Paul Potts has touched the hearts of millions since his win on the UK TV show 'Britain's Got Talent". Watched by 13.5 million British viewers in the finals, his rendition of Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" stunned the show's judges and audiences alike, leaving many moved to tears. That performance has since become one of the all time most watched clips on You Tube, with fans from all over the world clamoring to share in the magic of Paul's performance and desperate to see and hear more from this quietly unassuming former mobile phone salesman.
Now, his debut album 'One Chance' has debuted at #1 in the UK album charts, shipping in excess of 250,000 copies in it's first week alone! The album features Paul's mesmerising rendition of "Nessum Dorma", as well as his operatic interpretations of "Time to Say Goodbye", "Everybody Hurts", "My Way", "You Raise Me Up", standards such as "Caruso", "Music of the Night" and more.
"All of this is like a fairy tale and I'm terrified I'm going to wake up soon and find I've dreamt it all," says Paul. "The support I've had has been incredible and I feel so touched and humbled by it. It has done so much for my confidence and I really can't thank people enough for giving me the chance to realise my dream. To be given an opportunity like this is more than I ever could have hoped for. Finally, I am going to be doing what I've always felt I was put here to do - something I love and that gives me so much joy."
