    Here's an inspiring story: Paul Potts

    This is a great story. This is from Britain's Got Talent, which is like their American Idol (complete with Simon Cowell). He's a mobile phone salesman, looks like he'd be more at home playing World of Warcraft than singing onstage, was bullied as a kid, you can fill in the rest of the blanks.



    But this duckling becomes a swan in short order.

    Anyway, I posted this not just to make you cry, but also because his album's out in stores now. Picked up my copy at Best Buy over the weekend.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I love his story!!! My mom was so enamored with him that she ordered his CD that came out in England last month.

    I seriously had goosebumps listening to this. What great talent!
    All I needed to know in life, I learned at MiceChat.
    And kindergarten.

    Mhm, he's quite big in the UK now.
    The final was a real neck and neck, this was the little girl who was "against" him. I personally wanted her to win, but both were equally deserving.
    If no-one knows already, the whole point of Britain's Got Talent was to find someone to perform in front of the Queen at the annual Royal Show.

    Take a look. If you got chills at Paul Potts, you'll get chills at this little girl.
