Los Angeles-based, American tenor Andres Ramirez has died – aged just 28.

He had served as a long time member of the LA Opera theatre company.

"All of us at LA Opera are incredibly saddened to learn of the passing of tenor Andres (Andy) Ramirez ..." a spokesperson for the opera company has said.

"Andy has been a part of the LAO family since he was 11 years old - when he sang in the 2001 production of Puccini’s Tosca as a member of the LA Children’s Chorus."

“Andy was a fabulous tenor and seriously, one of the kindest individuals I’ve met," Mezzo-Soprano Erin Alford has said.
