On the eve of his first Australian tour, tenor Paul Potts says he is still surprised that his singing can bring tears to his audience's eyes - in a good way.
The Port Talbot singer, whose operatic arias won him the first series of ITV's Britain's Got Talent show last year, is making his second trip to Australia in 12 months after travelling to promote his debut album One Chance last year.
This time he will be performing a full tour with venues across the country expected to sell out.
And the talent show singer may have made a mint from his singing, but he is travelling light with only his wife Julie-Ann and tour manager for company. And the former car phone salesman knows just how lucky he is to be doing what he loves.
"A lot of people seem to like what I do," he said.

PAUL Potts opens his mouth and people cry. The mobile phone salesman has only to wrap his tonsils around Puccini and grown men and women go weak at the knees.
Even those who have only seen Potts, perform on YouTube get a bit misty-eyed. "When Paul sang Time to Say Goodbye, I wept," one blogger admits.
"The voice gave me goosebumps," writes another. "I was in tears."
But ask the man who sang his way to fame on a British TV talent quest to explain his emotive power and he draws a blank.
"A lot of people seem to love what I do," the 37-year-old singer says on the eve of an Australian tour.
How, then, does it feel to have that power?
"Like I say, I just love being able to sing."

I was quoted in Grania Litwin's preview article regarding Paul Potts (March 20). My colleagues and I were asked to give our opinions on his potential as an opera singer, which we did. If Potts is going to be marketed as an opera singer then he must be judged as one. I know that every time I go on stage, I will be judged by the public and the critics (many of whom are not part of Victoria's "classical crowd") and I accept that. It's all part of the performance game. People must be free to voice their opinions and to have choices.

THE rags-to-riches story of Port Talbot singing star Paul Potts is to be made into a Hollywood film.
It will be produced by Simon Cowell, who steered Potts to fame after he won the first series of Britain's Got Talent.
The former Carphone Warehouse salesman is to get the big screen treatment after Paramount Pictures snapped up the rights to his story, according to industry magazine Variety. It is being hailed as the next Billy Elliot.
Cowell, a judge on Britain’s Got Talent, was approached by a Hollywood executive whose daughter had shown him YouTube clips of Potts’ performing Nessun Dorma.
Cowell told Variety: “Most of these calls result in absolutely nothing, but this company got that it’s another Billy Elliot, a story anyone in the world can understand.

Blimey, there's something in the Thames water these days!
First Leona Lewis, the winner of the third season of Simon Cowell's British reality show X Factor, wowed America by going on Oprah. And now the winner of Simon's Britain's Got Talent competition--the similarly alliteratively named Paul Potts--is taking the States by storm as well.

VANCOUVER, CANADA -- Paul Potts -- the British cellphone salesman turned singing sensation and YouTube phenom after dazzling skeptical judges with the operatic aria "Nessun Dorma" on "Britain's Got Talent" -- steps onstage at the Vancouver Centre for Performing Arts with a slight limp. "I'll be Mr. Hobble-Potts today," he says, a hesitant smile indenting his dumpling face.
Must have something to do with the surgeries, one thinks. In 2003, Potts suffered a burst appendix, and during treatment doctors discovered a benign tumor on his adrenal gland. Or maybe it's a leftover from the accident: Though both the appendix and the tumor were successfully removed, just two weeks after he returned to work following a yearlong recovery, a car knocked Potts off his bicycle, resulting in a complicated collarbone fracture that sidelined him for an additional nine months.
No, at his Vancouver performance with the Three Graces diva trio, Potts, 37, is a tuxedoed Quasimodo because of a nerve problem in his ankle that is radiating pain up his leg despite a chiropractic adjustment during his previous tour stop, Edmonton.

