THIS video shows the incredible moment 'Worcester's Pavarotti' shocked city pub-goers with his pitch-perfect karaoke performance.

Luke Swatman left regulars at the Eagle Vaults pub, in Friar Street, Worcester, speechless after his rendition of Pavarotti's Nessun Dorma.

Mike Carroll, landlord of the pub, said the spellbinding performance was one of the best moments he had experienced in his career as a publican.

Mr Swatman, aged 34, of Bromyard Road, Worcester, said: "I wouldn't usually do opera in karaoke but I was surprised by how popular it was.

"That was the first time I've sang Nessun Dorma in public."

The amateur singer went into the pub during a night out with his mum and sister.

He said: "We could hear some entertainment was on in the Eagle Vaults.

"We thought we would pop in for one and there was karaoke so I put my name down.

"I sang Journey first and there was a good reaction. One of the girls came over to the table after I sang and asked if I did Nessun Dorma. 

"I said yes and unbeknownst to me she put my name down for it."

The woman had asked him if he could sing the opera classic after finding out that he had taken singing lessons.

Mr Swatman started taking classes when he was six-years-old and had tuition for an hour a week until his early 20s.

He then took some time off before resuming his lessons at the Elgar School of Music.

He said: "I'd never say no to singing full time but you really have to have a lucky break to earn enough money to support yourself.

"You never know, this could be my lucky break."

Mr Swatman, who works as a commercial controller for a traffic management firm, said he has been amazed by the response to the video of his performance, which has been uploaded to Facebook.

Mr Carroll said: "We have a karaoke night and this chap came in with his mum and his sister.

"It was around 9pm. I had hairs on the back of my neck stand up, he was just brilliant. It was phenomenal.

"It was one of the best experiences I've had in the pub. You would pay money to go and watch someone like that.

"All the people that were here all came inside and started watching him through the doorway. People came in from outside to hear him.

"He just sat there and did a couple of songs, he was very unassuming."

Mr Carroll, aged 56, has been a publican on and off since the 1990s and took over the Eagle Vaults in February.
