1. CD TO BE RELEASED 7/11
TRACK-POTT!
The Sunday Mirror, Sunday 24th June
http://www.paulpottsofficial.com/news.html

THE whirlwind rise to fame of Paul Potts continued yesterday as he started work on his album - and invited the Sunday Mirror to share the moment.

The former mobile phone salesman, 36, had just jetted in from New York to record his debut release after signing a 1million global deal with Simon Cowell.

It will be one of the quickest albums of all time - thanks to huge demand - going on sale on July 11.

Britain's Got Talent winner Paul - dubbed Pavapotty - revealed the album tracks but became quite emotional when mentioning the most important.

It's a song version of Cavatina - the tune from Robert De Niro movie The Deer Hunter - and Paul is dedicating it to his wife of four years, Julie-Ann.

WHAT HE'LL BE SINGING

- NESSUN DORMA - from Puccini's Turandot. Famous from World Cup 1990.

- CARUSO - made famous by Luciano Pavarotti.

- MARIA - the famous ballad from West Side Story.

- JERUSALEM - the hymn.

- MUSIC OF THE NIGHT - from Phantom Of The Opera.

- CAVATINA - originally theme song to The Deer Hunter.

- TIME TO SAY GOODBYE - made famous by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman.

- O SOLE MIO - Italian song made popular by Caruso.

3. I'm sick and tired of Pavarotti milking his fame.
I watched the Youtube version and LOVED it.

Even though Nessum dorma is the Pavarotti National Anthem.

GO PAUL!!
