My brother once attended a student production of Camelot at UNLV about ten years ago. He related that, during a great swelling finish to one of the numbers, a single voice was heard clearly from the audience reprising the chorus above the orchestra and applause . The crowd was stunned into silence at the majestic baritone. It was Goulet, who after the show said that he was moved by the performance of the very song he introduced on Broadway years before, and it seemed natural to just sing.

It was a thing that came naturally to the man for over fifty years.

The whole story from Bloomburg can be read here.

Rest in Peace.
