Taylor Swift`s musical tribute to Paul Potts

London: Country star Taylor Swift has paid tribute to British opera singer Paul Potts by writing a song in his honour.

Swift, 23, was so moved by Potts` musical journey from amateur singer to superstar via TV show Britain`s Got Talent in 2007 that she decided to pen a new track about it, reported Contactmusic.

Swift has contributed the song to the soundtrack of a biopic about Potts, called `One Chance`s`, and film producer Harvey Weinstein credits music mogul Simon Cowell with getting the `Love Story` hitmaker involved.

"Simon knows her through the One Direction connection and he thought she`d be touched by the film and he was right because she was," he said.

The single, titled `Sweeter Than Fiction`, will be unveiled on September 6 when `One Chance` premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada.
