Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts gave a special street performance during lockdown.
The 49-year-old opera singer gave the performance on a street in Aberavon, Wales.
Paul joined the celebrations of a couple, Gwyneth and Gerwyn, by putting on a show on the street where they live.
In addition, it was the couple’s neighbour Hywel’s 90th birthday... so there was much to celebrate.
Paul sang a few songs, including crowd favourite 'Nessun Dorma' as people lined the streets while social distancing.
The singer said: "I was told about Gwyneth and Gerwyn’s 70th anniversary from their family via the local council who asked for a video clip to be sent to the couple.
"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.
"It turned out that it was their next door neighbour Hywel’s 90th birthday also.
"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."
