iHeartRadio NZ is thrilled to confirm that British star Paul Potts will be performing in Auckland, New Zealand on the 6th of May at Pullman Auckland Hotel.

The Bristol-born, Port Talbot-residing tenor, for whom singing has always been a haven and a source of joy, is living his dream. Socially awkward, bullied and taunted at school, singing in his local church choir proved to be a sanctuary from the playground abuse. Listening to La Boheme, aged 16, Paul fell in love with opera, a romance that was to set him on a turbulent journey that would eventually lead to him performing on, and winning, the first series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2007.

Truly a life-changing event, he released his debut album ONE CHANCE that year, topped the charts in 13 countries (including the UK), appeared on Oprah (twice), brought Times Square to a standstill, announced a world tour and became a household name in cities from Seoul to New York and Sydney to Hamburg. Paul’s story has since inspired the Weinstein-produced Hollywood film ‘One Chance’ starring James Corden in the lead role, with Paul writing the accompanying autobiography.

With sales of more than 5 million multi-platinum records and in excess of 600 concerts in the last 6 years under his belt, Paul Potts will be releasing his most diverse album yet – HOME through Sony Music Entertainment on May 1st.

HOME is a collection of 14 songs and sees Paul embracing his love of music of all genres. Working with long-time musical director Chris Taylor, Paul has made a record without rules, one that celebrates the beauty of the song and the power of the voice.

“Music is home to me – always has been, and always will be”- Paul Potts
