In the online tribute, tenors David Miller, Sébastien Izambard and Urs Bühler remembered the baritone as a “beautiful soul.”
“For 17 years the four of us have been on this incredible journey of Il Divo together, and we will miss our dear friend. We hope and pray that his beautiful soul will rest in peace.”
Marín had been performing with the band in the UK in December before their tour was postponed “due to illness.”
His death comes days after the group confirmed on Twitter he had been hospitalized.
