Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Proudly Presenting Paul Potts - A Special Young Brit ...

Proudly Presenting Paul Potts - A Special Young Brit ...

It's not fair.

Life's a bitch.

There's no justice in this world.

The ordinary man in the street doesn't stand a chance.

We're wasting our time.

And, television only ever turns out total crap.

Oh really?

It's time to think again friends.

There's always an exception to any rule.

See this super story of an extremely special, young 'no hoper' called Paul Potts.

Please watch and listen to all three videos to follow Paul's progress.

And if by the end, you too haven't had the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, lots of large lumps lodged in your throat, and several times had at least a tear or two trickle down your cheek --- then you must have died a while ago -- but not noticed.

Moreover, you obviously never had a heart or soul.







Well?

Of course he won.

As we've always believed and repeatedly said:" If we don't have a dream, how we gonna have our dream come true?"

Wonderful and certainly worth waiting for the videos to load.

What a heartwarming and inspirational story.

May young Paul find all he seeks ... and genuinely deserves.

Thanks so much for this, Richard.

Well, I didn`t see the t.v. show, but yes, young Paul has the gift.
You are right, the full "tears to the eyes", "shivers to the spine", and of course, "warmth to the heart and soul".
He stayed away from the Army, Navy and Airforce.
Makes you wonder about the definition of the word "Hero".

He could have been flying a modern jet, with the union jack on its` tail, bombing schools and weddings, or sailing aboard a trident-equiped submarine...
Instead he spent his own money and time learning his craft.

Sometimes, but sadly not too often these days, it really feels good to be British.

Everything you said, Richard and Martha and Landsker- with bells on!

I keep watching over and over. Each time, he has the same effect on me. I wish the lad all the luck in the world. Bravo!

vincerà, vincerà, vin-ce-rà!

For real -- he'll be singing for the Queen just for starters. Hope it's nothing but good in his road ahead.

That was marvelous, OB! And *so* refreshing to see Simon Cowan in a supportive mood for a change.

Thanks for this. Very moving and heartwarming. The man's a prodigy. He will only get better.

(No doubt the bullies in his past feel like total fools today. Maybe they've been taught a lesson.)

Brilliant, Richard. Not like you to miss anything though ~ you never mentioned "goose-bumps". I got then ALL OVER ME.

Thanks for making me aware of this young man. I'll be buying his album as soon as it's out ~ make no mistake.
