Let No One Sleep

Watch, or better yet, listen, to this. It's Paul Potts singing "Nessun Dorma" from Puccini's "Turandot" on the show "Britain's Got Talent". Yes, that's Simon Cowell on the panel. He plays both sides of the Atlantic.

Paul's performance took my breath away. The aria itself is painfully beautiful no matter who sings it and always makes me cry. But it's especially poignant here because Mr. Potts is a Team Leader at Cellphone City (or something like that) in England.

By the way, he won. He's going to use some of the money to get his teeth fixed. It just goes to show you, don't ever give up on your dreams.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Yeah, that's kinda how I felt.

I look forward to his premiere at The Met.
