This was forwarded to me by my cousin. It’s incredible. I was moved by his singing.
Here’s what I was sent:
Even if you hate opera, you will LOVE this!!!
Paul Potts, a shy, 36 year old mobile car salesman from Wales entered the British version of “American Idol”. He was near bankrupt from a series of health issues [tumor on adrenaline gland, ruptured appendix, and a smashed collar bone from being thrown from his bike]. He never sang professionally and lacks confidence from being bullied as a child. He said, his voice was his only friend at times.
This video was Paul’s audition.
The finals were held on June 19, and that evening, after 2 million viewers voted by phone, Paul won the contest will receive $200,000, sang on NBC’s TODAY SHOW on 6/21/07, and will sing for the Queen later this month.
His first CD will be available in July.
WHAT A STORY!
