Britian’s Got Talent Contestant Wows the Crowd: The salesman sings Opera

Updated:  December 15, 2007:  You Tube 

I was visiting the Namaste Blog today and came across a You Tube video. Ironic, as a few days ago someone told me about a man who came from nothing to wow some crowds and Simon Cowell. I flashed through 152 channels of news immediately and couldn’t find any reference, then life took over and I went about my routines. Then today, I stopped by the Namaste Interactive blog, and what did I find? The video of the man who wowed the audience.

Go over and visit Namaste’s blog, take a moment for yourself, and click on the You Tube Video, be prepared to be amazed.

One more argument in favor of God or another Divine Source existing. We have also attached a few more resources below on this phenomenal singer.

Namaste Blog: “An unSUNG Hero” — “When Paul, a mobile phone salesman in Britain, stepped onto the stage no one expected the magic that was about to occur. Sometimes inspiration comes in the most unlikely moments.”

Boston.comSometimes even the most acid-tongued critics are left speechless. Paul Potts, 36, took to the stage of a British TV talent show as an unassuming mobile phone salesman from Wales, but after stunning judges with a virtuoso rendition of the aria “Nessun Dorma,” he left it a star.” has a good article and a few video feeds, part of the story below….

U.K. talent champ: ‘Can’t believe it’ In a rags to riches story, Welsh phone salesman wins ‘Britain’s Got Talent’

A cell phone salesman who sought refuge from bullies as a child by singing opera still cannot believe he was able to overcome his lack of confidence to win “Britain’s Got Talent,” the U.K’s version of “American Idol.”

I just can’t believe it. I’m waiting for someone to pinch me and say, ‘Get out of bed. You’ve got to work. You’re late again,’” Paul Potts, 36, said during an exclusive interview Thursday with TODAY host Meredith Vieira.

Potts still has to get out of bed to go to work, but now his work will be singing for the Queen and recording albums for Simon Cowell’s label. His remarkable rags to riches story may even be made into movie.”
