I love Paul Potts! I have been following him since he first appeared on that British Star TV show! It is a great "rags to riches" story!

Dang! Brought tears to this country boy's eyes and I'm not afraid to admit it. That was simply awesome, it even stunned Simon. Watch part two if you haven't already. You could tell how nervous he was in Part 1 and the confidence he earned in the doing was evident in part 2. It was very moving how he tells that he had felt insignificant his whole life with no self confidence and after that first audition he realized that he was somebody he was PAUL POTTS!

> "Jaw dropping, unbelievable voice" !

Agreed...that is until he decides to continuously reherse in the trailer next door to yours !!

Of course, given any sort of problem like that...I'll just be quietly practicing my bagpipes !!

OHhh yes....... we are on the same page here.

This guy is so much more than just a voice.....

His voice comes from his Heart ! A heart that knows pain.

( " I don't even know why people bullied me. I was always a little bit different " Quote from part 2 )

I think this is why such an unassuming man, one whom I never have met, seen or heard about, can make me cry in just a couple of seconds, by singing a few notes and words in another language I do not understand... he sure can get his point across in any language !

Paul Potts reminds me to be humble as I go about my daily life. If you crossed paths with him on the street, you probably wouldn't give him a second thought and depending on your mood and circumstances, maybe even think some disparaging thoughts toward him based on his appearance or your own past experiences..... but walk softly, as you never know what is going on or has gone on in that other man's life, nor do you know what turns of fate await you.

Thank You Paul Potts.

There only two things that make me breathless and send goose bumps awry and his voice is one of them.....

Destiny? Fate?

I will never forget the look of astonishment on Simons face, or the tears shed by the female juror and audience members.

Deceased "P" replaced by "P".

Food for thought.
