Something uplifting, lifts the hairs on the back of my neck

I received this you-tube link today.  I don't usually even have time to check them out, but I did this time.

This is the British version of American Idol.  Click here

 I was blown away by the story, and I must have spent 40 minutes clicking on related subjects as the story unfolded.

It was truly a moving story, does anyone see any lessons to be applied to Real Estate?

And then here

Then the inevitable

And 2 months later

It was truly a moving story, I would love to hear your response.    Does anyone see any lessons to be applied to Real Estate?

When I first heard him sing it gave me goose bumps.  It goes to show you can't judge a book by the cover. It was nice to see Simon actually smile and say nice things! Who knows - maybe with some formal traininh he will become the next Luciano Pavarotti

Thank you for sharing

I wonder if Simon Cowell would be as kind to Paul Potts if he were singing Nessun Dorma on "American Idol"..

I toured with the Stockholm Opera back in the 1970s (seems like ages ago).  We performed Don Giovanni at every kibbutz in Israel (with conductor Carlo Felice Cillario).  Anyway, I always loved opera, although I'd rather be in the pit than in the audience.

Potts is very, very talented!

Seems like this is old news.  For those who had seen before, I apologise.  It will be an interesting story to follow to see how close he comes to Pavarotti.

Guy, what an amazing story.  The ability was there, but he has little confidence in himself.  Nevertheless, he risked ridicule to participate in the contest, not knowing how he would be received.  He admitted his lack of confidence, and in spite of it, sang.  My Darlin' and I watched each segment from your links, and were very moved.  Thank you.  There is a lesson for my business.  Believe in myself, and keep moving forward.  Thanks again.

Mike, I am happy that I could bring that to you and that you did find a good lesson.  I knew there was one or more lessons.    I actually ended up sitting with my darlin to see them too.
