The tenor gave a powerful performance of Puccini’s aria to neighbours on a street in Aberavon, Wales.
The socially-distanced performance was put on in celebration of town locals Gwyneth and Gerwyn’s 70th wedding anniversary, as well as neighbour Hywel’s birthday.
The tenor serenaded the couple on the street where they live in Aberavon, Wales.
Onlookers watched at a distance from their gardens and outside their front doors. Watch the charming moment below.
“I felt that as 70 years is such a significant achievement, that this wouldn’t be enough and decided that I would perform for them in their street,” the tenor told Wales Online.
“It turned out that it was their next door neighbour Hywel’s 90th birthday also,” Potts added.
“There was quite a (socially distanced) street party atmosphere on the street and it was a real pleasure to be part of their celebrations, especially at a time like this.”
It’s not every day you celebrate your 70th wedding anniversary – and how lucky they were to have a singer just around the corner, generous enough to share his music on their special day. We all need music...
