December 11, 2006 ㅡ In Sabriken, Germany, Korean tenor Bae Jae-chul, 37, shed tears of emotion when he received a classical music album from Japan. The solo album featuring his own voice was produced by a Japanese fan.
Mr. Bae is no longer able to sing. In the 1990s, the opera singer was acclaimed in Europe, but, while performing in Verdi's "Don Carlo" in a theater in Sabriken in September 2005, he suddenly collapsed. He was subsequently diagnosed as suffering from a thyroid gland disease, which he had been unaware of.
