Topic: Paul Potts
Paul Potts (born 13 October 1970 in Bristol, England), from Port Talbot in South Wales, is a British singer who became the winner of the first series of ITV's Britain's Got Talent, singing operatic arias and impressing the judges in all of his performances. Potts had previously worked in unpaid opera productions from 1999 to 2003. However, a series of illnesses combined with a bicycle accident in 2003 brought an end to his amateur opera career. At the time of his 2007 victory on Britain's Got Talent, he had been working in The Carphone Warehouse, but following his win, he has been signed by the show's judge Simon Cowell to record an album.
