Absolutely Astonishing....

One of the most beautiful performances I have ever witnessed.

Select the video described as "most powerful version"

This woman is simply incredible.

I do not understand the language; however, that is the power of song I enjoyed all the same, great voice!

Paalao,

I realize opera is not everyone's cup of tea, but, regardless of one's musical preferences, Paul Pott's amazing voice should be heard by all. I truly wish American youth had some appreciation for real talent, not the crap that inundates our media outlets on a 24/7 basis. With few exceptions, truly phenomenol singing talent in the league of Paul potts, Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti, Lara Fabian, and Celine Dion, just to name a few, does not make it to mainstream America. I would like to think that we (especially the younger segments of our society) do have some appreciation for someone who can sing in a manner that really moves one's soul. This "pop culture" crap we see constantly is pure fluff and has no substance. It is all about marketing a few hip-hop/dance/gymnastics moves coupled with irritatingly loud background instrumentals to cover up a lack of true singing ability.

I found the judges reaction to Paul Pott's "Britain's Got Talent" audition video very interesting. When the female judge Amanda (and what a gorgeous beauty she is!) asked Paul Potts "and why are you here?", all three judges faces had an expression of 'oh Jesus, do we have to listen to this!' when Paul replied simply, "to sing opera". It took all of about five seconds for all three judges to realize this fellow was something very special. Amanda was in tears 20 seconds into Paul's performance, and I doubt that a bomb going off would have distracted the audience from him.

Many thanks for posting the link to Paul Potts, he is phenomenol. I also will have his CD in my collection. Another forum question asks what music we listen to when cruising on our bikes; Paul Potts has just joined my select choices.

As a sidenote, I was surfing Youtube the other day and came upon a video of Robert Palmer performing Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Mercy Me"; I forgot that he had such a good voice and was, in my opinion, very underrated. A shame he died at 53 years of age. He was the king of cool.

Re: Absolutely Astonishing....

DakotaDue thanks.

yes I really like the Paul Potts story and as I understand there may be a movie from it at a later time A sinderella story. I even think PP is better then the 3 tennors. And we should not forget the british female singers of the same genre.
Incidently I can add that many of my friends who absolutely hate opera is now of a different opinion!, PP may have broyght Opera out to the masses with his interpetation and voice. He can actualy make Opera popular!

As I said I will have PP in my rack aswell. Josh Grobian also perform very good.

And to the video reference I can add that the exelent Chris Rea is performing in much the same voise and theme in his songs, soothing experience. Late John Denver also had a great voice but more velvety.

hehe bUt I also like teckno So sometimes the mood is in for that.
Good thing we have so many options

Deacon,

Here is somewhat of a lullaby (with a few gripping notes) from Lara Fabian

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=d71hTl1iMuc



Not the best sound quality but a very moving rendition of De Shubert's Ave Maria (sung by Lara Fabian); could be considered lullaby quality.

Here is a true lullaby from a very talented 6 year-old British child.

Hope you enjoy.
