Paul Potts and His CD, "One Chance"

Last month, I posted about Paul Potts, a pudgy, insecure, 36-year-old cell phone salesman who was the unlikely winner of Britain's Got Talent. If you haven't already, you have to at least watch his audition performance that stunned the judges and the audience. (The video of his audition has been watched over 7,500,000 times, making it one of the most watched videos in YouTube history.)

During Britain's Got Talent, all of Great Britain fell in love with Paul Potts. Immediately after Paul Potts won the competition, on live television, judge Simon Cowell offered Potts a recording contract. The following week, Paul Potts was already in the studio. Now Paul Potts's CD, One Chance, is out in stores in Britain and is on track to top the list of album sales in Britain. At the British version of Amazon.com, you can listen to the whole track of "Time to Say Goodbye." Great stuff. Yes, I will be buying the CD when it crosses the Pond and goes on sale here on July 30, 2007.
