The Next Paul Potts?

America's Got Talent has started its new season, and it sure looks like they've found the next incredible voice. Neil Boyd is an insurance salesman with a love for his mom, and a voice that not only hits the notes, but delivers a passion that cuts through to your heart.

I have a real soft spot for Nessun Dorma from Turandot when it is sung well. The final three lines - "Vincero, Vincero, Vincero" - are a declaration that the Prince will be victorious and win Turandot's heart. And at the same time, when done well, the singer captures our hearts. The emotion that comes through can bring tears.
