About Paul Potts

Paul Robert Potts (born 1970) is a British tenor. In 2007, he won the first series of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent with his performance of “Nessun dorma”, an aria from Puccini’s opera Turandot. As a singer of operatic pop music, Potts recorded the album One Chance, which topped sales charts in thirteen countries. Prior to winning Britain’s Got Talent, Potts was a manager at The Carphone Warehouse. He had served as a Bristol city councillor from 1996 until 2003, and also had performed in amateur opera from 1999 to 2003.

Early life
Potts was born on 13 October 1970 in Kingswood, Bristol, and raised in nearby Fishponds by his father Roland, a bus driver, and mother, Yvonne (née Higgins), a supermarket cashier. He has two brothers and one sister.

Potts attended St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School, where he developed his love of singing. He also sang with the choir at Chester Park Junior School and with the choirs at several Bristol churches, including Christ Church. Potts said in interviews that he had been bullied in school, and that experience may have made him lack self-confidence. He has also said that his voice had always been a source of solace in the past when he was bullied.

After he left school in 1987, Potts had various jobs including working at Waitrose and Tesco; he also may have worked part-time at Debenhams. At the time of his Britain’s Got Talent appearance, he was working in The Carphone Warehouse.

In 1993, Potts earned a B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) Honours degree in Humanities from University College Plymouth St Mark & St John. In 1996, Potts was elected in a council by-election to represent the Eastville ward of Bristol City Council as a Liberal Democrat councillor; he was the youngest member of Bristol City Council and served until 2003.

After winning Britain’s Got Talent, Potts took a six-month sabbatical from his job and resigned on 5 March 2008.

Singing career
Potts first sang opera in the minor roles of the Prince of Persia and the Herald in Puccini’s Turandot for Bath Opera, an amateur company, in 1999. He then performed leading roles on four occasions: Don Basilio in Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro in 2000; Don Carlos in Verdi’s Don Carlos in 2001; Don Ottavio in Mozart’s Don Giovanni in 2003; and Radames in Verdi’s Aida in 2003. He also performed the role of the Chevalier des Grieux in Puccini’s Manon Lescaut for the Southgate Opera Company in London, an amateur company, in May 2003. Additionally, he sang with a small ensemble from the Royal Philharmonic in front of an audience of 15,000 and toured northern Italy as a soloist as part of his music classes there.

In several interviews, Potts revealed that he performed Aida despite doctors’ wishes to remove an adrenal tumour they had discovered during his illness from a burst appendix, and shortly after the tumour surgery performed Manon Lescaut. Potts broke his collarbone and suffered whiplash in a bicycle accident in 2003. The mishap and financial difficulties that followed led him to enter Britain’s Got Talent despite not having sung in years

Britain’s Got Talent
Potts auditioned for Simon Cowell’s new talent show Britain’s Got Talent at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, Wales on 17 March 2007. The audition was televised on ITV in the UK on 9 June 2007. Potts sang the full rendition of Giacomo Puccini’s “Nessun dorma,” which was condensed for broadcast. His rendition of the song brought looks of awe from the judges. Potts received a standing ovation from the audience of 2,000 people. The YouTube video clip from the show has had more than 177 million views as of 2018.

In the semi-final on 14 June 2007, Potts performed the main verses of Andrea Bocelli’s “Time To Say Goodbye.” He progressed to the final after receiving the highest public vote in that show. He performed “Nessun dorma” again for his finale on 17 June 2007, as well as an encore after he won the competition. Potts defeated the bookmakers’ co-favourite Connie Talbot, and received the highest percentage of two million votes cast to win £100,000. He then performed Sarah Brightman’s “Nella Fantasia” at the Royal Variety Performance on 3 December 2007, in front of Queen Elizabeth II.

On 3 December 2012, he was invited to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Variety Performance alongside Spelbound, Diversity and 2009 finalist Stavros Flatley. Together they performed a dance routine finishing with Potts singing “Nessun Dorma” with Diversity dancing to the song.
