With the support of his wife and children, he fought cancer for years. "Our entire team is saddened and dismayed that you have passed away. We will remember you as a strong fighter and hope you can now find your peace of mind," the statement read.
Carras made his breakthrough in the late 1990s with his songs "I'll never get enough of you" and "I'm your co-pilot". From 2002 to 2004 he was also a television presenter and hosted a quiz show on 9Live, later also on Super RTL.
