An unexpected find


I don't normally link YouTube videos, but when I came across this one, I just had to put it here.

Even if you're not a fan of reality shows or talent shows, please watch.





This brought me to tears -- and not just a few welling-of-the-eyes tears.

His name is Paul Potts and he's made it to the semi-finals of a talent show in the UK. He says he was bullied in school and lacked confidence, but has always wanted to pursue a career in music.

Thanks for reminding me about this chap, Ell! I'd read about him, but until your post I've forgotten I wanted to check him out.

Wow. You do know he eventually won the competition, right? :) Thoroughly deserved.
