Yes it was a shock to hear that on the news. Glad I got the chance to hear him live once.

Yes, was playing Miss Sarajevo to my little bloke - telling him the man singing had died, think 4 is a little young to grasp the concept...

Nessum Dorma makes the hairs on my neck stand on end whenever I hear it sung.

I would never have thought I could have ever enjoyed listening to opera, but every time I hear certain pieces of music I just bawl my eyes out.

Whilst searching for the Youtube clip I found the one where Phil Potts first appeared on Britain has talent.............wonderful, methinks I shall be buying his album.

I love Russell Watson and Andrea Boccelli or Andrew Brocolli as my dad calls him!

We went to see him last time he was in Auckland. I hadn't intended on going even though I have the CD's etc. At 2pm that afternoon I rang up to see if there were any seats left. There were 4. He really was passed his use by date and looked very ill, sang sitting down, but OH, what a concert. He still that power in his voice and his niece was singing too. I am so so glad I went now. It was stirring stuff. I am going to put on a CD today and 'let it rip'.:D:D:D:D:D Glad I don't have near neighbours.

There was this dickhead sitting next to me that kept telling me about his own singing career. I just wanted to listen to the great man sing, not this wally nutting on about himself. The way he was talking he knew Pav personally. I let him rabbit on for a while and asked him where he had sung. "I am a funeral singer and fly to Australia regularly to sing as well as around NZ" said the great big ejit.[xx(]

Ah yeah I remember you saying you were going! At least you got to see him perform, lucky you.

Scouse Girl was here for a coffee this morning and sadi that Paul Potts was going to be in NZ next April, I think I may well get tickets for that!

So sad re. Pavarotti's passing. We have been listening to him all day.

MM thanks for the heads up re. Paul Potts. As I don't watch TV I had never heard of him before.

The following clip made me cry x 3. What an awesome story and talent. The comments re. bullying and feeling insignificant brought the first two tears. The third tear was the beautiful singing and choice of song "Time to Say Goodbye", a favourite of my late father. He loved this song, loved Pavarotti, and would have loved Paul Potts too. We had this song at my Dad's Requieum Mass too.

IMO, "Nessum Dorma" has got to one of, if not the most emotive and beautiful arias ever written. Everytime I hear Pavarotti sing it it sends shivers through my whole body and, of course, raises the hairs on the back of the neck.
