As a result, Primer Beat Producciones announced the postponement until June 15, 2022 of the concert that was to be held at the Coliseum in A Coruña on December 22.

Il Divo was founded by the famed Simon Cowell, himself from One Direction, after imagining that an entirely male lyrical quartet would have possibilities covering mythical songs.

Marín, who had forged a previous career as an actor in musicals such as 'Les Miserables' or 'Beauty and the Beast', joined this project in 2003, for which Urs Bühler, Sébastien Izambard and David Miller were also hired.

Together they have published nine studio albums so far, from the eponymous 'Il Divo' (2004) to the most recent 'For Once In My Life: A Celebration of Motown' (2021), with which they have managed to sell about 40 millions of copies worldwide.

Alone, last year he released an album titled 'Portrait' in which he dared to cover 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen, among other hits.

His three companions, David Miller, Sebastien Izambard and Urs Bühler have recalled through Twitter that for 17 years they have been together on "this incredible journey of Il Divo" and they have assured that they will miss their "dear friend".

"We hope and pray that your beautiful soul may rest in peace. With love David, Sebastien and Urs", they write in the message.

One of the last concerts of the quartet was precisely in Gran Canaria. On November 28, they inaugurated the Christmas events in San Bartolomé de Tirajana with a performance in Maspalomas.