A humble-looking man stood anxiously in front of the crowd as the judges stared indifferently at the stage. But a few minutes later, the audience and the judges were suddenly enraptured by the operatic number, Puccini's operatic classic ``Nessun Dorma.''
The man, the show's hero, was Paul Potts. Before lifting the crowd to standing ovations on "Britain's Got Talent" last year, he worked as a mobile phone salesman.
The 36-year-old rising star was a shy guy with some financial difficulties and didn't draw much interest from people around him. He was sometimes bullied in school and that experience may have had an influence on his lack of self-confidence.
But after he shot to stardom and his rendition became one of the all-time most-viewed clips on You Tube viewed by 13.5 million in the final rounds, he saw a lot of changes around him.
``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 realize my dream,'' Potts said in an email interview with The Korea Times.

on this one, you can see that Paul now "feels" the song more than before; also, you can see the end of the performance, that was rare to see until now
you can see how grateful he is with the orchestra, the laughs of the public with his humility when he peeks inside the bag of the present someone gave to him, like a little boy at that moment you have a glimpse of the human being we all root for

What: Paul Potts with special guests Three Graces
When: Last night
Where: McPherson Playhouse
Everyone loves a fairytale, especially the one about a wretched, forlorn commoner who suddenly discovers a hidden talent that magically transports him or her to another realm.
That's the secret behind the overnight success of Paul Potts, who looked so anxious and uneasy last year, standing on a stage in front of Simon Cowell and the other judges at the Britain's Got Talent show.
He didn't look unsteady or unlikely when he stepped out onto MacPherson stage last night, despite the fact his handlers said he had a serious cold earlier this week. His wide-legged stance looked confident and promising, but his voice wasn't great. It was downright embarrassing in spots, but then it doesn't really matter because Potts has a life story that appeals to people. His rise to fame is a testament to the power of YouTube and media messaging that can turn a puff of success into a flash fire before you can say: Hand me the remote.

EDMONTON - Paul Potts is the anti-Il Divo: far from being carefully market-researched and groomed for mass audiences, he's a funny little guy who, less than a year ago, was selling cellphones in England.
But, as it turns out, England's Got Talent. Potts won the televised talent competition last year, and suddenly he's an international sensation, as much for his underdog story as for his voice.
Now, he's on a North American tour, with Paul Potts merchandise being sold in the lobby like he was a rock star. You can get T-shirts, CDs, glossy photos and even teddy bears bearing his likeness, all selling well despite his podgy, ordinary appearance.
But as he says during his performance, "I've learned never to say no to something I haven't tried before."

The guy at my mobile-phone store handles my cellphone needs well. I've never asked him to sing for me. Maybe I should.
By now everyone knows that Paul Potts formerly managed a Bristol, England mobile-phone shop. Then the TV program Britain's Got Talent broke the pudgy, gap-toothed opera fan into the pop-era world of Il Divo, Andrea Bocelli, and others. With evil American Idol judge Simon Cowell helming his career, the guy is selling out mid-size venues across North America.
Thursday night he wowed 'em at the first of two sold-out performances at the Centre. He also plays Saturday night.

We all know that music can be transformative. To see it actually happen is rare, but judging from his sold-out show Monday at Centrepointe Theatre, it's one of the key reasons for the phenomenal success of pop-opera star Paul Potts.
The South Wales native - a cellphone salesman until shooting to international attention after winning the Britain's Got Talent television contest last year - is an unremarkable-looking chap. Short, plump and scuffing his soles as he walks, the 37-year-old Potts has minimal stage presence. When talking to the audience, he hangs off the mike stand with his right hand and looks frequently at the floor as he makes self-deprecating remarks.

Paul Potts has revealed that he suffers from somnambulism. The Britain's Got Talent star gets out of bed while he's asleep and potters around.
'This is quite embarrassing, but a long time ago I once sleep walked and found myself actually sat on the shelf in my wardrobe completely naked,' the opera singer confesses.

Concerts could provide a new niche market for Rotorua and event promoters say the city is well placed to take advantage.
The Paul Potts concert next month will be Rotorua's biggest indoor show yet and with 2000 of 3000 available tickets already sold, it's headed for a sell-out.
Promoters of the Potts concert say they took a gamble including a smaller city on his New Zealand tour but it appears to be paying off and if successful, could see more shows headed for Rotorua.
Events and Venues Rotorua general manager Peter McLeod says Rotorua is well on its way to becoming a leader in hosting events and should grab any opportunity to attract shows like the Potts concert.
