    A Beautiful Person Sings

    Here is an unexpected contestant on Britain's Got Talent. He is one of those beautiful people, and his name is Paul Potts. My eyes tear up every time I watch it.

    Here's the link on Youtube...

    Thanks so much for posting this. I heard him on Fox last night and was speechless and in tears. What a beautiful voice!

    Truthfully, I didn't know what I was watching, I thought it was American Idol, lol. I haven't been so moved by music since the first time I heard Ray Lynch's album, "Deep Breakfast" played on an FM radio station.

    I thank God for Paul's voice, and hope that he goes straight to the top and stays there for the rest of his life.

    "Nessun Dorma" is one of my favorite arias and Mr. Potts' version is by no means the best I have ever heard. (Check out Pavarotti's version. It is rather his signature song.)

    HOWEVER, the contrast between Potts' talent and his appearance and demeanor, and the sheer drama of the crowd and judges "discovery" of Potts brought tears to my eyes.

    Here's Mr. Potts' semi-final performance. He's less nervous and actually sings even better:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, Scarpetta.

    Thank you Nova for the link to his other performance. I had not seen that. He actually did sing better. You are right also about the comparison to Pavarotti. Pavarotti's seemingly effortless mastery of this aria seems to come from somewhere other than planet earth. I think Puccini would have wept.

    And isn’t Paul Potts just beautiful? You see an unassuming regular Joe who lacks confidence walk onto the stage….and then he starts singing.

    This was absolutely beautiful. I am not an opera afficianado, but I think he sings beautifully for your average-Joe. I'm also glad Simon didn't ruin that performance with some wise-crack!

    Thank you so much for sharing this video.

    Makes Tears

    So here I am watching the news this morning and suddenly Diane Sawyer and Sam Champion and Chris Coumo were introducing this singer..........I listen and I cry.......tears come down the side of my eyes. They go back to the hosts and all were crying there too.....Chris and Sam for sure .........Diane?
    The audience was in awe........they were crying......
    I am so, so, glad you posted the semi-final and the first rendition......
    The story of this man is also amazing, and he is so humble.
    I have never, ever.......seen a newscast with all the host crying.
    There is something unique and special about this man.........
    His voice.......and his humbleness........
    How grand for us that we will hear this man many times again.
