This is a clip of a guy named Paul Potts, from Wales. He won Britians got Talent, as my UK flist may know. I heard him on an interview speaking tonight, a radio interview, and they mentioned he got a standing ovation for his audition on the show. He said he was a little disapointed with his performance, so I thought ok i'm going to find it.

And OH MY GOD.

This reminded me of something. Anyone in Aust who follows opera or musical theatre would recall a man from Melb who burst onto the opera scene in the 1990s, in his 40s, from nowhere. He was a shoe repairer. Actually my local shoe repairer, and we used to hear opera from his back room when we'd go into the shop. It never occurred to me it was him.

But check this out - its stunning. And moreso, watch the judges faces. Thats even better.





I'm going to buy this guy's CD.

I blogged about this guy a while ago. I was totally gobsmacked at such wonderful raw talent. Without training he sings like this. Give him a few years with a proper vocal coach, and he will be up there with Pavorotti skill-wise.
