as a child. Still have the original recording of The Student Prince and years later tracked down a VHS of the movie. The magic of his voice is unmistakable . Of course his Christmas music is not to be missed, my favorite is called "Guardian Angels".

Thank you for having so much of this awesome singer's legacy....

If he had spent several years with a good opera company vs going Hollywood, he would have no doubt been remembered along side Pavarotti, Bjorling, and Domingo and their operatic catalogs. Another God given talented life that was taken far too soon as his was a voice that comes along only once every 100 years.

Sadly he died much too young. My mother & I used to listen to his radio shows when I was young - what a gorgeous voice. Bravo Mario!

Ending this bio with a foolish tabloid style rumor is not only insane, it's racist and makes Pandora look really bad as if it they outsource their staff to employ tactless millennials with no sense of taste.

il migliore dei migliori. One of the best ever singes of all time. His life was too short. Be My love was the greatest, all his songs were. My husband was dubbed the second Mario Lanza.

In grade school in the late 40's our room went to Macarthur Court in Eugene at the University of Oregon to listen to him. The place was packed full so some of sat on the floor at his feet and listened. UNFORGETABLE

This is one wonderful voice and I thank God for having the opportunity to hear him again.

I always loved Mario's voice. Everyone else at school was into Frankie and Elvis. I'd spent my baby sitting money to buy Mario's records. I took voice in a music school in San Francisco. My teacher sang in the San Francisco Opera House. I was crushed when he was killed. I heard the Mafia story. I was disapointed when he wasn't able to play himself in Student Prince and they dubbed another actor to mouth his singing. I loved the Drinking song. We lost a great artist and he was so young.

One of my fondest childhood memories is of my (much older) brother taking me to see "Student Prince" in the theatre. I was about 7, and got totally caught up in the music. I had been listening to (and loving) my brother's records of Caruso for as long as I could remember, and hearing Lanzo's fantastic voice as part of a theatrical production was a whole new dimension for me.
