Making Himself Heard: Paul Potts

Thursday, November 8, 2007

There’s nothing better than someone who has developed his talent and chases his dream.

Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely hate shows like American Idol and America’s (or Britain’s) Got Talent—not because they’re about people chasing their dreams, but because of the way they’re judged, ridiculed, and criticized in a demeaning manner.

But this is an exception to that. Watch these videos and see if you aren’t inspired to chase your dream . . .

The Audition:

The Semi-Finals:

The Finale:

The Winner Is Announced:

Here’s the fansite for Paul Potts: http://www.paulpottsopera.org/
And here’s his first CD.

    The first time I saw his audition, it made me cry. Isn’t that amazing?

    Hmm, am I the last person in America who hasn’t seen American Idol?

    Nope! I can proudly say I have never watched a single episode of American Idol. I found out about this guy because someone else forwarded a link to the first clip to me.

    I saw Paul Potts on a PBS special. It was a reality-type show where the winner earned the opportunity to sign with the Royal Opera Company . It was a wonderful show. I will enjoy following Paul’s career. How timely, this on the heels of Pavaroti’s death.
