When Pavarotti first heard is version of Billy Jean, he burst into tears
His beautiful voice from within brings tears to my eyes. A joy to hear.
I've seen Mr. Potts live in Person. To say he is incredible is not giving him justice. Wonderful Voice and should definitely be in the top 5!

A member of The Ten Tenors from Australia. He placed 2nd in the 2nd season of the Voice Australia.
Probably the only hope in pop music left. - Sjinkiie
If you rate Jussi B. as far down as13, you have a tin ear and no business rating tenor voices.
Most beautiful phrasing. He sang Don Ottavio in the Giulini legendary Mozart's "Don Giovanni" to Joan Sutherland's legendary Donna Anna. Alva's line is the most elegant of any tenor I've ever heard. He should be on the top 10 at least.
Excellent lyric tenor, almost a tenore di grazia. Wonderful in the Mozart and Donizetti repertoire. He recorded an album of Neapolitan canzoni which was quite good. - tonytenor
The greatest british tenor
Great American dramatic tenor.
The very first Otello I had the joy of hearing, and to this day no one else sounds like a proper Otello. There is something missing in all the rest except Melchior perhaps. McCracken's recording of Otello with Fischer-Dieskau and Gwyneth Jones is incomparable!
MaCracken was a wonderfully passionate singer. His top tended to sound rather broad instead of rounded and full. An iconic interpreter of Otello, McCracken was one of those American singers who had to leave the MET in order to be "discovered" by the MET. General manager (at the time) Rudolf Bing was a bit of an SOB and would not cast McCracken in leading roles and only used him as a comprimario. MacCracken left the U.S., went to Europe, with his wife the very fine mezzo Sandra Warfield, and established himself in virtually all the dramatic tenor roles. He then returned to the U.S. - Bing was under to much pressure now that McCracken was a star - and re-debuted at the MET as Otello. There is a recital album, on Angel EMI of him doing Celtic songs with just piano accompaniment which is wonderful. As mentioned by another poster, the recording of OTELLO James McCracken did back in the 1960s is indeed wonderful. It also boasts the very unique casting of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau as Iago. ...more - tonytenor
