Second Cup Cafe: Paul Potts

Paul Potts
If you're looking for a feel-good story for the holidays, we've got one for you in our Second Cup Cafe. British-born opera singer Paul Potts was selling cell phones and struggling to make ends meet when he decided to apply for a spot on the popular U.K. reality show, "Britain's Got Talent."

He blew away the judges, including Simon Cowell, with his very first performance and went on to win the competition. He's been on quite a ride since, and recently released his first album, titled "One Chance."

"I keep waiting for someone to pinch me and say 'Wake up, Paul, it's time for work - you're late again.' I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster - a white knuckle ride into the unknown. And I don't want to get off!" Potts writes on his Web site.

During his visit to The Saturday Early Show, Potts performed Christmas favorites "O Holy Night" and "Ave Maria."
