I really love stories like this about ordinary people who do such great things. Paul Potts is so shy and unassuming with hardly any confidence in himself. Then he opens his mouth and you can hardly believe your ears. It is goosebumps inducing.
He is from Wales and for years he has had a passion for opera singing. He is a cell telephone salesman and so he has not had the chance to do the one thing he loves. There is a show in the UK called Britain's Got Talent and Paul auditioned for them. This is the video of him on the very first try. The famous Simon from American Idol is also one of the judges. I love the exchange of looks when Paul says he is going to sing opera.
This is the final show a few nights ago.
Don't you just love it.
Love and laughter,
