Paul is an opera singer, who is best remembered for coming into prominence when winning “Britain`s Got Talent” in 2007, a British television talent show competition that originated from the “Got Talent” franchise, and Paul appeared in its first season, performing “Nessun dorma”, an aria from Puccini`s opera “Turandot”. Soon after Paul was announced as the winner, he released his debut album “One Chance”. The album entered to the first position on UK Albums Chart.

Paul Potts came from a working-class family – his father was a bus driver and his mother was a supermarket cashier. Paul attended St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School, and it was while at school that Paul realized he loved singing, although he was mocked by other students, which resulted in him having weak self-confidence. Regardless, he continued singing at several Bristol churches through his teens. After school, Paul was employed in minor job positions, for example in Tesco. However, he then studied at University College, Plymouth, graduating in 1993 with a BA (Honours) degree in Humanities.

Paul Potts net worth began increasing when he became a manager at The Carphone Warehouse, an independent mobile phone retailer. From 1996 to 2003, Paul also served on the Bristol City Council, while concurrently performing in amateur opera from 1999 to 2003.

Paul Potts’ net worth was certainly boosted initially with the release of “One Chance”, as the debut album sold over 130.000 copies in its first week, and in total more than 3.5 million copies, being certified as gold and as multi-platinum. It reached the tops in such countries as Australia, New Zealand, Sweden and, of course, the United States.

Before appearing on “Britain`s Got Talent”, Paul performed some leading operatic roles on several occasions: Don Basilio in Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro” (2000), Don Carlos in Verdi’s “Don Carlos” (2001), Radames in Verdi’s “Aida” (2003), and Don Ottavio in Mozart’s “Don iovanni” (2003). These helped Paul to add a solid sum of money to his net worth.

Following his win on “Britain`s Got Talent”, Paul Potts’ career really expanded. He performed in Leipzig  in the live television broadcast of the 13th annual José Carreras Gala, then in 2008 he toured and performed in a series of 97 concerts in 85 cities across 23 countries.

Paul Potts then released a couple of studio albums, “Passionate” in 2009, and then with the help of Sony Music Entertainment “Cinema Paradiso” in 2010. Incomes from these albums considerably boosted Paul Potts net worth.

The American film studio “The Weinstein Company”, founded in 2005 by Bob and Harvey Weinstein, created a film “One Chance” that is about Paul Potts`s life; English comedian and actor James Corden portrays Paul Potts in this movie. Further, Paul was invited to appear on “The Oprah Winfrey” during a subsequent tour of the USA.

In his private life, Paul Potts has been married to Julie-Ann since May, 2003. They met each other in an internet chat room, and they now reside in Port Talbot.
