Paul Potts sings opera
This is a truly uplifting moment. Just amazing to see this man shine. Why is this inspirational?
I think that is the wellspring of the emotion that pervades his performance. He is fighting against a life of obscurity. By the song’s end, what was an average Joe has stepped up, beaten back his fear, and broken through. In those few seconds, he put the void behind him, and his life will probably be changed forever because he called up the courage at that moment to show what he was really made of. We saw greatness, long denied, finally being born.
He is just going to have a tough time booking a gig in Cambodia.
