Alright guys, I'd figure I'd lighten up the mood a little bit and post a link to something simply amazing. It has nothing to do with religion or evolution or anything just simply a good film clip.

I guess there's a show in Britain called "Britain's Got Talent" and they had a guy on there who sang opera. I don't really know what to say, because I am not an opera fan but it will put chills down your spine how amazingly fabulous this guy is. Just thought I'd lighten up the mood. Here it is:

The guy is absolutely amazing! I am not an "opera fan" either, but I can certainly understand why that female judge was wiping tears from her eyes after that audition!

Wow! I must say he was absolutely amazing! I am also not a big opera fan, but after listening to him, I just might have to broaden my horizons a bit !
Thanks GCS for sharing that with us!

I can't see the video because of my internet connection...but isn't music just such an incredibly powerful force? It can make you laugh and make you cry...make you happy or make you sad!

.....Barry Manilow makes me incredibly depressed!!

Well, I am an opera fan & a classical musician... and that guy is great! I love how Simon Cowell's expression went from "oy vey" to "holy moly" as soon as the guy started singing, LOL.

Yea, I think what makes it so great is that the poor guy looks so sad and depressed and sullen. He stands up to the stage and no one even wants to give him the time of day and he starts wailing it out. I have to admit, I was genuinely impressed.

I agree! By his looks and the way he portrayed himself, one would have never guessed that he would have been able to perform such an amazing feat like Opera. Really cool! I love to see the average ordinary guy (heck, he may even be a little below average) make it to the top!

As it has nothing to do with religion why post anything from the ghastly programme on this on this board?
